  • Total Time: 30 minutes



7 oz. (200g) tempeh, cut into cubes

1 tbsp. olive oil

1 tbsp. ginger, grated

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 tbsp. sesame oil

1 tbsp. rice wine vinegar

3 tbsp. tamari (or soy sauce)

1/2 broccoli head, florets

1 bell pepper, sliced

1 tbsp. sesame seeds, to garnish

spring onion or chives, to garnish

  • Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat and cook the tempeh for about 6 minutes, occasionally stirring until browned on each side.
  • In the meantime, prepare the sauce by mixing ginger, garlic, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, and maple syrup in a bowl.
  • Add half the sauce to the pan with the tempeh, mix until coated, then remove it from the pan and set it aside.
  • Add the carrots, broccoli and pepper, and remaining sauce to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes, or until veggies are tender.
  • Next, add in the tempeh and cook for another 3-5 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked through.
