Lemon Dill Tempeh

with Make Ahead Option & Freezer Friendly

Steak Entree

Cooking tofu is too much work! 


I know tofu can actually be pretty tasty, but I like things that are simple and donโ€™t take an hour to wring out. So I've found that tempeh is an inexpensive and healthy alternative that comes together into a meal quickly. 


I also love that I can ๐™–๐™ก๐™ฌ๐™–๐™ฎ๐™จ ๐™๐™–๐™ซ๐™š ๐™ž๐™ฃ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™›๐™ง๐™ž๐™™๐™œ๐™š for last minute meals because it doesn't usually expire for months after buying it. It's a staple in my house. 


This tangy tempeh and sauce is so yummy served over sautรฉed asparagus and cauliflower rice! But regular rice or even fresh spinach is great too! ๐’๐๐Ž๐Ž๐๐ˆ๐„ ๐“๐ˆ๐: Double the recipe and freeze half the sauce for a simple dinner when having a #FibroFlare.

๐ˆ๐ง๐ ๐ซ๐ž๐๐ข๐ž๐ง๐ญ๐ฌ:

  • 2- 8oz packs tempeh, each cut into 4 pieces, then sliced in half (I โค๏ธ @lightlifefoods tempeh)

  • 1/2 cup onion, diced

  • 1/2 cup water + @betterthanbouillon (or chicken broth or veg broth for vegan)

  • 1+1/4 cup full fat canned coconut milk

  • 1-2 pinches turmeric (optional)

  • 3 tbsps fresh lemon juice

  • 3-4 tbsp fresh dill, minced

  • Salt and (white) pepper to taste

  • 1.5 tsp cornstarch

  • 3 tbsp COLD water

๐Œ๐ž๐ญ๐ก๐จ๐:

  1. In a few tsps of oil, brown each side of the tempeh lightly. Move to a plate.

  2. In the same pan add a few more tsps oil and sautรฉ the onions until translucent and a little browned.

  3. Stir in the water+boullion (or broth of your choice), coconut milk. Add in a pinch at a time of turmeric to get the yellow color you like. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer and cook 12 mins. It'll still be a little thin.

  4. Stir in lemon juice, dill, and season with S&P and cook 3-4 more mins.

  5. In a small bowl combine cornstarch and COLD water. Stir into sauce and cook until thickened.

  6. Return the tempeh to the sauce until heated through.
