Air Fryer Tempeh Recipe
How to cook tempeh in your air fryer. Marinate it in an easy black bean sauce and then air fry it for 12 minutes
COSORI Air Fryer
For the sauce:
black bean paste with garlic
see notes #1
or rice vine vinegar
red chili pepper
adjust to taste
I used avocado oil, but, you can use coconut oil too
see notes #2
For the tempeh
I used Lightlife Tempeh, Original flavor
In one bowl, mix all the ingredients for the sauce
Set aside the sauce for 20 minutes
Cut the tempeh into about 1/4" thick slices, length wise
Place the cut tempeh in a pan or casserole dish
Pour the black bean marinade sauce on the tempeh
Cover the tempeh dish and marinate for 30 minutes. If you can marinate overnight, do that.
Remove the air fryer tray and place the wax paper in the tray.
Very lightly butter the wax paper so that the tempeh doesn't stick to it.
Place the tempeh on the wax paper and place the tray back into the air fryer
Set the air fryer to 320 and air fry it for 12 minutes. If you like it crispy, fry it for 15 minutes
Let it cool for a couple minutes and then, remove the tempeh
Serve immediately or save it for a future recipe.

#1 Feel free to use soy sauce if you don't have coconut aminos
#2 I prefer my stir fry sauce to be a little more on the liquid side. If you prefer a more dense sauce, use less or omit the water.
Marinate the tempeh overnight for best results
Cut the tempeh thinly, so that you can make them crispy in the air fryer.
The wax paper is not necessary, but, I am now in the habit of putting it in my air fryer basket every time. It makes for a stress free cleanup.
Preheating the air fryer is not necessary. I find that it cooks just as well without preheating.
Personally, I prefer my tempeh to be softer not crispier. So, I keep it for a little less time.
To save it for future recipes, wrap the cooked tempeh in wax paper and place it in a zip lock bag. Save it for up to a week.
