so this morning i was feeling a bit under the weather. so no coffee for me. i drank some coconut water.. and some regular filtered water…trying to make myself feel better.
so basically i wanted a tempeh scramble. i have everything i needed until i realized DOH! i’m out of daiya. what is a vegan girl to do?!?!?! 😉 so i thought about my favorite “tempeh helper” recipe and decided to make a “cheese” sauce to go with my tempeh scramble. what a fun recipe! now my belly is happy!
- tempeh scramble
- easy breezy cheezy sauce (appetite for reduction cookbook)
one block tempeh (steam before using in recipe! then cut into bite sized chunks)
1/2 yellow onion (diced)
1/2 red bell pepper (seeded & diced)
1 medium tomato (diced)
handful fresh spinach
zucchini & yellow squash (chopped)
gimme lean sausage (crumbled up)
how to make it:
melt the earth balance in a large pan. cook onion until tender. add zucchini, squash & red pepper to the onion and cook for 5-7 minutes or until tender. add tomato, spinach, tempeh & sausage. cook on medium low for about 10 minutes or until everything is cooked to your liking.
in a separate pot, make the easy breezy cheezy sauce. (instead of standard yellow mustard, i used a yellow mustard horseradish concoction that i have!)
on a plate combine the two. and let your taste buds party!
- chick-un noodle soup
so i’ve been feeling like i’m on the verge of getting sick. i can NOT get sick. because then my 87 year old grandmother will get sick and end up in the hospital again. so… i’m doing EVERYTHING i can think of to make myself better. 😀 i took a trip to whole foods (yay a whole five minutes!) and stocked up on organic veggies & also got some vitamins! this is my go to soup when i’m feeling sicky poo.
Stephie’s Chick-Un Noodle Soup
organic carrots – chopped
organic celery – chopped
onion – diced
organic baby bok choy – chopped
ramen noodles (i DO NOT use the seasoning)
veggie boullion cube
earth balance or canola oil
how to make it:
melt earth balance & saute onions in large pot over medium high heat for seven minutes – add chopped carrots and celery & also seasonings. cook for about 7 to 10 minutes. add boullion & 8-10 cups of water (depending on quantity of veggies you are using). add the bok choy and cover. bring soup to a boil. add ramen noodles, seitan, and nutritional yeast. soup is finished when ramen noodles & veggies are tender.
i’m eating my soup as i’m typing up this blog… it makes me feel instantly better.
so hopefully i’ll wake up in the morning feeling 100%!
