Vegan Tempeh Stew & Shiitake Mushrooms

tempeh and vegetablesThere’s no better way to enjoy tempeh than in a stew when the weather is blustery.

This stew is great for special occasions or on any cold winter’s day.

All types of tempeh work great; wild rice, quinoa, soy or sesame.


A tempeh stew that’s quite aromatic, fresh spices, juicy tender vegetables and tastes better with time.

I have also tried this recipe in the summertime when the garden is full of fresh vegetables. It is fabulous! Don’t be afraid to be creative!
