Preparation time: 25 minutes. Cooking time: 15 minutes.



In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch, 1/4 cup water, and soy sauce; set aside. In a nonstick wok or large nonstick skillet, heat corn oil and sesame oil at medium-high heat. Add tempeh and stir-fry for about 5 minutes, or until golden. Add pepper, zucchini, broccoli, and garlic and cook for 5 minutes; stirring frequently (1–2 tablespoons of water can be added if needed to prevent ingredients from sticking to the pan). Mix in corn, green onions, and mushrooms. Whisk cornstarch mixture again and pour over vegetables. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 4–5 minutes, or until vegetables are tender, but still crisp. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes to taste. Serve immediately, either alone or over brown rice.
