  1. Cook the rice
    Bring water to a boil and stir in the rice and a pinch of salt. Cook according to the packet instructions.
  2. Prepare the tempeh (Optional)
    To remove the bitterness from the tempeh and to open its pores to absorb the flavours of the marinade plunge the tempeh into a small pot of boiling water and simmer gently for 10 minutes.
    If you are in the hurry and like the tempeh taste as is, you can skip this step.
  3. Add the tempeh cubes and cauliflower florets to a medium bowl and toss them with curry powder, ground turmeric and cumin.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the cooking oil, tempeh cubes and cauliflower florets. Sauté for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  5. Next add the minced ginger, garlic and chili powder. Sauté for one more minute, until fragrant.
  6. Add the diced tomatoes and coconut milk and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Once simmering, reduce to a low heat and cook for around 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste and adjust flavors, don’t be shy with seasonings!
  7. Serve on top of rice. Enjoy!
  8. Leftovers keep well in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave.
