Spicy Peanut Butter Tempeh

What you need: 

oil, as needed
1 (12 ounce) package tempeh, cubed
1-2 cloves garlic, diced
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon chipotle pepper powder or chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon turmeric
2-3 squirts Bragg's liquid aminos
cooked rice, to serve

What you do: 

1. Fry the tempeh with some oil, making it golden brown, adding the garlic towards the end of the fry.
2. While the fry is going on, mix the peanut butter, coconut milk, spices, and Bragg's in a separate bowl.
3. When the tempeh is fried the way you want it, turn off the burner and add the peanut butter sauce and stir so that all of the tempeh is coated.
4. Serve it over the rice right away, or wait a few minutes while the sauce heats up more and thickens. If you let it sit this way, the sauce will stick to the tempeh better.
Serve with a flourish and enjoy!

Very yummy!!  Nice and aromatic!  thanx


I doubled the sauce, added a sliced red pepper and broccoli, and some red pepper flakes.  Tasted great, but the sauce was really thick.  I will thin it out a little maybe with almond milk or water.  Otherwise, really yummy!


I recently tried this recipe, and my boyfriend and I loved t!  I doubled the sauce recipe and added in a bunch-load of vegetables (broccoli, peppers, and onions) and served it over jasmine rice--delicious!  I actually didn't end up using all the extra sauce, but I'm saving it to do another go-round later this week.  Thanks for the great recipe!


This was amazing!! Thanks for the recipe!! 5 stars!


It's Tempeh, not seitan you tofurkeys!  What you talkin' about Dinkers?  :o


I actually came to see what this "spicy peanut butter" is all about - turns out it's about seitan  ;D

Quintess, in the main q&a page: there's a box on the rvery right hand side that says "new topic." It's next to "new poll" Start a topic about spicy peanut butter! To spice, or not to spice?  ???


Hi Baypuppy,
Thanks for your response. No, I don't want to review a recipe. I want to start a post. I know how to submit a recipe, but not a standard post.
Thanks again!! :)


OK, I am really sorry to do this, but I know BayPuppy can help me!! Your recipe sounds yummy, but my reply is actually a very basic question that I can't find the answer to anywhere. Is it right in front of me? If so, I can't see it. My question is: How do I start my own post? I only know how to post when I am replying to someone else's post.
Again, sorry to use your yummy recipe as a way to ask this! ::)
