For the marinade

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the sesame tempeh soba noodles

  • 200 g tempeh
  • 120 g soba noodles (soba noodles are low FODMAP up to 90 g per portion, but they are not gluten-free. If you have to eat gluten-free you can replace the soba noodles by rice noodles).
  • 100 g bean sprouts
  • 150 g bok choy (bok choy is low FODMAP up to 100 g per portion)

  1. One evening before: cut the tempeh into small pieces. Prepare the marinade by putting the ingredients for the marinade together in a bowl. Add the pieces of tempeh and stir until all the tempeh has been covered with the marinade. Cover the bowl with cling film and put the tempeh in the fridge overnight to marinate.
  2. The next day: bring a pan with water to boil.
  3. Cut the bok choy into pieces. Drain the mushrooms and rinse them.
  4. Heat some oil or baking spray in a pan. Add the tempeh and fry for 10-15 minutes on medium heat until the tempeh has browned and got a slightly crunchy crust.
  5. Add the mushrooms, bean sprouts and bok choy and fry for a few minutes. Season with pepper and salt.
  6. In the meantime, boil the soba noodles according to the instructions on the package.
  7. Drain the soba noodles when they are done and stir in a tablespoon of soy sauce.
  8. Put the tempeh and the vegetables on a plate and put the soba noodles on top. Sprinkle some sesame seeds over the soba noodles.
