  3. Heat up some oil and braise the onion.
  4. Remove the tempeh from the soya sauce, keeping back the soya sauce.

  6. Turn down the heat, add the sugar and the soya sauce, followed by the pepper and the pineapple. Cook everything together until the peppers are al dente.
  7. Douse with 2 dl water, add the diced courgette and leave to simmer for a few minutes.
  8. Mix the cornflour with a dash of water and stir this into the sauce so that it thickens.
  9. Season the stew with Orac Botanico mix
