- Juice of 1 lime
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce

- Cut tempeh in small cubes, approximately 1x1 inch. Cut mango in chunks of approximately the same size. Cut the bell-peppers in squares or any other shape that you will.
- Prepare the marinade by chopping the first two ingredients and mixing it with the rest. Marinate the tempeh, mango and peppers for at least 10 minutes.
- Put the tempeh, mango and peppers on the wooden sticks in a random order trying to match colours nicely.
- Heat the oil in a grill pan. When the pan is very hot, arrange the sticks on it. Grill on each side for approximately two minutes. Add more marinade while grilling if necessary.
