Fried Rice with Marinated Tempeh and Peanut Sauce

high-protein recipe

By: Anne-Sophie Hoffman
After a tough workout, we love to sink into a bowl of fried rice that’s loaded with vegetables. But the highlight of the dish is the crispy, high-protein skewer of marinated tempeh. A few spoonfuls of peanut sauce on top and you’ve got the perfect meal: done in a flash, and a perfect way to reload tired post-workout muscles.


  • Ingredients:
    85 g tempeh, 1 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tsp peanut oil
    Cube the tempeh. Put the soy sauce and peanut oil into a bowl and stir well. Add the tempeh and marinate for at least 10 minutes.
  • Ingredients:
    1 tbsp Peanut Butter, 0.5 tbsp lime juice, 1 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tsp agave nectar, 1 tbsp water
    Put all the ingredients for the peanut sauce into a different bowl and mix well.
  • Heat a pan to medium-high. Saute the tempeh cubes for 2 minutes on each side until crispy.
  • Ingredients:
    While the tempeh is cooking, prepare the Post Workout Rice according to the package instructions.
  • Serve the fried rice with the tempeh and peanut sauce.
  • Enjoy!
