This are continuation from previous post that I promise you, stir fried tempeh in sweet soy sauce. All time favourite in our family, if I could get tempeh every day here in Spain, this undoubtedly going to be my standard staple in our household but nevertheless this dishes are consider as luxury when I serve it.

Combine with fried glass noodle and coconut rice milk, are splendid pairing, this combination are usually we Indonesian enjoy as breakfast, yep you heard it right breakfast. Indonesian are accustomed with heavy breakfast, me too, that is why for me breakfast are my highlight meal for the day. Should be satisfying and full-filling so I wont sporadically eating random things through out the day.

As for you, this could be an idea for dinner, you could have it with simple sunny side egg and fluffy steam rice. Yummm
