Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 4 small shallots, minced
  • 4 whole habanero peppers
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¾ (8 ounce) package tempeh, diced
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, diced
  • ¼ pound okra, sliced
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 small eggplant, peeled and large diced
  • 1 tablespoon coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Coat the bottom of a skillet with oil and place it over medium heat. Combine shallots, peppers, tomato, and garlic in the skillet and stir until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add tempeh, bell pepper, and okra; stir quickly to combine. Add broth and eggplant; bring to a low boil and cook for about 5 minutes.

Chef's Notes

Omit chili peppers for a non-spicy dish; Eggplant can be replaced with tamarillo, which would be added with the tempeh.
