What I Eat In a Day Vegan

Hey loves, stopping by with another What I Eat In A Day on the blog today.

Since I have been eating plant-based/vegan meals for over three years, I started a series on the blog, What I Eat In A Day to share plant-based/vegan meal ideas.

If you are looking for some new plant-based/vegan meal ideas or you want to take a break from meat sometimes, this series is for you.

Okay, let’s get to it.

If you have been following this series on the blog, you already know that it is a must to start my morning with lemon water. I prepare it the night before with my hydro flask. My 32 oz. hydro flask joins me every night on my nightstand.

It helps me to drink 32 ounces of water in the morning. Yay!!

Throughout the day, sipping on a tea of my choice is one of my daily joys.

For a list of my breakfast ideas, click here (which starts late)

Have you heard of quinoa? I am sure you have. What about quinoa for breakfast? Hmmm.  Well, breakfast includes quinoa. When I tell ya, it was delicious. It was delicious!

Stir-fry Tempeh & Veggies with Brown Rice

Meatless Meal Idea

Stir-Fry Tempeh with Veggies & Brown Rice

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

Ingredients

 2 slices crumbled Tempeh

1/3 cup chopped red Bell Pepper

1/3 cup chopped orange Bell Pepper

1 handful Broccoli

1/3 cup chopped onion

6 Baby Corn

1 cup cooked brown Rice

1/2 cup Vegetable Broth

Everything But the Bagel Sesame Seasoning to taste

2 chopped garlic cloves

Black Peppercorn to taste

Coconut Aminos to taste

healthy alternative to soy sauce

Tip: Coconut Aminos is a healthy alternative for soy sauce

First, I cut up tempeh and put it in a small pot with vegetable broth. I let it cooked for about 30 minutes. This helps get the bitterness out of it. Then, it will take on the flavor you season it with better.

During the last 15 minutes of the tempeh cooking, I washed & cut up the veggies and garlic. I put them in a saucepan with vegetable broth, a splash of coconut aminos, and seasonings (Everything But the Bagel Sesame Seasoning & Black Peppercorn).

 

After the tempeh is finished, I crumbled it up and add it to the saucepan with the veggies, vegetable broth, coconut aminos, and seasonings.  It will take on the all the flavor created in the saucepan.

Brown rice is already cooked because I keep some in the refrigerator.  1 heated up the brown rice. Next, I dress the plate with all the ingredients prepared.

Viola, dinner is served.

As always, feel free to adjust ingredients to your liking. I look at recipes as a starting point or for inspiration.  You can omit and add whatever you like. We all have different taste buds. 

Until next time
