                         ----------TEMPEH------------
      1/2   c            Water
    2       ts           Salt
      1/2   ts           Coriander, ground
    1                    Garlic clove, minced
    1       pk           Tempeh, cubed
      1/4   c            Cornstarch
                         Oil for deep frying
                         -----Sweet & Sour Sauce-----
    1       tb           Oil
    1                    Onion, chopped
    1 1/4   c            Water
    2 1/2   tb           Honey
    4       ts           Soy sauce
    1       tb           White vinegar
    1       tb           Tahini
      1/2   ts           Grated ginger
    1                    Green onion, sliced
    2       tb           Cornstarch
 
   Mix water*, salt (reduce if you want), coriander &
   garlic in a bowl. Dip tempeh chunks into bowl & then
   coat with cornstarch.  Deep fry in hot oil till golden
   brown.  Drain on paper towels & set aside.
   
   SAUCE: Heat oil in skillet & saute onion for 4 to 5
   minutes.  Add water, honey, soy sauce, vinegar,
   tahini, ginger & green onion. Bring to a boil.
   Dissolve cornstarch in 2 tb water & stir into sauce.
   Stir till thickened. Place tempeh chunks into the
   sauce & cook briefly over low heat till heated
   through.  Serve over rice or pasta. Great hot or cold.
   
   * I usually save the mixture that I've used to dip the
   tempeh chunks & add enough water to make up to 1/2 cup.
