  • 16 ounces tempeh
  • 6 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons white miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4-6 tablespoons water
  • ½ cup onion, diced
  • ½ cup bell pepper, any color, diced
  • ½ cup carrots, diced
  • ½ cup tomato, diced
  • 1 cup packed greens, chopped
  • 2 avocados
  • cilantro, basil, or parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  • Cut the tempeh into quarters and steam for about 5 minutes to remove some of the bitterness. Let the tempeh cool a bit before handling.
  • Mix the nutritional yeast, crushed red pepper, garlic, turmeric, black pepper, paprika, cumin and oregano in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Combine the miso, lemon juice, and 2 teaspoons of water in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Sauté the onion, pepper, and carrots in 2-3 tablespoons of water until softened.
  • Crumble tempeh with clean hands and add to the pan. Stir to combine.
  • Add the seasoning mix and stir until well combined. Cook on low heat for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water at a time, as needed, to keep the seasonings from sticking to the pan.
  • Add the miso mixture and stir to combine. Finally, mix in the tomatoes and greens. Cook until the greens are softened.
  • Serve the dish topped with avocado, herbs, and a fresh squeeze of lemon juice.
