Tempeh is a soy product made by controlled fermentation of cooked soybeans. Tempeh is a complete protein food that contains all the essential amino acids and is rich in enzymes. It’s an ideal food for vegetarians.


  • 8 stems asparagus
  • 4 prunes
  • 100g tempeh
  • 8 cherry tomatoes
  • 4 white mushrooms

  • 4 tbs olive oil.


  1. Cut the tempeh into cubes and season with the juice of 1 lime, paprika, shoyu and sesame oil. Marinate for about 20 minutes.
  2. Blanche the asparagus for about 3 minutes, until they’re soft enough to fold for the kebab stick.
  3. Once the tempeh is ready, start making your kebab – follow the picture or create your own.
  4. Place your kebabs on the barbecue or grill for about 20 minutes.
