This rich and flavourful satay tempeh marinade is super easy to make for a great addition to any meal.


  • ⅓ cup plain peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
  • ¼ cup tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely grated (or ½ teaspoon ground ginger)
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil (untoasted is fine as well)
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (or more if you like spicy food)
  • Juice of half a lime (or lemon)
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar (or 1 tbsp maple syrup)
  • ⅓ cup of stock, or water
  • 300g plain tempeh block, cut into cubes


  1. In a bowl, combine all ingredients except the tempeh and whisk together.
  2. In a flat glass container, add in the tempeh and pour over the marinade. Make sure that it’s all covered equally.
  3. Set it aside in the fridge for at least one hour, tossing the tempeh half way through to make sure it’s all evenly distributed. You can also marinade overnight.
  4. In a medium hot wok or skillet, add the tempeh mix and cook for around 8 minutes tossing occasionally.
  5. Serve however you like! Suggestions above.
