Veggie and Tempeh Stir Fry with Mae Ploy Sauce

We made a delicious stir fry the other night and it was pretty simple and fast to create! We just chopped up all of the veggies we had in the fridge (broccoli, onion, pepper, hot pepper, fresh homegrown sprouts, fresh Thai basil), fried up some tempeh, and made some rice noodles. I usually will fry the tempeh first in some grapeseed oil until it is browned on the sides, and then I'll add the veggies and the sauce. In this case, we used Mae Ploy, a sweet chili sauce from Thailand. Hopefully you are able to find this at your local grocery store because it is so delicious - just the right amount of sweetness and spiciness (along with the hot peppers we added!).

Once the veggies and tempeh were cooked a bit in the sauce, we put the whole mixture over some rice noodles.  And that's it! It was a satisfying and nutritious meal with loads of vegetables, and it really was not difficult at all to make.
