  1. My first time making this recipe and cooking with tempeh. It was pretty tasty, but as mentioned in other comments, the tempeh is somewhat flavorless and the sauce overall is blandish (in my opinion). I added yellow pepper and spinach! I would definitely make this again but will switch us the spices to make it - Read more ...
  2. I added crushed red pepper and peas
  3. This was my first time cooking with tempeh and I was unsure of what to expect. I liked the dish, the sauce had a nice curry and coconut flavor. In the cube form, the tempeh didn't have much flavor. Nothing penetrates through the cube, unlike tofu. Next time I will either crumble it or dice - Read more ...
  4. I made this without making changes and we thought it was a little bland. We liked the flavor overall but if we make it again we will try adding fish sauce and maybe more of each spice.
