Tempeh Stir Fry

I really like to make a lot of stir fries because they are quick to make and a great way to get in lots of vegetables. I like one pot meals that have everything I need to give me energy and keep me satisfied like healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, & protein.

Tempeh is great to use because it is a fermented soy, instead of processed soy. It is a good source has 20-22grams of protein per serving. I buy it at Whole Foods. They have a variety of kinds like garden veggie, flax, original. I've tried them all and like all of them.

I added a little coconut oil and tamari sauce and cooked the Tempeh till it was browned a little and then took it out while I cooked the vegetable.
I add the vegetables that take longer to cook first and the ones the ones that cook quickly last. I started with the leeks.
I always mix it up with what vegetable I add and depends on what I have on hand.
I added Broccoli, Asparagus, Zucchini, Kale, Leeks (like onion), and Carrots

I like to have it over quinoa or brown rice.

To make eating healthy easy when I'm on the go, or don't want to make something.
I like to have dishes already made that I can eat cold or warm up and enjoy.
