Vegan Sausage

A few months ago, I tried something new: I took a piece of Tempeh and crushed it in my mortar with some herbs to make vegetarian spicy sausage (ไส้กรอก in Thai).
This recipe is rather tropical (Yin) but you can adapt it to your own way, this is just to show  you a new technique, that I have never seen anywhere else. It gives you a very smooth structure, the possibility to mix herbs with your Tempeh, and the possibility to change the shape ;you can make sausages, burgers, tempeh balls etc.. the sky is the limit.
I took 2 green chili, 2 cloves of garlic, a tablespoon of grated ginger, a hand full coriander leaves, a teaspoon of soy sauce , crushed those ingredients in my mortar and then added 120 gr of Tempeh and grind all till very smooth.
I shaped it with my hands into a sausage and baked it for 15 minutes in a frying pan with some sesame oil. Really delicious!
