Like tofu, tempeh is a soy-based product. It’s made by fermenting cooked soybeans and then forming the mixture into a firm, dense cake. Tikka Masala is a traditional Indian dish made with tandoori chicken, spices and yogurt. I have recreated a vegan version with tempeh.

It can be a meal on its own with salad or you could serve it with rice or naan or even on a sweet potato or cauliflower rice if you are avoiding grains.

You need only 15 minutes and a handful of ingredients to whip up this high protein, vegan weeknight dish.

Good Food For Good Vegan and Whole30 Tikka Masala Tempeh

Served with cauliflower rice, arugula, avocado and lemon.


  1. Tempeh (one pack) – rinsed and cut in cubes
  2. ½ red onion in ¾ inch cubes
  3. 1 Green pepper diced in ¾ inch cubes
  4. 2 tbsp coconut oil
  5. 1 Good Food For Good Tikka Masala Sauce
  6. Salt (optional)



  1. I like my tempeh a bit crispy so I like to crisp it up a bit in a pan with 2tbsp oil. 
  2. Once Tempeh looks crispy add Peppers and onions and sauté till they get some brown marks on high heat. 
  3. Add 1 jar of Good Food For Good Tikka Masala Sauce and 1 cup of water.
  4. Stir the sauce in the pan allow it to bubble on the edges. 
  5. Reduce the heat to medium low and cover the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes.
  6. Serve with cauliflower rice for a delicious low carb keto meal. (I added a bit of salt, lemon and cilantro to my steamed cauliflower rice and it tasted great)


Other Serving Suggestions:

  • If you consume poultry you can replace tempeh with chicken.
  • You could also serve it with Naan, rice, quinoa or couscous.
  • I also added it on top of roasted sweet potato and it was delish!
