Why I Love This Recipe

An easy dish to throw together, yet it has a delightful flavor. Let the broccoli get a little browned which really works with the toasted sesame oil flavor. Susan McGarvey


Ingredients You'll Need

One package (6 ounces) tempeh
4 cups of broccoli -- which is equal to about 2 heads (or two stalks with their florets).
Remaining Ingredients
Non-dairy butter (I like organic Earth Balance)
Natural peanut butter
Organic Tamari (healthy soy sauce)
Toasted sesame oil
Lemon juice
Pure maple syrup
Sea salt


Directions

You'll want to clean your broccoli before using it. So here's how to throw this dish together in a few minutes.


I recommend steaming your tempeh in a small pot with about 1 cup of veggie broth for added flavor. After you steam your tempeh, cube it. A "cube" cut is larger than a "dice" cut (which is, crazily enough, about the size of dice. :)


Next, cut your broccoli up into bite-sized pieces. Place a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Heat 1/4 cup veggie broth (or a swipe of olive oil), add cubed Tempeh and cook for a few minutes until Tempeh starts to brown.


Add more veggie broth (or water) as needed, a little at a time, until the job is done


Next, add broccoli, cover, and heat until bright green and juuuuust tender (5-7 minutes). Be sure the broccoli gets a little browned on the underside which should happen fairly quickly in the medium-high heat of the pan. Browning the broccoli brings out a lot of flavor.


Clear a space in the center of the pan and add the remaining ingredients. There are no measurements here. Just remember you can adjust the flavors as you go along. So start slowly until you get the hang of how much each ingredient brings to the proverbial table


Stir the mixture together, taste. Adjust ingredients as desired. Plate.
