A meal in one pan and very good. This recipe is from "The Tempeh Cook book". Tempeh is a soy product sometimes combined with wild rice or other grains. There are several different kinds. Tempeh has more texture than tofu, you can actually see the soy beans. For Vegetarians sub Vegetarian Worcestershire sauce for regular and for vegan leave out the honey.

This was the first time I had cooked with Tempeh and I love Japanese food so this recipe caught my eye. I liked the taste/textures of the dish a lot. I substituted white cabbage for cauliflower, left out the celery and used cornflour instead of arrowroot. Although it says a meal in one pan I found I used a few as ingredients had to be cooked in batches. Instructions got a little sketchy towards the end, when to add the broccoli,carrot,cauliflower back to the dish? Overall good flavours and good for you.
