Tumis tempe kacang panjang is a wholesome meal made of tempeh and long beans (also known as ‘snake beans’). It’s vegan, delicious, easy to make and pocket-friendly. In Indonesia, the dish is the home cook’s end-of-the-month favourite, especially before payday.

Tempeh is quite versatile and can be paired with all kinds of vegetables. If long beans are not available, you can substitute them with french beans, big green chillies (beware of the heat!), beansprouts, or other vegetables of your choice. Let your imagination run wild and try using different vegetables to widen your options. 

The dish is lightly spiced (with a strong hint of galangal and daun salam, or Indonesian bay leaf). It is savoury and slightly sweet from the kecap manis, or sweet soy sauce. If you are not a fan of sweet dishes, reduce the amount of sweet soy sauce or omit it entirely. Either way, it’s delicious.

Tumis tempe kacang panjang is satisfying by itself. Most Indonesians enjoy it with a plate (or more) of steamed rice.
