  1. I am a vegetarian and really enjoy this dish. I have been making it for several years now. I only make minor adjustments. I usually skip the leeks and shallots and substitute with onions. Leeks and shallots are great, but I don't keep those items on hand, and they make the recipe quite costly. I - Read more ...
  2. Interesting dish. I never use tempeh without seasoning it first. Maybe this could help others. In a bowl I put approx. 2 T. olive oil and about 4-5 T. Bragg's with some seasoning. Use what you like. I used some Goya Adobo and cumin but you could use garlic powder etc. I then crumbled the - Read more ...
  3. Everyone loved it but based on some other reviews I tripled the Tamari and it still could use a little more flavor... I think next time I'll try some more garlic or perhaps some soy sauce.
  4. I thought this recipe would be more of a main dish but it works better as a side dish. It was good just not enough for a full meal on its own. I put some bread crubms and butter on top to give it a more casserole-type crust.
  5. I love tempeh but wasn't really wild about this recipe. It seemed like it was missing half it's flavor maybe!! There are other much better recipes out there!!
  6. We were somewhat disappointed with this recipe. It looked and smelled great but didn't taste great. Without the tempeh it probably would be good. It definitely didn't taste like baked chicken and vegetables. It probably would be better with one of the meat substitutes on the market like the Chiken Breasts from Harvest Direct.
  7. This dish made me realize I just don't like tempeh. HOWEVER I brought it with me to my carnivorous family's Thanksgiving just for me I am the ONLY veggie and at our buffet-style dinner by the time I reached my tempeh it was nearly gone. After dinner all my aunts and uncles remarked what an - Read more ...
  8. Well I've always thought that comparing foods like tempeh and tofu to meat is somewhat insulting for the veggie soy foods. Tempeh shouldn't be enjoyed as a meat substitute but rather on its own merits. With that in mind I think that this was a really yummy dish. It's nothing like chicken or any other - Read more ...
