Winner, winner tempeh dinner!

This was sooooo good.  Like I ‘just can’t stop thinking about it and imagining the next time’ good.  Not thoughts I have often about tempeh, but oh MAN did this recipe do it for me.  I wish I could say I’d come up with this, but the stroke of genius goes elsewhere this time.  I [...]

Peanut Tempeh and my Blogiversary

First things first, this is my one year Blogiversary!  In some ways I can’t believe its been a year, and in others it feels like I’ve been doing this forever.  I’m pretty excited to have made it here, and I’m hoping for more years of cooking, blogging, and sharing with all of you.  Sadly, there [...]

Tempeh-Mango Salad Sandwiches and a Peak at my “Garden”

  When I saw the first mangos of the season, I knew I had to make the mango-tempeh salad sandwiches from VwaV.  Biggest lesson?  Don’t buy mangoes until we’re actually INTO the season, they were pretty weak.  One of the two never got ripe, and the one that felt perfect was stringy and somewhat brown [...]

Tempeh Reuben

Since I’m back on 3-11s 4 days a week, I’ve been making myself lunch and eating a conglomeration of fruit and leftovers for dinner while at work. I’m really unhappy with it, but there isn’t much choice, so today, I’m sharing some lunch: I made the tempeh reuben from VwaV with a couple minor changes. [...]

Wakame Soba Noodle Soup and a TLT

I was trying to decide how to stick to one ethnicity/food style for dinner tonight….and somehow we ended up having TLTs (tempeh, lettuce, tomato) and a wakame-soba noodle soup. The soup was a recipe from Vegetarian Planet and it was ok. Just ok. I do like the wakame, which I’m used to from the miso [...]

Cajun Meatloaf with Bourbon Sauce and Sweet N’ Sour Potato Shreds

Vegan Dad went…and he did it again. He made something so totally delicious looking, that I could practically taste it from the picture, and couldn’t think of anything else but consuming it until I’d made my very own. Vegan Dad’s Picture looks way more appetizing than mine, but I can promise I followed his recipe [...]

Tempeh and Onions

This was a simple dish made to round out a meal of leftovers. I also made a pretty sweet salad combining the spicy citrus vinaigrette from V’con with half a papaya that met its fate on the mandolin. Sadly the salad never got as far as pictures, but it looked pretty average anyway, nothing telling [...]

Spicy Tempeh and Wasabi Mashed Potatoes

This was a QUICK comfort meal…one that begin when Jeopardy ended at 7:30 and was served by the time House started at 8. Rachael Ray would’ve been so proud. I don’t know if the average person thinks mashed potatoes when they need to put together meals in a hurry, but then I’m not the average [...]
