This meal was beautiful and delicious. I love using fresh, vibrant, healthy vegetables that are loaded in nutrients.

Stir fry is one of those dinners that I crave. I crave the loads of vegetables, chewy chunks of protein, and whatever bed of rice or noodles it lies on. For this variation, I went away from traditional soy sauce or ginger flavors and used a smokey tomato sauce instead. The result was a warm, rich, and saucy bowl filled with Vitamin C and lots of protein... both great for recovering from a long day or hard workout.

You can easily modify this recipe with whatever protein you have on hand, tofu would work great. Try different mixes of veggies. I found these worked nice with the smokey tomato flavor, but if you don't have access to this type of sauce then simply topping with Liquid Amino Acids or a little sesame oil would work good too. The macros are unbelievable. This is a high protein, low carb dinner with low calories.

Ingredients: 

  • 3 Oz. Tempeh
  • 1 Serving Black Bean Spaghetti (Explore Asia Brand)

  2. Meanwhile, heat a medium frying pan. Chop up the Tempeh, Chard, and Broccoli.
  3. Once pan is medium/high hot, spray with a thin coating of cooking spray. Add in the chopped broccoli and tempeh.
  4. While the noodles cook (7-8 minutes), stir fry the ingredients in the pan until they are a medium brown. Keep adding little amounts of water to help steam the ingredients. Add in Chard when you have about 3 minutes left of cooking the noodles.
