1/2 cup organic ketchup
2 cloves garlic sliced/chopped
1/4 cup tbsp honey/agave
4 tsp soy sauce
4 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp salt
2 pinches black pepper
Chili flakes or fresh chill sauce (to taste)
Simple right?! And so delicious! Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, set aside. NOTE: You'll have lots of sauce leftover if you're only using one block of tempeh. This recipe is enough for two blocks of tempeh or one block plus leftovers for another recipe. If you don't want leftovers just halve the recipe. :) The only thing is you may not have sauce to reserve for frying at the end, in that case add a little extra ketchup/soy sauce mixture to act as the "reserved sauce."
You'll also need:
Tempeh (1 block)
Veggies (any kind will do!)
Next you're going to slice up and marinate your tempeh!
Leave in marinade/sauce for at least half an hour. Reserve extra sauce in a separate bowl (2 tbsp worth)
While you're waiting, make the rice! My new favourite way to cook rice: Add rice and water in a pot, add a little extra water (about 1/4 cup) and add in your favourite veggies to cook! (I used chopped carrots) Once rice is done, drain in a strainer and serve! You're only using one pot and it reduces clean up!
Set up the rice:
And serve tempeh over top! Yum! This is seriously one of the best tasting tempeh recipes I've ever made. If you like extra spice, add some chill flakes or hot sauce.
