A combination of two of my favorite foods, peanut butter and tempeh. I snagged a few bites of the tempeh with the peanut sauce before I baked it, and I knew I would love the final product because it was delicious even before putting it into the oven. This recipe is very easy to make,…

In fact, this is definitely…
