Hoisin-Braised Tempeh and Chinese Vegetables

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 25 mins

Braising means to brown the ingredients in a little oil, then add a bit of liquid, cover the pot tightly and cook to blend the flavors. This is a delicious dish by itself, or over brown rice or noodles! Adapted from Vegetarian Times.

This was good. We enjoyed all of the veggies. DH said we could have probably gotten away with just 8 oz of tempeh with the same proportion of vegetables. It needed more sauce, and unfortunately the recipe took all of the hoisin I had on had so I dashed with tamari. We served over brown rice.

Tried this out yesterday- cooked rice is veggie stock and doubled the ginger and garlic, but I'm surprised how many people like this- I found it to be rather bland.

Loved this! So yummy and it's my first time eating or cooking with tempeh. Nice! I did add a pack of wild mushrooms and subbed napa cabbage for bok choy. Otherwise made as written. Easy, healthy and fast recipe for a weeknight. THANKS for sharing!
