Teaching the Art of the Stir Fry

Teaching How to Make Stir Fry Tempeh and Vegetables in a cooking class

Demonstrating how to make an Asian stir fry tempeh with vegetables in one of my hands on vegetarian cooking classes. First, melt virgin coconut oil, Next add your spices: grated ginger and chopped garlic. Add and stir in a tablespoon of tamari and mirin (sweet rice cooking wine) or maple syrup along with slices of tempeh. Once the pan dries, add some water for a juicy, flavorful dish. Next add colorful vegetables like carrots, green cabbage, and celery. In my cooking classes, I teach that you can change the combination of seasonal vegetables all year long for infinite varieties of tasty Asian vegetable stir fry dishes. I also offer cooking tips for you to invent your own recipe variations. Once you understand which ingredients go in first, second and third, you can design your own stir fries based on your local harvest. Eat well and have fun.
