VEG Lemongrass & Galangal Earthy Veg with Organic Asian Style Tempeh
The inspiration to come up with this meal came from the fragrant scent of lemongrass and unique taste of galangal (a cousin of ginger and turmeric, that is equally mean nutritionally!), and how we could use these wonderful flavours combined with vegetables that are noble and loved by everyone.
The result was this magnificent meal that features heavenly roasted sweet potatoes and pumpkin, coated with a touch of turmeric and galangal. Paired with them comes a side of steamed broccoli adding colour and great nutritional value to the dish.
The organic tempeh that comes with this dish is marinated overnight with coriander seeds, garlic, pepper and extra virgin olive oil, and then grilled to perfection. It provides all the complete protein in the meal and tastes absolutely AMAZING!

CHEF’S TIP: Have this meal warmed up and chop some fresh chili and coriander leaves to sprinkle over the top. Warm up the tempeh separately with some oil in a fry pan for 2 or 3 min.
WARMING UP: Pre-heat oven @ 180ºc. Pierce film a few times and place in oven for 12min. Alternatively, microwave it for 1:30min. NOTE: When warming up in the oven, the label will turn black and film may come off slightly. This is totally normal and won’t affect in any way the quality of the food.
