Stir-Fried Vegetables and Tempeh:

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 ½ cups sliced mushrooms
  • 8 ounces tempeh, cubed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 bunch greens, chopped (i.e., mustard, spinach, or chard)




  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • ¼ cup peanuts, chopped


  1. To make the stir-fried vegetables and tempeh: Heat sesame oil in a large skillet or wok and sauté pepper, mushrooms, tempeh, garlic, ginger, and greens for 8 minutes.
  2. While the vegetables are cooking, make the sauce: Mix together coconut milk, Thai red curry paste, red chili flakes, soy sauce, peanut butter, agave syrup, and lime juice in a bowl until smooth and set aside.
  3. Make the noodles: Bring the water to a boil and add brown rice noodles, cooking according to package directions (about 2 minutes). Do not overcook. Rinse and drain noodles and immediately add to the skillet along with the sauce and chopped greens.
  4. Stir together gently, until heated through and greens are wilted (about 1-2 minutes). Do not overcook.
  5. Garnish with toppings: chopped green onions, cilantro, and peanuts. Serve immediately.
