so, at the bottom you will find my review of the veganomicon hot sauce-glazed tempeh. but first, a few things!
1. so i bought the le creuset 12″ skillet that i’ve wanted for a long time in the cassis, purple color. i think the only other piece that i would buy & really need is the 2 1/4 qt saucier. i would love the 7 qt dutch oven, but really, it’s too big to use all the time, and it’s really pricey. regardless, i added them both to my wishlist. one day!
2. i’m having trouble uploading pix off of my memory card onto my computer, resizing, and uploading without them becoming unusable? i don’t know what i’m doing new or wrong. maybe it’s the memory card getting old? (guess i’ll be back to cameraphoning it!)
3. drove up to darbster tonight to try to eat dinner there, (waterfront vegan dining) only to find that they were closed. thankfully they’re not out of business, just closed on monday & tuesday. turns out sublime is closed monday too. sad. ended up having a feast for under $10 at taco bell, so it didn’t end too badly.
and now on to the recipe!
Veganomicon: Hot Sauce-Glazed Tempeh, pg 129
involves simmering tempeh for 10 minutes and marinating for an hour in wine, hot sauce, olive oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, oregano, and cayenne.
i then cooked them in my new skillet with olive oil over medium heat for about 10 minutes of flipping and marinating.
i would suggest using a hot sauce that you *love* the flavor of. i used tabasco, and it was a little too much of that taste. the cheap cooking wine that i used prolly didn’t help either! hah 😉 it was still good, just too tabasco-y.
will tweak and find a happy place. i served it with the stoplight salad over spinach and dressed with a little more balsamic vinegar.
i had more pix but couldn’t get them up. (see #2!) sorry! i really wanted to show off my new pan!
