at the end of 15 minutes add all of the vegetables to the tempeh and continue steaming for another 10 to 12 minutes.

Whisk together the soymilk, garlic powder, pepper, and nutritional yeast, start heating the Soymilk mixture, and bring to a low boil, then reduce to a simmer.
Once simmering remove the steamed veggies and tempeh from the heat, and add 1 cup of the steaming water into the mixture.
