​Tempeh Guisado
1 block of tempeh (if not a fan of tempeh, feel free to use some mock meats as a replacement), cut into strips
1/2 onion, finely diced
1/2 green bell pepper, finely diced
1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
1 stalk of celery, finely diced
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp brown sugar or maple syrup (optional)
Juice of one lime
1 tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1 1/2 tsp sazón
1/2 tsp adobo
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp oregano
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp vinegar
3-4 sprigs cilantro, roughly chopped
Optional, but recommended, steam tempeh for 10 minutes to cut bitterness. Remove and allow to cool. Place tempeh in a bowl and add sugar, adobo, sazón, pepper and oregano and top with veggies. Add lime juice and soy sauce. Gently toss together and allow to sit and marinade for 30-45 mins. Heat up a pan to medium heat and add oil. Scoop tempeh out of marinade and add to pan. Carefully sauté and brown both sides. While tempeh is cooking, add tomato paste to remaining marinade and stir together. Add the marinade to the pan with the tempeh and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add vegetable broth and bring mixture to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Allow to cook and simmer on low for 30 minutes. Of pan gets dry add a little water. Once tempeh is cooked, add vinegar and turn off heat. Stir to combine and serve as desired. You can serve this with rice and avocado. So delicious.
