Ingredients

  • 1 block (240 g) of tempeh
  • 8 wooden skewers (soaked in water for 30 minutes)
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) toasted sesame oil
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) lemon juice
  • 15 ml (2 tbsp) tamari sauce
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) maple syrup
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) sambal oelek
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) finely chopped ginger
  • 10 ml (2 tsp) curry powder
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) smoked paprika (optional)

Preparation

  1. In a large pot, bring water to a boil and cook tempeh for 10 minutes. Remove and pat dry with paper towels. It removes the bitterness from the tempeh and allows it to better absorb the flavours added later (this step can be skip).
  2. Cut tempeh into 7 strips and set aside.
  3. In a square dish measuring approximately 21 cm x 21 cm, mix all the other ingredients with a fork. Add tempeh and marinate for at least 1 hour (at room temperature) or 3 hours (in the refrigerator), making sure to turn the tempeh from time to time.
  4. Thread the tempeh on the skewers and cook on the BBQ over high heat for about 10 minutes, turning from time to time.
  5. Enjoy with a peanut sauce and our sesame and orange carrot salad perfectly complements this recipe!
