I use butternut squash soup to add creaminess, color and flavor, but corn or potato leek soup could also be used. Serve over couscous, millet, quinoa or rice.



Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large sauté pan with a cover. Cook onions until softened, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and bell peppers; season with salt and pepper. Cook until slightly softened, about 5 more minutes.

Add soup and coconut milk. Stir in curry paste and sugar. Add potatoes and tempeh and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are soft, stirring occasionally.

Add corn, apples and soy sauce. Cook for an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Garnish with fresh basil. Season with additional salt and pepper, if necessary.


You may substitute tofu for the tempeh.

This looks absolutely amazing! I can't wait to give it a try! (I don't know why I always forget that I LOVE Tempeh)
