Tempeh Satay

Tempeh Satay is one of my favorite Southeast Asian foods. Satay is a popular Indonesian dish of grilled meat on skewers. With tempeh as the meat substitute, this dish is hearty, protein-rich and full of nutrients!

What is Tempeh?

Tempeh is a fermented soybean product from Indonesia. It has a firm, meaty texture and an earthy nutty flavor. It’s a great meat substitute for your plant-based meals because it is very high in protein, dietary fibers, and vitamins.

Where to buy it

Mostly likely, your local health food markets sell tempeh. For those in Japan, tempeh is sold in major supermarkets like AEON, and also on Amazon.

Ingredients

Other than tempeh, here’s what you will need for the marinade:

  • soy sauce
  • sesame oil
  • ginger
  • paprika
  • maple syrup

How to make Tempeh Satay

There are 3 simple steps to making this dish.

  1. Boil or steam tempeh – this removes the slight bitterness of tempeh, and prepares it to absorb the flavors of the marinade
  2. Marinate – marinate tempeh for at least 2 hours. You could also leave it in the fridge to marinate overnight. The longer you marinate it, the more flavorful it will be.
  3. Cook – thread tempeh on skewers and pan fry it.

How to Serve and Store

My favorite way to enjoy satay is with a spicy peanut sauce. Here’s what you will need to make your own peanut sauce:

  • peanut butter
  • soy sauce
  • maple syrup
  • Gochujang or another chili paste
  • rice vinegar
  • sesame oil
  • ginger
  • garlic
  • chili fakes

A full recipe for my peanut sauce can be found here.

Another great way to serve tempeh satay is to add it to your salads and noodle dishes, or use it as a filling for tacos and burritos.

Leftovers can be covered and stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. In the freezer, they will keep well for up to 1 month.
