Have all the ingredients prepared before you heat the pan, and
Serves: 3-4; Time: 20 minutes
- 5-6 ounces tempeh
- 3 tablespoons oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice, well cooled or chilled
- 1/2 cup chopped scallion
- 2 teaspoons natural soy sauce
To prepare the tempeh, cut it into pieces each about 1/2-inch by
Soak the pieces briefly in salted water (in a bowl combine 1 teaspoon
sea salt with 1 cup cool water), pat dry, and deep- or pan-fry them
in any light oil until golden.
Drain on paper.
Place a wok or skillet (same one used for tempeh is fine) over
medium heat and add the 3 tablespoons oil.
Add garlic and saute for 15 seconds.
Add the rice and stir-fry for 2 minutes.
Add the scallion, fried tempeh pieces, and the soy sauce, stir-frying
until just heated through.
Serve immediately. Note: If you wish, you may scramble one egg
replacer after sauteing the garlic but before adding the rice.
