Cut tempeh into 1/2 inch triangles. (Or whichever shape you prefer. The smaller and thinner the pieces the better as they cook faster.)
Add oil to a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add tempeh and stir fry for 3-4 minutes on one side until golden brown. Flip each piece and cook on the second side until golden brown. Turn off heat and set aside.
Make the peanut sauce by stirring all the sauce ingredients together in a small mixing bowl until smooth sauce forms. Add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time if a thinner sauce is desired.
Assemble wraps by dividing tempeh between 4 wraps, topping with chopped vegetables, peanut sauce, and sriracha.
