Recipe Ingredients for Sesame-Honey Tempeh & Quinoa Bowl

1 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup quinoa, rinsed
2 cups grated carrots (about 3 large)
2 serving Marukan Rice Viengar Sodium Free Sugar Free
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 serving 365 Organic Soy Sauce 2 tablespoons sesame oil
5 serving Soy Boy Organic 5 Grain Tempeh Low Fat
3 tablespoons honey
3 serving 365 Organic Soy Sauce
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon cornstarch
2 scallions, sliced

Recipe Directions for Sesame-Honey Tempeh & Quinoa Bowl

  1. To prepare quinoa: Bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add quinoa and return to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer, cover and cook until the water is absorbed, 10 to 14 minutes. Uncover and let stand.

  2. To prepare carrot slaw: Meanwhile, combine carrots, rice vinegar, sesame seeds, 1 tablespoon oil and 1 tablespoon soy sauce in a medium bowl. Set aside.

  3. To prepare tempeh: Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add tempeh and cook, stirring frequently, until beginning to brown, 7 to 9 minutes.

  4. Combine honey, 3 tablespoons soy sauce, 2 tablespoons water and cornstarch in a small bowl. Add to the pan and cook, stirring, until the sauce has thickened and coats the tempeh, about 1 minute.

  5. Divide the quinoa among 4 bowls and top each with 1/2 cup carrot slaw and 3/4 cup tempeh mixture. Sprinkle with scallions.

  6. TIPS & NOTES

  7. Tip: To toast sesame seeds, place in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.

  8. Ingredient Note: Look for tempeh near refrigerated tofu in natural-foods stores and many large supermarkets.
