kung pao tempeh stir-fry

There’s no need to order take-out when you can cook up this flavor-packed kung pao tempeh stir-fry at home! You’ll love all of the hearty textures in the stir-fry thanks to bell peppers, bok choy, tempeh, scallions, and peanuts.

But when you want a boo punch of plant-based protein, you can make it with a pulse pasta like I did her. That’s red lentil spaghetti you see.
