Teriyaki ProTempeh


Serves: 2

Cooking Time: 20 mins


  • 200g ProTempeh

  • 2tbs  Coconut oil (or rapeseed oil)

Tempeh Marinade

  • 3tbs veggie broth

  • 1tbs tamari (soy sauce if not)

  • 1/2tsp garlic powder

  • 1/4 tsp onion powder


Teriyaki Sauce

  • 4tbs Tamari sauce (or dark soya sauce)

  • 1tsp sesame oil

  • 2tbs maple syrup or honey

  • 1tsp sriracha (or hot sauce)

  • 1tsp rice wine vinegar

  • 1 clove of minced fresh garlic

  • 1/2 tsp corn starch (optional)

  • 1/4 tsp liquid smoke (optional)


  1. Cut tempeh into triangles or squares and steam in a steamer basket for 10 minutes (optional but makes the tempeh extra tasty).

  2. Add all tempeh marinade ingredients into a bowl and whisk together.

  3. Place tempeh in a dish and pour marinade over. Marinate for at least 20 mins.

  4. Place 2 tbsp coconut oil in a pan and sear the tempeh 3-5 minutes on each side until crispy.

  5. Mix teriyaki sauce ingredients in large bowl.

  6. Once tempeh is cooked, add tempeh to teriyaki sauce, covering the tempeh.

  7. Take tempeh out of the sauce (leaving the extra sauce in the bowl) and add back to pan.

  8. Heat tempeh again for about 30 seconds on each side to caramelize the sauce on the tempeh.

  9. Turn off heat and pour the remaining sauce over the tempeh in the pan. Leave for about a minute for the rest of the sauce to thicken a bit.

  10. Garnish with sesame seed and spring onion (optional) and serve with rice or noodles.
