  • 1

    Cut tempeh in half crosswise. Place in a sauté pan with ¾ cup water. Cover with a lid and steam over medium low heat for 15 mins or until water has evaporated.

    Meanwhile, prepare noodles according to directions on package before rinsing with cold water to bring temperature down.

  • 3

    Place cucumber, carrot, and scallions in a large bowl along with cooked noodles.

  • 4

    Prepare ginger lime sauce by adding all ingredients into a bowl and whisking until well combined. Reserve 1½ tablespoons for later. Add the rest of the sauce to the noodle salad and mix. Place in fridge until ready to eat.

    Once the tempeh is done steaming, add 1 teaspoon of sesame oil and cook the tempeh on each side over medium-low heat for ~5 mins or until golden.

  • 6

    Cut off bottom of bok choy, so you have the long leaves. Once tempeh is done, remove from pan then add the bok choy with ¼ cup of water. Cover and steam for 5 mins until bright green. Drain any remaining liquid.

    Add tempeh back into pan along with 1½ tablespoons of ginger lime sauce. Cook for 2 to 3 mins over medium heat until sauce is absorbed by bok choy and tempeh.
