Well! Thanks for sticking around and waiting! I’m so proud of this dish! We have had a spectacular time of exploring new vegan dishes!
For questions on where to get that gorgeous handmade headband just comment below and I’ll gladly post where I got it! ✌🏻🌸
Okay, enough of that! Haha! If you’ve ever read previous posts, you know I don’t always stick to the recipe unless it’s extra complicated. I got this recipe from Breast Cancer Maven. She has a lot of other great things on her website as well! I already modified this and it still tasted fabulous!
So this is the star of the dish! Here in Central Florida we have Publix where a lot of organic products are sold, and Target, which is everywhere! They also sell many organic products as well and sell certified vegan products which are very helpful! These three symbols at the bottom of the Tempeh are what I try to always look for. I found this at Publix in the vegan area near the fruits and veggies section. I’ve also seen it at Target in the same area!
-1 or 2 8oz. Packages of organic Tempeh
-General Teo’s Organic pre-made sauce mixture
1/4 cup Corn starch
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1. Steam Tempeh! Cut it into chunks, place in steamer, cover with a lid and steam on medium heat for 10-12 minutes! Definitely no less than 10 and no more than 12.
3. Once Tempeh is finished steaming, take it out of the steamer and cut into smaller, bite size pieces. Don’t worry it cools enough to handle. Then places pieces in coating mix and coat each pieces.
4. Preheat a skillet with 🥑 oil. Or any oil you have on hand. To medium heat. Once heated, add Tempeh pieces and cook thoroughly until golden brown on the outside.
5. Once golden and crispy, to the same pan add about half a cup, maybe a little more depending on how saucy you like it, to the pan. Allow the sauce to thicken (about 3-5 minutes) a syrupy consistency. Once all pieces are coated and sauce is no longer runny, remove from heat and serve.
Yes I’m aware I posted two of the same picture, the one with the flash is to emphasize the color as my kitchen lighting is just terrible in this rented house. In this picture you can also see the sauce mix I used and the brand. It isn’t certified vegan, but it is organic and was more affordable than buying ingredients I won’t use all the time to make the sauce posted in the original link above.
I paired this dish with beautiful wild rice that I also found at Target and it turned out well. Obviously in my original picture I have whole green beans and broccoli that were also steamed to complete the dish.
I hope your dining room (Beauty and the Beast reference) proudly enjoys your new dinner option!
From my kitchen to yours!
