How to make this Tempeh Nasi Goreng Recipe
Preparing your sauce
To start with, preheat your oven to 220ºC. While you’re waiting for that to heat up, place your chillis on a lined baking tray and bake them for 5 minutes before adding the unpeeled cloves of garlic and the ginger to the baking tray. Now bake everything together for another 10 minutes until the garlic and ginger soften and the chillies blacken.
Next, take the chilli stalks out of the tray, peel the cloves of garlic and them both to a blender with the ginger, tamari soy sauce, coconut sugar and lime juice. Now blitz everything together until you’re left with a smooth mixture and add chilli paste until you’re happy with the flavour.
How to cook the tempeh and vegetables
Splash a little peanut oil in a wok and cook the tempeh pieces. Once they start getting crispy, remove them from the pan and set them aside. Now add the white parts of your sliced spring onions and story fry until soft and set them aside with the tempeh.
Add a little more peanut oil to the wok and fry your vegetables until they’ve softened. Be sure to add the cabbage and peppers last so they still have a bit of crunch and then set all your veggies aside.
Cooking your rice
Next, pour your blended sauce into the wok with a splash of water and cook for 2 minutes before adding your rice to the wok and mixing it all together.
Now your sauce is cooked, add the spring onions, veggies and tempeh back to the wok and heat through.
To serve, sprinkle the leftover spring onions and roasted peanuts.
