Directions

  1. To a shallow dish, add soy sauce, maple syrup and sriracha together. Mix to combine.
  2. Slice the tempeh into 2 mm thick slices, or as thin as you can slice it, and place in the shallow dish and mix to coat. Let marinate for at least 20 minutes. Mix once or twice while it's marinating to re-coat.
  3. Using a box grater, or the shredding disc of a food processor, shred the potatoes and place them into a large bowl filled with cold water. Let soak for 5 minutes to reduce the starchiness of the potatoes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C).
  5. Grate the onion and carrot into a bowl. Add the oil, flour, garlic powder, cumin powder, salt, and ground pepper.
  6. Drain the potatoes, place them on a clean dry cloth or a nut-milk bag and squeeze to get rid of excess water. Add to the onion and carrot mix and stir to combine.
  7. Use a ½ cup measure to scoop the potato mixture into flat, ½ cm thick cakes on a parchment-lined baking tray.
  8. On another parchment-lined tray, arrange the tempeh in a single layer and reserve any leftover marinade for now.
  9. Bake both trays in the oven for 10 minutes, and then stop to flip both the tempeh and the potato cakes. Use any leftover marinade to drizzle on the second side of the tempeh at this stage, then bake for another 10 - 15 minutes, or until the edges are golden and crispy.
  10. Heat a medium pan on medium-high heat with oil. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook until the skins start to pop, which takes about 2 minutes.
  11. Then add the crushed garlic and cook until fragrant and golden, about 3 - 4 minutes.
  12. Remove the tomatoes and garlic from the pan, return the pan to the heat and add the spinach. Stir often, and remove from the heat once fully wilted.
  13. To serve, use a potato cake as the base, top with a few slices of baked tempeh, then the cooked spinach and blistered tomatoes. Add avocado slices, sea salt, and a drizzle of hot sauce if desired.

Notes

  • * This amount can easily be doubled if you'd like more veggies, as the veggies do reduce significantly in volume once cooked.

Storage

  • Best if this is enjoyed immediately.
  • Store each component separately in its own airtight container for up to 3 days.

Hi Sadia, trying out your recipes recently - loving them so far!
Where can I get that food processor from?

PUL Team - Dec. 21, 2021, 3:32 a.m.

Hi there, Shaz, so glad you're enjoying the recipes! The food processor shown in the pictures is our Magimix. If you haven't already seen it yet, you can find more information with clickable links in our kitchen essentials article here: pickuplimes.com/article/kitch… . They also may have it at local grocery or kitchen supply stores. We hope this helps for now 🙂

We love, love, love making these for Sunday brunch; they‘re an absolute favorite. We do get a little bit quicker every time and the several separate elements allow prepping them together which helps speed things up as well. That said I‘d totally make them by myself or just for myself as well. They really are that good.

PUL Team - Nov. 29, 2021, 12:07 a.m.

We appreciate this so much, Julia! Thanks for sharing the insight and kind words 🤗

Delicious recipe! However, this was certainly quite exhausing and time consuming to make, so it will probably serve best as a breakfast for a special occasion!

PUL Team - Sept. 18, 2021, 8:46 p.m.

Thank you for sharing, Clare, this one is wonderful for special occasions indeed. We find it gets a bit faster with familiarity as well 🙂

Despite that each component of this dish requires time and a steady hand, it’s certainly worth it😋. This is an exclusive breakfast or brunch, which is packed with delicious flavours. It was exciting to cook with tempeh for the first time, and I liked how it absorbs the marinade. I love the marinade, as it provided a wonderful “bacon” taste once fried in the oven. In the future, I won’t however use it to glaze the tempeh as the sugar got burnt (NB no overheated oven). Fine balance with the warm tomatoes and moist spinach! I think this might be my new favourite savoury breakfast of PUL🤩 It’s a close tie between this and the tofu scramble😂

Hi Louise! It's a labour of love indeed, although we're so thrilled it was worth it 😃 Happy cooking 🤗

I actually made this for my mom for Mother's Day! It takes a bit of practice, be aware that they will not look as pretty, but they taste absolutely delicious! Try to use a pan that evenly cooks, so with a thicker bottom, and make it as even and round as possible! Delicious.

So glad a PUL recipe was enjoyed on the special occasion, Maria! We've found we get better at displaying this one the more we practice. Pictures are generally enhanced though as well 🤗
