Thai Tempeh and Vegetables

I have more bok choy from the CSA and have another stir-fry I wanted to try. This one is based on this recipe called for tofu but I used tempeh chips instead (you can buy tempeh and cut it into whatever shape and/or size you want.) I also changed a few ingredients and made up a sauce of soy and Sriracha. This came out so well, that when we finished it, about 2 days later I made more. Yep, it's THAT good!
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoon coriander leaves
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 10 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1/4 cup freshly diced or grated ginger root
  • pinch salt/pepper
  • 2 cups chopped potatoes (I had a sack of baby yellow potatoes)
  • 1 carrot, sliced
  • 1 red daikon radish, sliced
  • 6 cups bok choy (or any type of choy) chopped or sliced
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 8 ounces tempeh chips
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup lite soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup Sriracha
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped

Heat a large non-stick skillet, add oil and spices; cook for a minute. Add onion, garlic, ginger, salt and pepper. Saute for 10 minutes

Add potatoes, carrots, bok choy, coconut milk, tempeh and stock. Bring to a strong simmer. Cover and let cook until the potatoes are done, around 30 minutes

Make a pot of rice, according to the package directions. I used Basamati.

While this cooks make a sauce with the soy sauce, Siracha, lime juice, vinegar and cilantro.

Add this sauce to the rest of the ingredients and give it a good stir.

Taste and adjust seasoning, serve over rice.


  1. Looks like something I should add to my food plan since it has an awesome amount of veggies! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Britney,
      Thanks for stopping by. I love this dish - and it's easy to substitute the veggies you have on hand since there are so many involved. And it's fast enough for a week night. Let me know if you make it.
      Take care,

  2. That does look really good. Thank you for sharing.
