Looking for a delicious but easy Tempeh recipe? This Tempeh Satay by De Hobbit will become your favourite one!
Originally devised in Indonesia, tempeh is a very important full protein dietary source, equivalent to meat, eggs and milk. Like tofu, it is made from cooked soya beans that are compressed and fermented to form a block held together by a white fibrous network called mycelia. Tempeh is much less processed than tofu and, weight for weight, it is also higher in protein.
Like tofu, tempeh is rarely eaten by itself but it is a perfect ingredient for many recipes! Here below what you’ll need to prepare a tasty Tempeh Satay:
Ingredients (8 Skewers)
- 2 packs of De Hobbit tempeh (2 x 200 g)
- 2 sweet peppers
- 1 small red onion (50 g)
For the tempeh marinade:
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp cider vinegar
- 1 tbsp smoked paprika powder
- 100 ml neutral oil
- pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 200°C. Cover a baking tray with baking paper. Finely slice the onion and mix with the other marinade ingredients.
Slice the tempeh into 2 cm cubes and marinade in the mixture for fifteen minutes. Slice the sweet peppers into 2 cm cubes. Make 8 satay sticks by skewering cubes of tempeh and sweet pepper alternatively.
Place the satay skewers on the baking tray and roast for 20 to 30 minutes or until the sweet pepper is ‘al dente’ and the tempeh has turned to golden brown.
