I had a vague idea about what I wanted to do with this but it didn't really come together until I was in the middle of making it. I took the lazy route and just tossed some chopped tempeh, sweet potatoes and red kale all together in a pot, covered with water and simmered until the sweet potatoes were tender. Then I drained all that stuff and cooked some diced onion in peanut oil in the same pot, then added minced ginger and garlic, and finally the cooked tempeh, sweet potatoes and kale. I tossed that all around a bit then added a sauce I made from peanut butter, lemon juice, soy sauce, agave and coriander. We had this concoction with brown rice on tortillas and it was quite satisfying. There's something I like about mixing sweet potatoes with tempeh and I figure you can't go wrong with a peanut sauce.
