  • 1 8-ounce (225g) package of tempeh, cubed

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, grated

  • 1 small broccoli crown, cut into florets

  • 1 medium zucchini, sliced

  • 1 medium bell pepper (any color), sliced

  • 1 cup snap peas, trimmed

  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce or tamari (gluten-free soy sauce)

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional, adjust to taste)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions (for garnish)

  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (for garnish)


  1. Prepare the tempeh: Steam the cubed tempeh for 10 minutes to soften it slightly and reduce bitterness. After steaming, pat dry with paper towels.

  2. In a large skillet or wok, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the minced garlic and grated ginger, and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.

  3. Add the steamed tempeh to the skillet and stir-fry for 5-7 minutes until it becomes slightly golden and crispy.

  4. Add the broccoli, zucchini, bell pepper, and snap peas to the skillet. Stir-fry for another 5-7 minutes until the vegetables are tender-crisp.

  5. In a small bowl, mix together the low-sodium soy sauce or tamari, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes (if using).

  6. Pour the sauce over the stir-fry and toss everything together until well-coated. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes to let the flavors meld.

  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  8. Divide the stir-fry into two servings and garnish each with chopped green onions and sesame seeds.
