Recipe I found at and altered to suit my tastes. The sauce adds a lot of flavor to the tempeh. As it's thickening, you can adjust the spices to your liking. Good served over rice!

  1. Saute onion in oil till almost tender.
  2. Combine all ingredients, except tempeh, in a pan and cook till slightly thickened, about 15 to 20 minutes.

This is great when you need have some tempeh and can't be bothered making anything too difficult. My toddler loves anything covered in tomato sauce and tempeh contains all the amino acids. Making the sauce is quite quick - I turned the heat up and managed to save some time. And waiting for the tempeh to bake gave me enough time to go check Zaar for tomorrow's meal! Good recipe Yogi!

I just recently learned that tempeh can actually taste good if you bake it. I cut a slab into 6 triangular pieces and baked in the sauce, covered. I uploaded a photo (how was there not already one on here?). Really great, easy recipe. Thanks Yogi!
