I am not a big fan of tofu so wasn't very excited about tempeh, but now that I have tried it I am hooked! It retains the whole bean so has higher protein and fiber than tofu. It is very firm and holds together while cooking and you can slice it like chicken strips.
Tempeh stir fry:
1 package of tempeh cut into strips
1 small onion chopped
5 green onions chopped
half bell pepper chopped
3 cups brown rice cold
2 carrots chopped
half cup frozen peas cooked
1 cup baby spinach shredded
4 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tomato diced
Put 2 tablespoons of oil in large pan. Add the small chopped onion and bell peppers sauté. Add the tempeh strips and pan sear both sides. Remove from pan when done.
Put 2 tablespoons of oil in pan add the rice, tomatoes and green onions. Stir until the tomatoes and green onions are wilted.
Add all the ingredients and cook until spinach is wilted.
I've found without question that the best way to lead others to a more plant-based diet is by example - to lead with your fork, not your mouth. ~Bernie Wilke
