Tempeh Veggie Scramble. Vegan. GF.


Smilling Hara Tempeh veggie scramble.  

Not all tempeh’s are created equal… trust me, I feel like I’ve personally sampled every single one on the market.  I was contacted by the awesome folks at Smiling Hara several years ago and I’ve never found or eaten another tempeh that rivals their products.  Seriously.

So a little bit of tempeh product knowledge: Originated in Indonesia.  Tempeh is made from a process of culturing beans.  Result is a highly digestible and nutrient dense plant based protein.  Organic soy.  Gluten free.  Vegan. 

My good friend reached out to me a few weeks ago asking if I wanted to try out their new flavor combinations and I jumped at the chance.  Raspberry habanero, miso ginger and smoked salt/pepper have all captured my tastebuds.  The day they arrived I made this scramble and I’ve been waiting to share it with you all (taking pics/blogging the recipe does take time after all).  Finally!  Today, post long run, I was committed to getting this recipe up on the blog to share with you guys.  PLUS, Smiling Hara is also wanting to share the love with you all and is giving me 3 boxes to share with one lucky friend of Knead to Cook!  Ahhhh!

To enter the giveway on my blog: 

Please leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite way to cook tempeh or what flavor combination you are the most excited to try.

One random U. S. resident will receive 3 boxes (miso ginger, raspberry habanero and smoked salt and pepper) – all 8 ounces shipped right to your door.

That’s all you have to do.  Giveaway will run from 11/10/16 through Sunday, 11/13/16. I’ll be hosting tons of fun giveaways through the end of the year so stay tuned.

Now onto this awesomely easy, protein-packed and oh so healthy recipe…


1 box of Smiling Hara tempeh (any flavor you wish), cubed
1 bell pepper, any color, washed and diced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/3 cup of shredded carrots
1 jalapeno, diced (optional)
2 tablespoons of liquid aminos or coconut aminos
1 teaspoon of ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon of smoked chili powder
Coconut oil


Prep all of your veggies by washing and cutting up.  Into a fry or sauté pan, add about a tablespoon of coconut oil and allow that to melt over a medium flame.  Once hot, add the peppers, garlic, jalapeño and carrots. Sauté for about 2-3 minutes, stirring often so the garlic doesn’t burn.

While the veggies are cooking, cube up the tempeh and add that your sauté pan.  Follow that by your spices and aminos.  Stir frequently to heat thoroughly.  Cook for about 4-6 minutes.  In the meantime, over an open flame carefully toast up your tortillas.  Once warmed through and a bit charred, place one tortilla on each plate.  Then add your tempeh scramble on top.  I topped with fresh cilantro leaves – if you wish or have them on hand.  This scramble keeps perfectly in the fridge all week for a great make-ahead weekend recipe.  Enjoy!

  1. I am dying to try the Raspberry Habenero, it sounds AMAZING!! It sounds easier to cook too. Right now I have to steam tempeh first and then sautee it until warm. I’m excited to try a nice flavored tempeh❤ Your recipe sounds really awesome too❤

  2. I’ll be honest and admit I’ve never actually cooked tempeh myself! I’ve only had it when it was served for me. I always enjoy it though and would seriously love to try this product and introduce more plant based products into my diet. They all sound good, but miso ginger sounds extra fabulous to me.

    I’m so happy you were able to accomplish your longest run, post-surgery. I am also recovering from an injury (femoral shaft stress fracture) and I understand the anxiety of worrying it (or other injuries) will come back. Just keep training smart and fueling right- your body is strong!!

    1. Aww Jessica, Thank you for such a lovely comment. I’m focused on training big time. Best of luck to you. This tempeh is fabulous and just heat and serve. The best! Good luck to you. oxo

  3. I have had tempeh but love to make a nice crispy tofu in the oven. Maybe tempeh would work the same? The miso ginger sounds great!

  4. I have never tried this, but it looks tge same consistency of tofu. Am eager to try new things in the kitchen ALWAYS.
    So happy for you to have completed such high mileage outdoors, prayers will continue for your recovery.
