Servings: 2 people
  • Dash of sesame oil
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1 red onion peeled and sliced (optional)
  • 1 fresh whole chili cut a slice in in so it doesn't burst!
  • 2 carrots peeled and chopped
  • small bunch of brocollini (100g)
  • 1/2 small cauliflower (350g) chopped into florets
  • 1 medium zucchini chopped
  • generous handful of basil leaves
  • 200g tempeh or tofu (press your tofu, it'll taste better!)
  • 1 Tbsp vegan fish sauce
  • pinch of chili flakes (optional - use more or less as desired)
  • 2 - 3 Tbsp mirin
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 - 2 tsp vegan worcestire sauce
  1. Heat the sesame oil in a large fry pan or wok. Add the ginger, whole fresh chili and red onion and stir fry for a few minutes. Then add the harder veggies (broccolini, carrot, cauliflower) and stir fry for 7 - 10 minutes, or until softer. Then add the tempeh or tofu (precook this if you like, but I just add it in at this stage) zucchini, vegan fish sauce, mirin, extra chili flakes, soy sauce and vegan worcestire sauce and stir fry for another 3-4 minutes. Add the fresh basil leaves right at the end and stir through. Now it's time to eat!
  2. Best served with jasmine rice.
