Last week, I made a meal with tempeh for the first time!
Thanks to Eats, a local health food store, I found a ton of tempeh varieties that I didn’t even know existed.
I loved it so much in the spicy stirfry I had a few weeks ago that I tried my own spin on it.
The tempeh was chopped into bite size pieces and “browned” in a pan with a little oil. Once it was heated/browned, I took the tempeh out of the pan and added in 2 bags of frozen stirfry mixed veggies and some edamame. While the veggies were cooking, I mixed up a spicy sauce:
- soy sauce
- white vinegar
- brown sugar
- sesame oil
- Sriracha hot sauce
As soon as the veggies were cooked, I added in the sauce and tempeh and let it all cook together until everything was heated through and the sauce thickened up a bit.
It’s perfect served over nutty brown rice. I love the texture of the tempeh – sort of crumbly, but it holds it shape while cooking, which is nice.
I think the sauce recipe can use a little tweaking, so no exact measurements/recipe yet – but I like the heat in it! Sriracha is so good on stirfrys.
As for the Sokenbicha Tea Giveaway!!!
The lucky winners are:
These look awesome and TOTALLY right up my alley! The main reason I look forward to cold weather is so I can sit on the couch and drink hot tea I’m a big fan of Harney and Son’s cinnamon spice, but these look so awesome. I love the bottles!
Since it’s around the holidays, I absolutely love peppermint tea, or mint tea. Drinking peppermint tea reminds me of eating a candy cane!
The Yogi green teas are the best.
