As one of my favorite food, tempeh shows up a lot at the dining table for lunch or dinner. Recently, my mom taught me another way to enjoy it. Tossed with garlic, shallots, and chili peppers, and lightly drizzled with sweet soy sauce, I may have found another version to love.

Here’s how I do it and the list of ingredients:

  • 1 organic soy tempeh (8oz) (cut into small square pieces)
  • 3 garlic (thin sliced)
  • 2 shallots (thin sliced)
  • 2 cayenne peppers (warning: spicy! For milder option, try using bigger peppers such as: jalapeno, poblano, banana, bell or sweet peppers)
  • 2 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon of sweet soy sauce (found it at Asian grocery store)

Steps:

  • Heat up a medium pan, add vegetable oil
  • Lightly brown the sliced garlic, shallots, and peppers
  • Remove from pan and set aside
  • Using the remaining oil to brown the tempeh
  • Return the garlic, shallots, and peppers and mix them up with the tempeh
  • Add the sweet soy sauce, stir, and serve
