This easy yet impressive dish makes a perfect appetizer for a party—though it’s equally good with rice and a steamed vegetable for a healthy, simple dinner. I sometimes switch the tempeh out for traditional chicken tenders, beef or even salmon.


  • 1 10-oz package tempeh $4
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil Pantry
  • 4 cups spinach or mixed greens $2
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter Pantry
  • 1/8 cup coconut milk $1.50
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce Pantry
  • 1" piece ginger, minced $1
  • 2 tsp honey Pantry
  • 1 garlic clove, minced Pantry
  • 1 lime, juiced $0.50
  • 1 tsp chili powder $1.50 for 1 oz.
  • 1 small bunch cilantro, chopped $1


  1. If using bamboo skewers and a gas or charcoal grill, soak skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Cut tempeh into 12 3" strips, about 3/4" wide. Push onto the tips of the skewers. Sprinkle the tempeh strips lightly with chili powder.
  3. Heat a grill or grill pan over medium high heat. If using a grill pan, brush with the vegetable oil. Grill the tempeh for 2-3 minutes on each side or until lightly crisp with grill marks.
  4. While the tempeh grills, whisk together the peanut butter, coconut milk, soy sauce, ginger, honey, garlic and lime.
  5. Serve the satay sticks atop a mound of greens with peanut sauce on the side for dipping. Garnish generously with cilantro. Makes 12 satay sticks.
