Vegan GF Marinated Tempeh Stir Fry served on Soba with Veggies

Hey there! Thanks✨ for visiting Happy Healthy Noms for this week’s Foodie Friday!🍴

This week, I have a delicious👌 and satisfying Stir Fry with savory Marinated Tempeh.

Don’t like Tempeh, or nervous to try it? I promise that you will love💛 Tempeh like this!  

🙇Don’t know what Tempeh is? It’s highprotein and made of fermented soy beans, but it’s less processed than Tofu. Its unique, dense texture makes it a great alternative to meat!

 

Vegan Marinated Tempeh Stir Fry

  • Servings: 1
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

  • 1 Package of Tempeh
  • 1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1 T Rice Vinegar
  • 1/2 T Minced Garlic
  • 1/2 t Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 t Onion Powder
  • 1/2 t Chili Paste
  • A dash of Spicy Sesame Oil 
  • 1 serving of Gluten-free 100% Buckwheat Soba Noodles 

How to make it?

  1. Cut the Tempeh into thin strips, and place in a bowl or dish.
  2. Put all the marinade ingredients over the Tempeh, making sure each strip is coated.
  3. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or longer.
  4. On Medium Heat, cook the Tempeh in a pan. (It won’t need any oil since its coated in the marinade.)
  5. The Tempeh should soften up, and change colors slightly. It won’t cook for too long until you take it off the heat!
  6. Serve on top of Soba Noodles with:
  • Stir Fry Veggies*
  • Cilantro, Green Onions, squeeze of Lime, Chopped Peanuts, and Chopped Cashews.
  • Housin Sauce, Siracha, Rice Vineger, and Soy Sauce.

    Cooking the Veggies*:

    1. Put Frozen or Fresh Stir Fry Veggies in a Pan on Medium Heat, with a dash of Soy Sauce and a teaspoon of Sesame Seeds.
    2. Cook until your veggies are as soft or crisp as you like!

      Vegan Skinny Vanilla Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream Icing

      Hey there! Thanks✨ for visiting Happy Healthy Noms for this week’s Review Thursday.🌟

      This week, I wanted to make a Healthy Vegan Dessert for my Boyfriend❤️, but I was out of Vegan Chocolate Chips, so I couldn’t make my usual desserts!

      Looking around for something yummy, I decided to make my Honey❤️ a simple (and healthy) cupcake that I could put his favorite fruit: Raspberries on top of it! 

      I found Chocolate Covered Katie‘s Skinny Vanilla Cupcakes! They’re Vegan, healthy, and sugarfree. But, best of all they’re: fluffy, moist, and delicious

        

      I Made 6⃣ Choices with the Recipe:

      1⃣~I used Spelt Flour. I ground it up in my Vitamix

      • Why Spelt? It has a low Gluten content, so it’s easier to digest, and it’s a healthy grain to eat!

      2⃣~Fiber boost: Flax Meal instead of an Egg Replacer.

      3⃣~To make it sugarfree I used 6 teaspoons of Truvia Baking Blend.

      4⃣~Instead of Nunatural Stevia Packet, I used Monk Fruit In The Raw.

      • Monk Fruit In The Raw is just the extract taken from a little known Monk Fruit, which is a type of melon. 
      • Best of all: A+ Taste!

      5⃣~For the Yogurt, I used SoDelicious Coconut Yogurt.

      6⃣~I used Coconut Oil.

       Skinny Vanilla Cupcakes Fresh from the Oven!

         Naked Cupcakes waiting for the Icing!


       The Icing
      ? Now, that was an adventure. This was my first attempt at making a Healthy Sugar-free Icing!

      I made a Chocolate Avocado Icing that I thought was good. However, the comments I got were, “Hmm…” (Insert Painfully Long Pause Here) “…Interesting.”
      So, that Icing Recipe is going on the Revision List.

      In the end, I made a Fluffy Vegan Buttecream Icing that everyone loved! (Even though this was not as healthy.)

      I used the Vegan Basic Vanilla Fluffy Buttercream Frosting from Isa Chandra Moscowitz’ and Terry Hope Romero’s book “Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World“. 

      You can find the recipe here! The only thing I changed is that I cut the recipe in half. (The recipe makes a LOT of Icing!)

      If you need to rationalize eating these Cupcakes: I made the Cupcakes Sugar-free, so the Icing sort of cancels out, right?

      I haven’t made Cupcakes in such a long time, so the Icing was a bit on the sloppy side   The prettiest cupcake I made! (And the one that is going to my Honey’s house!)

