Tempeh Stir-Fry

Tempeh Stir-Fry

Serves 2 to 3
Karen from Dallas made this dish for one of her favorite cooking teachers. "She paid me the compliment a student would hope to receive from their teacher by asking for the recipe." This healthy stir-fry combines tempeh, burdock root and whole grain pasta with colorful vegetables.
  • 1 (8-ounce) package tempeh, cut into bite-size cubes
  • 5 thin slices ginger
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 6 ounces Kamut® pasta spirals, or other whole grain pasta spirals
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1/8 cup peeled, julienned burdock root
  • 2 large carrots, thinly sliced
  • 1 small yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup frozen petite peas or green beans
  • 1/4 cup arame seaweed, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup thinly sliced cabbage
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Tamari to taste

Place tempeh and ginger in a steamer basket. Sprinkle with fennel seeds and steam over boiling water for 20 to 30 minutes. Discard ginger after steaming. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions.

Heat a wok or large skillet over high heat. Add oil and swirl to coat the surface of the wok. Add burdock, carrots and onions and stir-fry for 3 minutes. Add peas, arame and cabbage and stir-fry for another 2 minutes. Stir in curry powder, salt and tamari and cook for 1 minute more, stirring constantly. (If the mixture seems too dry, add a small amount of water from cooking the pasta.)

When pasta and tempeh are cooked, drain and add them to the vegetables in the wok. Stir to combine all ingredients. Taste and adjust seasonings, adding more tamari or salt, if desired. Serve immediately.
