Streamline your stir-frying process by prepping all ingredients before you start cooking. For a whole-grain base, use brown rice.


  • 1/2 pound Broccolini
  • 6 tablespoons chopped green onions, divided
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 5 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 (8-ounce) package organic tempeh, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 cup diagonally cut snow peas
  • 2 2/3 cups hot cooked long-grain white rice
  • 3 tablespoons chopped unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts


Hands On: 30 Minutes
Total: 30 Minutes

  1. 1. Cook Broccolini in boiling water for 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and plunge Broccolini into ice water; drain. Squeeze dry. Cut into 1-inch pieces.
  2. 2. Combine 3 tablespoons green onions and the next 5 ingredients (through red pepper) in a bowl.
  3. 3. Heat a large, heavy skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add tempeh; stir-fry for 5 minutes or until golden brown on all sides. Remove tempeh from pan; keep warm. Add remaining 2 teaspoons oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add Broccolini and snow peas; stir-fry 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add tempeh and vinegar mixture to pan; bring to a boil. Divide rice evenly among 4 bowls; top with tempeh mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 3 tablespoons green onions and peanuts.
