Coconut &

Black garlic tempeh on smashed broccoli and pan-seared endive!


  • Half head of broccoli

  • Tempeh

  • Endive


Marinade for tempeh

  • Melted coconut oil 

  • Desiccated coconut

  • Coconut aminos 

  • Hot sauce - 3 tablespoons

  • BBQ sauce -  1 tablespoon

  • Black garlic paste - 1 heaped tablespoon for that umami hit! 



  1. Whisk together marinade and coat the slices tempeh. Leave aside for as long as you can.

  2. Whilst the tempeh is soaking up the flavours steam the broccoli and simply smash. I poured a little pure pressed linseed oil at the end and pink himalayan salt.

  3. Halve and pan fry the endive in coconut oil until nice and crispy brown.

  4. Take the slices of tempeh and coat in desiccated coconut. Place a layer of the slices in the air fryer. 180/22min.

  5. Plate up and enjoy these crisp, flavour some nutritious bites! I have added little jewels of pomegranate for a little sweet crunch!
