•tempeh 8 ounces

•1 cup jasmine (cooked) rice 

•1 cup chopped broccoli

•¼ cup chopped scallions for garnish


•2 cloves garlic finely minced

•1 tbsp. toasted sesame oil

•¼ cup soy sauce

•2 tbsp. maple syrup

•2 tbsp. vegetable broth

•2 tbsp. peanut butter

•juice from 1/2 lime

•1 tbsp. red pepper flakes

Whisk together all of the ingredients for the sauce. 

Cut the tempeh into squares.

Add the tempeh to a bowl and coat with half of the sauce. Let sit for about 15 minutes to marinate. Toss it halfway through to ensure the sauce is coating every side.

While the tempeh is marinating, steam the broccoli and prepare the rice. 

Once the tempeh is finished marinating, heat a medium pan with 1-2 tbsp. of olive oil over low/medium heat and add the tempeh in. 

Let simmer until the sauce starts to darken, then add in half of the other half of the sauce (save the other bit for drizzling on top of the bowls). 

Simmer for about 5 minutes to allow the tempeh to absorb the flavor. Flip halfway to ensure it is evenly cooked. 

Assemble the bowls with a bed of rice and top with the tempeh, broccoli and an extra drizzle of the peanut sauce.
