Sambal Tempeh and Purple String Beans

This is a simple dinner I cook.
Handful of homegrown purple string beans
1 packet tempeh(fermented soy and grains)
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1/2 large red onion (chopped)
1 tablespoon crispy prawn sambal
1 tablespoon sweet soy sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Soak in warm water suhun
2 tablespoon olive oil
Salt to taste

Heat olive oil in a big skillet on medium.
Add onion and garlic.
Add tempeh. Cover.
Add purple string beans.
Add crispy prawn sambal or any other sambal/red chili paste.
Add soy sauce.
Add salt to taste.
Add 1/2 cup water if too dry.
Cover. Let it cook until the tempeh and the beans soft.
Add suhun before turning the heat off.
Serve warm.
Note: Yes, it is true that the purple beans turn green when cooked.:-)


  1. Hi Zu,

    Goodness me! What a wonderful post! My hubby loves tempeh!

  2. Pebbles, lucky you! I had to pack the rest of this meal into small container and freeze them. My husband will not eat soy if he knew.
