Spicy soy marinated tempeh and veggies

It's really hard NOT to go wrong with this dish. I love to make this dish for friends and family coming over, as it's just really really easy and also really really delicious and as I said...you just can't go wrong;-)

It's also a dish you can choose how you would like to eat it and also depending on your mood. If you feel like eating a lot you can use the rice. But if you feel like having a light dish, use soba noodles instead. Soba noodles are very light and easy to digest. The thing is if you have big eaters around you, make sure you'll have enough..because they might not feel like having enough as the effect of soba noodles is so much different to other grains. Soba noodles are delicious and light, and you are actually full, just make sure that people dining with you listen to their bodies or just serve it with rice;-) What do you need?
