June 25, 2013 June 25, 2013/ Morgan

So I was doing something I don’t normally do: cleaning. And look what I found!  A recipe that I just spaced on posting. It’s a super quick and easy meal that you can throw together in minutes.  

And if you love sriracha? Fuggettabouuitt!! This stuff is awesomeeeee! 

You can also use some firm tofu if you like or get crazy and use chickpeas! Hey, it’s your life, I’m not going to tell you that you can’t cook up something YOU will love! 

But seriously, tempeh is the best. I love it! It has such a wonderful taste and texture. And you know who else loves tempeh? My kiddo! (But she loves all sorts of food so she’s awesome. She even loved sriracha! That’s my girl!!!)  

Mmm yeah… you know you want some! Sure, it’s spicy and we love it that way, don’t we?! Get some rice going now because you’re going to want some to eat up with this quicky meal. 

Speaking of rice – you do cook it in huge batches and freeze it right? Tell me you do! Just freeze flat it in ziplocks (in 1-2 cup serving sizes, depending on your household size) It thaws quickly, it tastes great (as long as it’s brown rice!) and it keeps you from running to the nearest pizza joint and ordering up a super big veggie hold the cheese please vegan pizza. 

Alright, enough blabity-blab! Get cooking, kids!  

makes 4 servings

  • 8 oz tempeh
  • 3 Tablespoons low sodium tamari
  • 1/3 cup sriracha  
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 1.5 lbs green beans (frozen or fresh)  

Slice tempeh into 1/4″ strips and steam for 5 minutes over a pot of boiling water. Remove and place in a flat glass casserole. Pour the water, tamari and sriracha over the tempeh and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes. 

Place a large nonstick skillet over high heat and add the tempeh with the marinade. Cook for a 2-3 minutes and then add in the green beans. Cook (while stirring continuously) until the sauce has thickened and the green beans are cooked through. 

Serve over brown rice, quinoa or with some yummy noodles.
