Yesterday I posted Quinoa Jambalaya with Tempeh and today we have a Mexican variation. You can add in extra veggies, tempeh, seitan, tofu, or something yummy from Gardein if you want. Think of this as a base and see where your creativity takes you.

Tempeh Girl – Artisianal Tempeh From Hillsborough , NC

I have always liked tempeh, but never really loved it. It  tastes great in a strong sauce or in a sandwich mixed with other bold flavors. Typically I steam it for about 10 minutes to remove that hint of bitterness than can be off-putting. Last week I posted a Tempeh Stroganoff that was super simple to make and […]

The catalyst for this one was a sad pineapple […]

Ok, you and I know both that these are just mashed potatoes with puréed spinach. I have fancied them up with some Unsweetened So Delicious coconut milk and some smoked salt. But with St. Paddy’s day just around the corner it’s a perfect way to dress up tomorrow’s dinner. (Don’t panic the “beef” in the pic […]
