Cashew tempeh



The vegan version of cashew chicken made out of tempeh mixed with,sweet onion, snow peas, asparagus and roasted salted cashew nuts.
I created the sauce with ingredients I have on hand, the sweet soy sauce adding sweetness in it, The ABC sweet soy sauce  ( Indonesian kecap manis ) are  one of secret ingredients in my kitchen to replace sugar in any Asian's dishes.
Serve the cashew tempeh dish along with white rice.
