  1. Heat rice following package directions. (We used Seeds of Change pre-cooked basmati rice, but feel free to cook any type of rice you like.)
  2. Slice tempeh crosswise into 1/4 inch thick pieces*. Heat oil in a large, flat saute pan. Sear the tempeh until golden brown, then set aside. 
  3. To the same skillet, add a bit more oil, then add sliced scallions and shredded carrot/broccoli mix. Saute until just crisp-tender.
  4. Add a generous amount of San-J Teriyaki and the drained water chestnuts, and stir-fry until vegetables are tender. Add tempeh back to the pan and toss to coat. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  5. Serve stir-fry over rice. Optional: Garnish with roasted, chopped peanuts for extra crunch and flavor.

*If you are planning to make this meal and have the extra time, try marinating the tempeh in the San-J Teriyaki sauce for up to 12 hours for even richer flavor, then proceed with recipe as directed.
