This is reasonably simple, and calls for all the things that make Thai dishes so good – chilli, garlic, coriander, coconut milk, lime… oh boy.
This will probably feed two, with leftovers. Feel free to double or otherwise tweak to your liking – as I recommend with all recipes!
1 block tempeh, cut either into strips or diced
1/2 cup vegetable stock
2-3 tablespoons of soy sauce (I used light soy, so needed more)
1-inch piece grated ginger
chopped chillies according to your heat preference
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 400ml can good-quality coconut milk
chopped veggies – I used carrot, mushroom, broccoli and zucchini
2 sliced green onions
1/4 cup brown sugar
juice of 1 lime
coriander and extra sliced chilli, to serve
1. Marinate the tempeh cubes in stock, soy, ginger, garlic and chilli for as long as you like.
2. Scoop out tempeh and set aside. Scoop out ginger, garlic and chilli from the marinade and fry gently with green onion until flavours are released.
3. Turn up the heat a little and add tempeh, cooking about 5 minutes until golden.
4. Turn heat down to low, and add coconut milk, salt and sugar. You can also add a little extra stock here for flavour if you like. Add veggies.
5. Just before serving, after the sauce has heated through, squeeze in the juice of lime. Top each serving with coriander and chilli
