Pan-Fried Mung Beans with Tempeh


I wanted to share this recipe that my sister made. It looks really good and I want to try and cook it myself. It looks really easy and quick to make as well. All it involves is pan frying cut up pieces of tempeh in a pan until they are golden on each side. You then set them aside and begin pan frying broccoli, asparagus and mung beans in a pan until the vegetables are slightly tender and the mung beans are cooked through. I would suggest soaking the mung beans first so that they do not involve as much cooking time. The spices used in this are lemon zest and coriander, and then dollops of greek yoghurt are added when served. If you are lactose intolerant like I am or are even just vegan I would suggest to skip the yoghurt entirely or just use plain soy yoghurt because it tastes the same.

Here is my sister’s final result.



This looks so good to me and I am definitely going to try making it for my sister-in-law and her husband. They have both been vegan for over a year now and I think they would really enjoy this.

  1. Wow – this is a fabulous recipe! I ashamed to admit I have only used mung beans to make wraps, but cannot wait to try more dishes using them.
