Balsamic Tempeh Stir-Fry​

  • One eight ounce package tempeh
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion, diced into large pieces
  • 2 cups mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 medium zucchini, cut in chunks
  • 1 large carrot, diced large
  • 1 cup artichoke hearts
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup parsley
  • ½ cup chopped basil
  1. Cut the tempeh into 2 inch cubes and place in a bowl. Add the balsamic vinegar, tamari, garlic, and Italian seasoning.
  2. Marinate for at least 30 minutes. Longer marinating times will produce deeper flavours.
  3. In an 11 inch skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add tempeh, and cook for about 5 to 10 minutes, turning frequently.
  4. Remove tempeh from pan and place into a bowl, set aside.
  5. Add onion and sauté for a few minutes, and then add mushrooms, zucchini, and carrots. Stir-fry until vegetables are just tender.
  6. Then add the artichoke hearts, cherry tomatoes, fresh parsley and basil, and cooked tempeh. Stir-fry for about 2 minutes more to let flavours combine. Serve over brown rice or brown rice pasta.
