    PREPPING INSTRUCTIONS

    Core and thinly slice bell pepper

    Slice green onion

    Cut carrots into thin matchsticks

    Bring a large pot of water to a boil then turn off

    COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

    Step 1: Prepare tempeh

    Add tempeh to a large bowl, crumbling into small pieces. Add a pinch of pepper and cornstarch. Toss together well and set aside.

    Step 2: Cook veggies

    Heat a drizzle of olive oil in large skillet and add peppers and carrots. Cook until browned and tender, about 5- 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, remove from skillet and place on a plate.

    Step 3: Make Mongolian tempeh

    Heat a drizzle of olive oil in the same skillet you cooked the veggies. Add ginger/garlic/onion blend and cook for 30 seconds. Add ground tempeh and cook until nice and brown, about 10 minutes.

    Step 4: Soak Noodles

    Add noodles to boiled water and soak for 3 – 5 minutes until soft. Drain, rinse with cold water and set aside.

    Step 5: Combine Ingredients

    Add veggies back to tempeh and mix well. Add Mongolian sauce, lower heat and simmer for a couple minutes until sauce is thickened. Add water if desired for a saucier consistency. Add noodles to the skillet and toss everything together.

    Step 6: To serve

    Divide noodle mixture into bowls making sure to scoop up all the sauce, mince and veggies. You can also serve this family style in the skillet for self-service. Top with green onions, sesame seeds and chili paste for some extra heat if desired.
