1 PAN DISH - creamy coconut tempeh stew - complete protein!!

I am a HUGE fan of 1 pot dishes.....cooking a meal from scratch could not be easier! Tempeh is a great source of protein and really easy to work with. It has a strong flavour so can stand up to other strong flavours such as tamari or spices, as in this dish.


1/2 block tempeh, cut into small cubes

1 medium-sized sweet potato, cut into cubes, no need to peel

1 large onion, sliced

2-3 garlic, sliced

1T coconut cream

1T peanut butter

1T stock powder

1t coriander seeds

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

A dash of cayenne pepper

Salt, to taste

Add all of the ingredients to your pan

Pour in enough water so the ingredients are just covered

Bring to the boil on a high heat then reduce to a simmer

Add a little hot water if the pan dries out too much (I keep a full kettle on stand by for dishes like this)

Cook for around 30-40 minutes until the rice is cooked through

Serve....it's that simple!!!

Top with seeds if you wish, I used a lovely combination of pumpkin seeds, buckwheat, sunflower seeds and pine nuts.
