Sweet Potato and Tempeh Stew

New to tempeh? Try it in this robust, flavorful vegetarian stew. To make the stew vegan, skip the yogurt entirely or use a vegan replacement like cashew cream to keep the rich texture.

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. ginger, grated
  • ½ tsp. cardamom
  • ½ tsp. coriander

  • 3 cups low-sodium vegetable stock
  • 8 oz. tempeh, cubed
  • 1 cup plain, non-fat yogurt, divided
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds, toasted

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large pan. Sauté onion and garlic until onion is translucent.
  2. Add spices and salt and sauté for another minute.
  3. Add sweet potatoes and broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Add tempeh and simmer until tempeh is cooked through and potatoes are tender.
  5. Remove from heat, season to taste, and stir in half of the yogurt.
