Ginger Tempeh Vegetable Stir Fry

Author Leslie Cerier

Yield 4 servings

We love this delicious Stir Fry by Leslie Cerier aka the Organic Gourmet. It's a delightful main dish seasoned with our tasty Miso Master Organic Miso Tamari

Frying tempeh in Red palm oil gives it a rich flavor and meaty texture. You can use coconut oil or sesame oil and swap other seasonal vegetables for infinite tasty variations. In this recipe I used mirin, a sweet rice cooking wine, feel free to use another cooking wine or water. Serve this stir fry on top of rice and with a side of fresh pineapple for a fine meal.


  • 3 tablespoons organic sesame, extra virgin coconut oil or Organic Red Palm Oil
  • 3 tablespoons grated organic ginger
  • 2 tablespoons Miso Master Organic Miso Tamari
  • 1 tablespoon mirin, water or wine
  • 1 cup chopped organic onions
  • 1 cup organic carrots, sliced into match sticks
  • 8 ounce organic soy tempeh, cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 2 cups sliced organic summer squash, in half moons
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped organic bok choy


  1. Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ginger, mirin, and tamari and fry for a minute to blend flavors. Add onions, carrots and tempeh and stir fry for 5 minutes, or until the carrots turn bright orange.
  2. Add the summer squash and continue to stir fry for 3 minutes, or until it turns bright yellow. Turn off the heat and stir in bok choy, which will wilt and turn bright green quickly. Taste and adjust the seasonings; add more tamari for a saltier taste, if you like.

    while I am very familiar with your delicious miso and miso tamari, I have just recently discovered tempeh and have been looking for ways to prepare it – this will be great along with my spring farmers market veggies – thanks!
