I’ve recently been trying to eat healthier. One of the great things about working from home is that you have your full kitchen available to you at lunch. Today, I decided to whip together a quick stir-fry salad, something I had never tried before but figured could help me get some vegetables and taste delicious. I was right.
I made up the peanut-ginger-lime sauce on a whim as we didn’t have anything but a garlic-y salad dressing and I really loved the sweet/tart/nutty flavors that emerged. I think the sauce would work great on noodles, too.
Easy Peanut Ginger Lime Sauce
- 1 Tbsp Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
- 1 Tbsp Lime Juice
- 1 Tbsp Peanut Butter (smooth)
- 1 tsp Agave Nectar
- Powdered Ginger to taste
Mix soy sauce, lime juice, peanut butter, and ginger together in small bowl until well blended. Add agave nectar for sweetness, if desired.
Simple Tempeh Stir-Fry Salad with Peanut-Ginger-Lime Sauce
- 1 batch Easy Peanut Ginger Lime Sauce
- 4oz Tempeh, cut into blocks
- 2 tsp Sesame Oil
- 1 cup Green Pepper, chopped (roughly half of a large pepper)
In a medium skillet, warm the sesame oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot, toss in the tempeh and green pepper. Season with a touch of salt and pepper. Stir-fry until the tempeh is golden brown, about 5 minutes. Serve tempeh and green pepper over the salad. Drizzle sauce on top.
