4 serves


  • 1 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 300g firm tofu or tempeh, sliced into rectangles
  • 2 medium heads broccoli, chopped into florets
  • 1 red capsicum, sliced
  • 1 yellow capsicum, sliced
  • 1 large carrot, julienned
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger root, minced
  • 5 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1½ tablespoons sesame oil
  • Sea salt
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • Cooked brown rice, to serve

How to make:

  1. In a large fry pan, heat 1 tablespoon sesame oil over medium high heat. Add tempeh or tofu in a single layer, sprinkle with a few pinches of salt and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side until lightly browned. Remove from the pan.
  2. Add ½ tablespoon sesame oil to the same pan. Add the broccoli and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add ½ cup water and continue to sauté; when the water cooks out (about 1 minute), add ginger, capsicum, carrot, green onion, and another pinch of salt. Sauté until the vegetables are just tender, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Turn off the heat. Add the tofu or tempeh and teriyaki sauce and stir together until everything is coated with sauce. Serve over brown rice and garnish with sesame seeds.
