1/2 package of soy tempeh
2 tablespoons of peanut butter(creamy or chunky)
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon of red chili flakes
Braggs liquid aminos
1/2 teaspoon of minced ginner
3 garlic cloves

Then add ginger and 2 cloves of garlic minced. Stir again and let sit while you chop the vegetables.
Heat oil in a wok or skillet adding onion and red pepper then asparagus, broccoli and tempeh. Finally add the mushrooms.
I like to chop the water chestnuts and sprinkle over the top. Serve over brown rice or soba noodles.

I liked this.  I have been wanting to figure out new ways to cook with tempeh, and mixing it with the peanut butter was a really great method. I didn't have the same veggies called for in the recipe, so I used zucchini, oinion, mushrooms and corn.  Just everything I had on hand!  I think next time I will make some extra sauce to pour on the rice. 


this did not turn out for me, but i would be willing to keep trying until it works!
It was VERY spicy, however I may not have used enough vegetables and I think my sauce was not as "runny" as was probably intended.
Otherwise, Im not sure where I went wrong!


This turned out very very good! I took other reviewers advice and used half braggs and half oj for the sauce to lighten up the salty flavor. I will definitely make this again, although next time I will steam all the vegetables and them add them to the tempeh to cut down on the oil. I also doubled the recipe and I was very happy that I did.


Really good!  I didn't have any Braggs so I used water and a teeny bit of sodium free soy sauce; turned out great!


Pretty Good. Stated to get real salty while I was adding the Braggs (am i the only one that thinks Braggs is the saltiest thing on the planet!) so I added water instead...found it was still pretty salty so I added some O.J. while it was cooking to mellow it out again. good mix of flavors, I will make this again.
