Tempeh Curry

Tempeh Curry
Tofu may be the soy food darling for most people, but have you ever tried tempeh? It's a fermented soybean product with origins in Indonesia, that uses pressed, whole soy beans (sometimes mixed with other grains) This curry is a great introduction to tempeh, as it's flavourful and very easy to make. I have made this with smoked tempeh and it was delicious!
Recipe type: Main Dish
Cuisine: Indian, Indonesian
Makes: 4-6 servings
  • 1½ lb (680 g) small waxy potatoes, halved

  1. Place potatoes in a medium saucepan or pot and add water to cover. Bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer. Cook until the potatoes are tender throughout. Set aside.
