I bet you were wondering when I was going to get around to tempeh, weren't you? Well, here it is! I used the Tempeh Bacon recipe from Vegan With a Vengeance. Of course, it would make a fantastic "BLT" on wholegrain bread with Vegenaise, lettuce, and tomato, but shmoo wanted just the tempeh. I also made my own vegan fruit jell using Bryanna's recipe posted in the comments last Friday. It worked like a dream! I used cran-raspberry 100% juice and floated frozen organic raspberries in the jel. In the veggies department today we have steamed diced kohlrabi and peas.
Verdict: I always know I have a winner when shmoo begs to eat his lunch for breakfast! The tempeh was a big hit; we all loved the smoky flavor. Shmoo also liked the veggies, but thought the jell was tart. I agree, but we all liked it once we had gotten over our super-sweet jello expectations. Next time I'll probably add some sweetener or use a sweeter fruit. 4 stars.
