Hubby Geoff likes to surprise me, and a couple of Saturdays ago he made a vegan dinner for me. Which was so thoughtful since Geoff basically thinks that bacon and ketchup are two of the four food groups. And Jersey Mikes, if it could, would be one as well. Geoff respects that I eat an almost exclusively plant-based diet, so he jumped online and found a couple of recipes for a Tempeh Stir Fry and a Coconut Strawberry Ice Cream. He made a few tweaks to both, and the resulting meal was delicious.
Tempeh is one neat-o product. As plant eaters know, most often the first question that you get from an omnivore is “OMG, where do you get your protein?” (umm….I don’t know, I buy it at Whole Foods???) Tempeh has a ton of protein-about 13 grams per serving. FACT-The average person in this country is NOT protein deficient.
