Reviewer’s Note:

A tempeh recipe with coconut and peanut butter sauce alongside flavored jasmine rice is a great meal to enjoy on a lazy afternoon. Here is the recipe for it along with some vegan pumpkin cookies with raisins for dessert.

Directions for preparing the tempeh:
• Cut the tempeh up into blocks and put it in a bowl. Add the coconut milk in the bowl with the tempeh chunks.
• Add 2 ounces of soy milk and a little coconut extract along with some brown sugar.
• Heat some oil in a pan and add the crushed red pepper flakes and ground coriander in. Mix it well and add the chopped carrots and onions.
• Cover the pan with a lid and let it cook it for just one minute on medium heat.
• Uncover the pan after a minute and add the peas. Stir it in well and add the coconut milk and tempeh mix to it.
• Add some peanut butter to it (amount according to preference)
• Cook (simmer) it with the lid on for another 15 minutes on medium heat.
• Serve it hot with some cooked jasmine rice.

Directions for preparing the pumpkin cookies:

• Add ¾ cup brown sugar/white sugar to it and blend it in.
• Add one can of cooked pumpkin, ½ cup of molasses and ¼ cup of soft tofu.
