Thai Coconut Tempeh with Pineapple Salsa

Thai Coconut tempeh

This Thai Coconut Tempeh dish was inspired by a chicken recipe in a recent issue of Martha Stewart Living. I was lured in by the words “coconut” and “pineapple,” and the recipe was easily veganized by swapping out chicken for tempeh and fish sauce for tamari. I also added some vegetables to the dish to give it a nutrient boost, and served it with a side of sautéed kale, because every meal should contain some greens.
