Coconut Lime Tempéh with Peanut Sauce and Banana Chips

tempeh with lime coconut

This delicious Tempeh dish will blow you away with it’s sweetness from the Coconut and the Lime for that acidic touch. Perfectly balanced. A smooth Peanut sauce that all comes together in minutes. Tempeh is definitely one of my favourite vegan proteins and we eat it all the time. It’s very versatile, super healthy, and fat free.
It is best to boil it first to remove any bitterness and then proceed with the recipe. You’ll end up with a delicious tempeh full of flavour and with a great bite.
