  • 1 package tempeh, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • ½ large field cucumber, diced
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil (untoasted) or olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider or brown rice vinegar
  • Chili paste to taste

  1. For tempeh that is not pre-cooked, put your diced tempeh in the oven or toasted oven at 300-350F for 15 minutes or so, until lightly browned.
  2. Prepare the sauce by whisking all the ingredients together in a bowl. Adjust tamari and chili to your taste, add a bit of water if you want a thinner consistency, and let the sauce sit to combine while you prepare the vegetables.
  3. Cut the vegetables and tempeh to approximately the same size, and toss together in a bowl. Pour the sauce over them, and toss to coat.
  4. Serve garnished with fresh cilantro or chopped peanuts.
