Sweet Tempeh & Bell Pepper Stir-fry Recipe

It's recipe time!

Tempeh is one of those foods that you either love or hate.  I happen to love it. It's an awesome meat alternative, made from fermented soybeans and then formed into a patty. Tempeh is also a great source of protein and helps to lower cholesterol.

 

Print & share the full recipe at the bottom of this post.

Since tempeh tends to have a bitter taste, I always cut it into thin cubes and steam for about 20 minutes before marinating.

We're using maple syrup, soy sauce and garlic as a simple and flavorful marinade. Marinate the tempeh covered for at least 30 minutes.

You can also save time by steaming and marinating the night before.

Saute onion & red bell pepper on medium-high heat. Then add in tempeh and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Serve with rice or quinoa.

Instead of using rice, I served my stir-fry with a cauliflower "rice" for the first time.  I'll post about that experience later this week.
