- Bring the water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the tempeh; reduce the heat and simmer until softened, about 5 minutes; drain.
- Heat a large nonstick skillet or wok over high heat until a drop of water sizzles. Swirl in the oil, then add the green beans, sugar snap peas, bell pepper, and jalapeño pepper. Stir-fry until the vegetables are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, mix the broth, peanut butter, soy sauce, and ginger in a small bowl; stir into the vegetables. Add the scallions and cook, stirring constantly, until the vegetables are well coated with the peanut sauce and the scallions are just softened, about 2 minutes. Serve over the rice.
