  • 2 blocks of tempeh (about 16 oz total)
  • 1 lb asparagus, trimmed

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce (or tamari for gluten-free)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Slice the tempeh into bite-sized cubes.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the coffee, soy sauce, garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper.
  3. Add the tempeh cubes to the bowl and let them marinate for at least 15 minutes.
  4. Set your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) and let it preheat for a few minutes.
  5. In a separate bowl, toss the trimmed asparagus with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  6. Place the marinated tempeh cubes into the air fryer basket in a single layer.
  7. Cook for 10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through to ensure even cooking.
  8. After the tempeh is done, add the asparagus to the air fryer basket.
  9. Cook for another 5-7 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through, until the asparagus is tender and slightly crispy.
  10. Once everything is cooked, combine the tempeh and asparagus in a large serving bowl.
