  • Leftovers: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to four days.
  • Serving Size: One serving size is equal to approximately four slices of tempeh, one cup of vegetable mix, and 1/2 cup of rice.
  • Gluten-Free: Substitute soy sauce for gluten-free tamari.
  • More Flavor: Add a squeeze of lime to the plate right before serving for a zesty twist.
  • Prep Ahead: This tempeh can be marinated in the fridge overnight, however, the peanut butter sauce will thicken and solidify. Once the tempeh and marinade are reheated, it will thin back out.
