Mildly spicy, you can use more heat in this if you prefer. Makes a nice change from the usual thai dishes.

Decided to surprise my wife with this as she's a fan of Thai cuisine and she absolutely loved it! She's Vietnamese and very picky with food, so it's highly impressive. Rich with flavour and freshness. Still tastes good the next day. Good to cut the tempeh very thin.
We are not big tempeh eaters, but loved the flavors in the recipe, so I tried it - delicious! It was a really basic recipe that with great balance for all the different flavors.
Awesome, fresh meal! Will be a keeper for sure.
