Easy Vegan Tempeh and Veggie Stir Fry

stir fry dishes are the BEST, offering a ton of flavors and textures in every bite.

this Easy Vegan Tempeh and Veggie Stir Fry takes it up a notch with its vibrant colors, diverse ingredients, and tantalizing sauce that will leave your tummy happy.

taste & texture:

this vegan stir fry is a blend of savory, sweet, and spicy flavors.

the tender-crisp vegetables, chewy tempeh, and soft rice vermicelli noodles create a combo of textures that keeps every bite interesting.

the sauce, with its creamy richness and hint of heat from sriracha, elevates the dish to new levels of deliciousness.

versatility & substitutions:

one of the beauty of stir fry recipes lies in their versatility.

feel free to swap out the vegetables based on what’s in season or what you have on hand.

broccoli, bell peppers, kale, and sweet potatoes provide a nutritious and colorful base, but you can experiment with mushrooms, snap peas, carrots, or whatever inspires you.

likewise, tofu can be used instead of tempeh, and different types of noodles can be substituted for rice vermicelli.

how to make it:

making this vegan stir fry is a breeze.

simply sauté onion and garlic in avocado oil, then add cubed tempeh and your choice of vegetables.

while the veggies cook, prepare the sauce by mixing together vegan mayo, coconut yogurt, toasted sesame oil, sriracha, liquid aminos, maple syrup, garlic powder, onion powder, and veggie broth.

toss in cooked rice vermicelli noodles and stir in the sauce.

warm everything through and serve hot.

how to store it:

if you happen to have leftovers (although it’s so delicious, that might be a rarity!), store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.

when ready to eat, simply reheat in a skillet or microwave until warmed through.

nutritional benefits:

this vegan stir fry is not only a flavor-packed meal but also a nutritious one.

it’s loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants from the variety of vegetables. tempeh provides a good source of plant-based protein, while rice vermicelli noodles offer a gluten-free alternative to traditional wheat noodles.

plus, the sauce adds a dose of healthy fats from sesame oil and a touch of sweetness from maple syrup.


if you’re a spice enthusiast, feel free to crank up the heat by adding more sriracha to the sauce.

in conclusion, this vegan stir fry is a dish that satisfies both your taste buds and your nutritional needs.

with its customizable ingredients, bold flavors, and easy preparation, it’s sure to become a staple in your recipe repertoire!!

so why wait? gather your ingredients and let’s get cooking :).
