How To: Tempeh

Before I even begin this How-To discussion on tempeh, I want you to make me a promise!  Yes promise me…over the internet…that you will read this whole post before making an “official decision” on tempeh.  It might sound a little funky and strange and maybe a tad bit scary.  But trust me as a serious food lover, I wouldn’t steer you down the path of bland, not so tasty, scary food items.  Come on guys, you know I live to eat!  And like I tell my younger clients – my tasting rule is “you can’t say ‘ew’ or ‘yuck’ before you’ve tried it.”  Or in this case, no ew or...more

Hearty Vegan Kale, Butternut, and Barley Soup from Cafe Johnsonia

Lindsey from Cafe Johnsonia is trying to work out a compromise with her husband on the question of whether or not to eat meat, but she reports that this lovely meatless soup with kale, butternut squash, and barley was one that pleased both of them. All three of the main ingredients in the soup are also high on my personal list of food faves, so I think this sounds like a great soup to recommend this week for Meatless Monday! ...more