      The verdict? My boyfriend said, “These are so good!” And the proof? He ate 3⃣ of them! 👍

          Plant-Based Diet and Got Gas? Here’s Your Solution!

          Hey there! Thanks✨ for visiting Happy Healthy Noms for this week’s Tidbit Tuesday!💫

          So, you’re on your 🆕 (or not so 🆕) Vegan  or Vegetarian diet! You’re happy, but here’s the elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about: gas, bloating, and digestive problems!😱

          Don’t be embarrassed, you’re not alone! But more importantly, don’t give up🙏 on your diet because of your new found tummy troubles, because I have the solutions!👌

          I’ve been Vegan🌱 since July 1, 2015, and it’s been for a month now. But, this isn’t my first Vegan rodeo!💁

          I’ve turned to Veganism🌱 several times in the past, the longest time being for 2 years. Yeah, 2 whole years✨! But you’re wondering, why did I stop? Because I had horrible gas, bloating, painful stomach cramps, and well, to put it kindly, digestive problems.😰

          Back then I didn’t know how to fix that, so I just stopped eating Vegan!😐

          Fortunately, now I have 3 solutions to put your Vegan and Vegetarian stomachs to ease!👍

          1. Take a probiotic each and every day

          • The best time to take it is in the morning
          • A probiotic will promote the healthy bacteria in your gut, and help break down your nutrient-dense Vegan food.   

          2.Take a Digestive (or sometimes called Plant) Enzyme with every meal

          • Digestive enzymes will help you digest all of your beans and vegetables. It will therefore help prevent uncomfortable gas and bloating.   

          3. But the biggest solution? Don’t eat FrankenSoy🚫

          • This will include most of your VeganMeats” such as Boca and Morningstar, which typically contain Soy Isolate or Soy Protein Isolate.
          • FrankenSoy containing things like Soy Isolate will irritate your belly, and cause a bulk of your discomfort
          • If you find VeganMeatwithout Soy Isolate, still avoid it! These “meats” are overly processed, so they may still cause tummy troubles. Plus, being overly processed and containing unhealthy additives, they are a poor nutritional choice! After all, health and nutrition is our goal!
          • Also, remember when I said I had horrible digestive problems from my 2 year Vegan Adventure from the past? The biggest culprit was eating too much FrankenSoy‼️ 

            Just to show a few of your Proteins to pick instead❌ of FrankenSoy! 

          The bottom line:

          • 👉Take a Vegan Probiotic in the morning!✔️
          • 👉Take a Digestive (or sometimes called Plant) Enzyme with each and every meal!✔️
          • 👎Don’t eat FrankenSoy❌. 👉Stick with: Beans, Tofu, Tempeh, Veggies, Nuts, and Seeds👍!✔️

          ⭐️These are your new best friends:⭐️

              Vegan GF Copycat Little Debbie Cosmic Chocolate Fudge Brownies

              This week have a stellar⭐️ recipe for fudgy brownies that taste decadent, but actually have a secret healthy ingredient!

              The secret healthy ingredient? Black Beans! No, don’t leave–I swear they are SUPER yummy!

              Chocolate Covered Katie’s Copycat Little Debbie Chocolate Fudge Cosmic🌙Brownies Recipe, but I used her Black Bean Brownies Recipe!   I made 3⃣ Alterations when making these!

              1⃣~I used Cacao Powder rather than Cocoa Powder, for a superfoods boost!

              2⃣~I used Maple Syrup rather than Agave Nectar*

              *Agave is on my out🚫 list as it is basically sugar🍭🚫!

              3⃣~I used the healthier option of: Coconut Oil instead of Vegetable Oil

              4⃣~Instead of the Fudge included in the recipe, I used: her Healthy Chocolate Sauce Recipe**.

              **Scroll down for my alterations!

                Ready for the oven~✨💛👍  Black Bean Brownies fresh from the oven, and ready to be covered in Healthy Chocolate Sauce and sprinkles to make  them Cosmic🌙 Brownies!

              I also made 3⃣ changes to the 🍫Healthy Chocolate Sauce🍫 !

              1⃣~For a superfood boost I used Cacao Powder instead of Cocoa Powder.

              2⃣~I used Vanilla Stevia Drops and no❌Agave Nectar.

              3⃣~I also added a handful of Chocolate🍫 Chips in with the Coconut Oil when melting it.  Almost too pretty to eat, almost!
