Tempeh and Mixed Vegetables


Cut the tempeh into small triangles. Pan fry the tempeh, turn until all sides are golden.

Tempeh in Pan

Pick them up with a spatula and place them onto paper towels.

Tempeh on Paper Towels

This is to absorb the excess oil.

Place them into a different pan and add the vegetables on top.

Tempeh and Mixed Vegetables in Pan

Pour in enough water to barely cover the ingredients. Bring to a boil.

Boiling Tempeh and Mixed Vegetables

Simmer until half of the water has evaporated. Add 1 or 2 Tbsps of soy sauce.

On the side melt the kudzu in a very little water. Use the back of a spoon aid in this process of liquefying the kudzu. When the kudzu is completely melted, pour it over the vegetables and stir constantly until all the kudzu has been blended into the meal and gives it creamy appearance. Cook for another minute and serve.

“The macrobiotic way of life recommended by the ancient wise people and practiced widely for physical, mental and spiritual development consists of the following arts; the way of eating, the way of breathing, and the way of daily life. Because a human being is part of his environment, and has evolved through biological development covering more than three billion years on this planet, his physical, mental and spiritual conditions are based upon what he consumes from his natural environment and his food. The way of eating is the most essential factor for his development.”
