Tofu & Tempeh in Chilli and Golden Syrup

This hot and sweet dish is just plain delicious, and again very high in protein. Serves One.


  • 200g firm tofu
  • 100g tempeh
  • 1 tsp golden syrup
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic paste (or two tps finely choppen garlic)
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp chilli paste
  • a dash of soy sauce
  • a dash of mushroom ketchup (or extra soy sauce)


Squeeze out any excess moisture from the tofu and then slice it to a form that suits your tastes. Slice the tempeh similarly.

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients. The tofu will scramble and lose its form unless you do so very carefully, but you may like your tofu slightly scrambled, so that is not necessarily a bad thing.

Put the bowl in a cool place to allow the flavours to infuse.

Stir-fry the whole shebang with vegetables of your choice, and sprinkle with sesame seeds and nutritional yeast.
