Author Notes: I came across these beautiful organic Trumpet Mushrooms and I couldn't resist buying it. I never really cook anything with these kind of mushrooms so before they spoiled in my fridge I decided to diced it and add it to the Tempeh curry. It surprisely added a lot of flavor and texture to an already warmed and hearty dish. Cheers!Dominique Fry

Just made this for dinner. Is there some spice that was used that was not mentioned in the recipe instructions. The images look very yellow whereas my result came out brown/beige. Overall not bad, but not great either; kind of blah.

Sorry the dish was just blah. I make it for my family often and we really enjoy it. It's the only way to get hubby to eat tempeh. Did you use red Thai curry paste? I only use Thai Kitchen brand. Maybe that explains the color difference. 2 tbsp of red curry paste should be enough to make 1 can of coconut cream/milk bright yellow/orange. Thanks for trying the recipe anyway! Cheers!

I can't wait to try this. Do you think it would be worth it if I brown the tempeh first?

Love your Brazilian influences, too. It took a while before I got comments and it seems that some recipes get overlooked with so many entries...but the editors have a way of picking up on things just when you least expect it!

This looks scrumptious.
