Vegan Tempeh Tikka Masala

Vegan Tempeh Tikka Masala

This tempeh tikka masala will leave you with all the comfort feels minus all the heavy feels. Make this delicious Indian dinner right in your own home. 

If you’ve been following EBF for a minute, you know that I’m obsessed with tempeh. It’s made from fermented soybeans (fermented foods for the win!) and it’s high in protein, vitamins and minerals.

The flavor of tempeh is often an acquired taste, but I will say it 100% depends on how you make it! My biggest tip is to marinate or pair tempeh with a flavorful, robust sauce. On its own tempeh has a nutty, earthy flavor, but once marinated or cooked in a sauce it takes on the flavors of the dish it’s a part of. This tikka masala is a great example of both! Not only are you marinating the tempeh in advance, but you’re also coating it in a well-rounded sauce with tons of flavor.

Indian and Asian foods seem to be our go-to takeout options, so when I created my own vegan tikka masala we had a little celebration. Now we can enjoy this Indian dish any night we please (and don’t have to wait 45 minutes for delivery!). The longest part of the recipe is when the tempeh is marinating; besides that, this is ready in no time. Make this dish your own by pairing it with sides of your choice and adjusting the spice level to your taste.
I highly recommend serving the dish over cauliflower rice with a few pieces of naan to soak up the delicious sauce. And of course we like things spicy over here, so we added a little sriracha on top. There’s no shame in my hot sauce game. I add it to everything… even salads!
