  • How to Make Savoury Herbed Tempeh Stew:

    3. Heat half the oil and vegan butter in a large skillet.
    4. Add the tempeh cubes and allow each side to turn golden brown.
    5. Remove from the skillet and reserve.
    6. Add the remaining butter and oil to the skillet.
    7. Add the onions, celery, carrots and potatoes and cook until they begin to soften, for about 2-3 minutes.
    8. Add any of the flour left over from dredging the tempeh and stir in well.
    9. Add the wine and allow it to evaporate, stirring often, until the vegetables take on a lightly golden hue.
    10. Add pepper, salt to taste and 3 cups of water.
    11. Bring to a boil, lower heat, cover, and allow the stew to simmer until the vegetables are almost cooked, for about 20 minutes.
