Tempeh Rice Bowl

Updated: Mar 9, 2020

Serves 4

Ingredients 1 teaspoon sesame oil

1/2 cup diced onion

1/2 cup diced carrot

1 tablespoon white miso

1 8-ounce package tempeh1 cup brown rice

1 3/4 cup water

2 cups tightly packed leafy greens, such as baby spinach, Swiss chard and/or arugula

Crushed peanuts, for garnish

Splash of tamari or soy sauce, for serving (optional)

Instructions Set the Instant Pot on the saute function, using the adjust button to increase to more heat. Add the sesame oil, onion, and carrot and saute for about three minutes. Add the miso and continue sauteeing until the miso becomes creamy and mixed well with the vegetables. Add the tempeh, crumbling with your fingers as you remove it from the package. Using a spoon crumble the tempeh while sauteeing. Do this for about 8 minutes. The tempeh should begin to resemble small beans (or meat crumbles). Add the brown rice and water. Turn the saute function off. Cover the Instant Pot, move the steam valve to sealing, press manual (high pressure) and adjust the time to 22 minutes. Allow for a natural release.Remove the lid. Stir in two cups of leafy greens. Prop the lid on the top of the pot, without sealing, for just a few minutes to allow the greens to slightly wilt.Serve in a bowl with crushed peanuts and a splash of tamari or soy sauce (if using).

Notes For a vegetarian version serve with a fried egg on top and meat lovers can add cooked chicken or shrimp.
