Chef's Notes

Sesame oil can be substituted for the coconut oil, if desired. Soy sauce can replace tamari.


  1. I made this according to the recipe except I didn't have tempeh so used an equivalent amount of black eyed peas. Even my teenager really liked it.
  2. Easy and tasty
  3. just finished a bowl. Yum! I added a bit of tahini to the sauce.
  4. It was so good!
  5. We made it slightly different but it was great! I didn't have quinoa I imagine that would give it a nuttier flavor. Since we used rice I added 2 tbsp of peanut butter and chopped nuts on top. I also added some tumeric because I am trying to work more into my diet. Great recipe - Read more ...
