 Ingredients List

  • ----------TEMPEH------------
  • 1/2 c Water
  • 2 ts Salt
  • 1/2 ts Coriander, ground
  • 1 Garlic clove, minced
  • 1 pk Tempeh, cubed
  • 1/4 c Cornstarch
  • Oil for deep frying
  • -----Sweet & Sour Sauce-----
  • 1 tb Oil
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 1 1/4 c Water
  • 2 1/2 tb Honey
  • 4 ts Soy sauce
  • 1 tb White vinegar
  • 1 tb Tahini
  • 1/2 ts Grated ginger
  • 1 Green onion, sliced
  • 2 tb Cornstarch


Mix water*, salt (reduce if you want), coriander & garlic in a bowl. Dip
tempeh chunks into bowl & then coat with cornstarch. Deep fry in hot oil
till golden brown. Drain on paper towels & set aside.

SAUCE: Heat oil in skillet & saute onion for 4 to 5 minutes. Add water,
honey, soy sauce, vinegar, tahini, ginger & green onion. Bring to a boil.
Dissolve cornstarch in 2 tb water & stir into sauce. Stir till thickened.
Place tempeh chunks into the sauce & cook briefly over low heat till heated
through. Serve over rice or pasta. Great hot or cold.

* I usually save the mixture that I've used to dip the tempeh chunks & add
enough water to make up to 1/2 cup.
