Creole Tempeh

I came across this recipe for creole shrimp. It was simple and I had all the ingredients so I decided to swap shrimp for tempeh and make this for dinner. It was really flavorful! I added beans which weren't in the original recipe just because I had some that were already cooked. Sorry about the blurry pics, the camera was picking up the steam and I was too hungry to wait for it to cool :)
1 package of tempeh, cubed
3 tsp creole seasoning ( I made my own following a recipe online)
1 green bell pepper,diced
1/2 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3 tomatoes, diced
1 1/2 cups water
Add tempeh and 1 tsp of the seasoning to a pan with oil.

Stir fry for a minute and then remove from pan.

Add onion, bell pepper and garlic to the pan and stir fry for a couple minutes.

Add tomatoes and water. Turn heat to high and simmer until tomatoes are stewed (not sure if that's the right word to use but hopefully that makes sense).

Add tempeh back to dish (and beans if you want) with the remaining 2 tsp of seasoning. Reduce heat to medium and cook until tempeh is warm. Serve over rice. Enjoy!
