Tempeh, sweet potatoes and vegetables! Low FODMaPs plant-based dish!

  This is really easy! Steam some tempeh in fifteen minutes, boil 1/4 cup sweet potatoes, haricot vertes and red bell pepper until tender, and serve with herbs, tomatoes and bean sprouts!

To spice up the tempeh I added some furikake sprinkles, lime juice and mirin. If you eat oil you can add 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil.
