Marinated tempeh wraps (vegetarian)

Quick and easy recipes from Green Cooks

These marinated tempeh wraps are bursting with flavour and are super easy to make.

Marinate your tempeh well in advance to cut down even further on prep time. Use soy mayo or yoghurt for vegan wraps.

Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 200g plain tempeh
  • 1½ tbsp kecap manis
  • 1½ tbsp tamari
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • Spray olive oil
  • 2 large tortillas
  • 1 tbsp good quality mayonnaise (made with free-range eggs) or natural yoghurt
  • Handful of mixed salad leaves
  • 1 radish, thinly sliced
  • Coriander leaves and lime juice, to serve


Chop tempeh into 3cm fingers. Combine kecap manis, tamari, sesame oil and garlic in a wide, shallow bowl or small zip-lock bag. Add tempeh fingers and mix to coat. Place in the fridge and leave to marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Place a grill pan over a medium heat and spray with olive oil. Place tempeh fingers on the grill and cook until golden brown and charred on all sides. Remove from the pan and add tortillas one at a time, to warm.

Spread mayonnaise or yoghurt onto each tortilla and top with salad leaves and radish. Divide tempeh amongst tortillas, scatter over coriander leaves and add a squeeze of lime juice. Roll up and serve the wraps warm.
