Recipe by Kozmic Blues
This was made entirely from leftovers I had in the fridge last night. I'm a sucker for NEVER letting anything go bad in the fridge, especially yummy leftover veggies like mushrooms, red peppers, scallion and juicy pineapple! Simmering the tempeh cubes in some tamari or soy sauce gives the cubes a real rich flavor. I might add a drop or two of liquid smoke next time.
- 1 1⁄2-2 cups cooked brown rice
- 1 cup mushroom, chopped
- 1 cup red bell pepper, chopped
- 4 scallions, sliced (some of the green reserved for topping)
- 1 cup pineapple, chopped
- 1 teaspoon canola oil
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 (8 ounce) package tempeh
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- white pepper, to taste
Directions See How It's Made
- Cut the block of tempeh into 1/2 " cubes.
- In a small sauce pan add soy sauce, tempeh cubes and enough water or broth to cover the cubes.
- Simmer for about 10 minutes.
- In the meantime, heat the canola oil over medium heat, add mushrooms, red pepper, and white parts of scallion, and saute until mushrooms shrink a bit.
- Toss in the pineapple and simmered tempeh cubes.
- Finally add cooked riced, sesame oil (to taste) and either add a splash of tamari, or the extra liquid and broth from the simmered tempeh.
- Check for seasoning and add white pepper if desired, top with green parts of scallion and serve.
