|1 cup||Brown rice, medium-grain, cooked (for serving, prepare as directed on package)|
|2 stalk(s)||Green onion, scallion, ramp (chopped, for serving)|
|1 tbsp||Sesame seeds (for serving)|
|1/2 cup||Cashew nuts, roasted|
|3 clove(s)||Garlic (minced)|
|1 1/2 tsp minced||Ginger root|
|3 tbsp||Hoisin sauce, ready-to-serve|
|1 1/2 tbsp||Soy sauce|
|1 1/2 tbsp||Maple syrup|
|1 1/2 tbsp||Rice vinegar|
|1 medium pepper(s)||Red bell pepper (cut into chunks)|
|227 gm||Tempeh (tempe) (cut into 1/2-inch cubes)|
|2 tbsp||Vegetable oil (divided)|
|1/4 tsp||White pepper|
Steam the tempeh (optional)
1. Stir hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic, ginger and white pepper together in a small bowl.
2. Coat the bottom of a large skillet with 1 tablespoon of oil and place over medium heat. Add tempeh cubes in a single layer. Cook about 10 minutes, flipping once or twice, until browned on multiple sides. Remove tempeh from skillet and transfer to a plate.
3. Coat skillet with remaining tablespoon of oil and raise heat to high. Add bell pepper and stir-fry until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes. Return tempeh to skillet and add hoisin sauce mixture and cashews. Flip a few times to coat everything and cook just until ingredients are heated throughout, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
4. Divide rice among plates or bowls. Top with stir-fried tempeh and sprinkle with sesame seeds and scallions.
