Sesame Orange Tempeh over Couscous

I’m still of the belief that if I combine couscous with Asian flavors, it is an Asian ingredient…as long as no one tells the Japanese or the Moroccans about it, I suppose I’m safe.  You may not want to tell the Chinese either, now that I think about it.  I was making a friend’s recipe [...]

TLT!!!!

So….tempeh, lettuce and tomato hasn’t been in my life for awhile…I’m not sure why, since it’s such a classy combination of deliciousness…but we seem to have gone our separate ways, and yesterday I decided it was time for a reunion.  I had sandwiches on the mind, because the Foodbuzz publisher program that I’m a part [...]

Comfort Food Diet

Since with the first week of spring came snow (obviously) I figured I’d try some less salad-inspired dishes from Appetite for Reduction and see how I felt about some warming diet food.  First off was the orange scented broccoli with caulipots…although I didn’t have any OJ or oranges, and used granulated orange and orange blossom [...]

Tamarind BBQ Tempeh and Sweet Potatoes and Ginger Bok Choy and Soba

These were two nights of dinner, and we went 50/50 in terms of success.  Both meals were from Appetite for Reduction which I’m still playing with, and while it hasn’t had any abject failures yet, some things just taste more like diet food than others.  The Ginger Bok Choy Soba was simply lacking…there was nothing [...]

Garlicky Kale with Tahini Sauce and Tempeh Potato Hash

So the other night I decided to try out a VWAV recipe that I’d been eying…the garlicky kale and tahini sauce.  I am absolutely IN LOVE with this tahini sauce, and totally intend to make use of it with my next batch of falafel, but I just wasn’t as excited about the kale.  My kale [...]

Tempeh and Tomato Relish on Bread

Making a sandwich for dinner can often feel like the easy way out, but then again, some sandwiches are AWESOME and you really wouldn’t want anything else for your evening meal.  This ranks up there with the AWESOME sandwiches.  It’s also got plenty of protein with the tempeh, so you won’t walk away feeling unfulfilled. [...]

Sweet Chili glazed Tempeh

So I can’t take any credit for this recipe, if you want it you’ll need to head over to happyveganface and get it.  I’m always on the lookout for awesome new tempeh recipes and that’s exactly how I look for them….I head over to google and enter the search term “awesome tempeh recipe” and see [...]

A Story in Pictures

Lately I’ve been turning to Vegan Brunch for all my meals, some of which have been winners, others not as much.  I’m short on time and not terribly motivated (what can I say?  Humidity does that to me) so this is basically just going to be a list of pictures. First up, these are the [...]

Brenner!

Breakfast for dinner is ALWAYS exciting…and somehow seems to be so much more delicious than breakfast in well…the morning.  I had some leftover tempeh bacon from the BLT, so I figured I should make some “sides” for it. The waffle maker hadn’t been out in awhile, so I went back to the banana waffles from [...]

BLT from scratch…and I mean scratch

I discovered a challenge on the world wide interweb several weeks ago, and I’d been excited about it ever since, waiting with baited breath for my tomato plants to ripen so that I could get going, and make my very own BLT completely from scratch.  I must admit that my tempeh was store-bought, because while [...]
