General Tso's Tempeh & Ginger Cabbage

I love the ingredients in this sauce I created for General Tso's Tempeh this week.  I used dried red pepper, fresh ginger and sesame seeds to create a wonderful flavor. This dish is quick and easy.  The only thing that takes a bit of time is waiting for the brown rice to cook. Serve it with my Perfect Brown Rice & Ginger Cabbage.  I hope you will give this a try.  I think you will love it:)
