Regarding my spam issues, apparently if I use my raspberry.muppet email address, I don’t get sent to spam, but I do with my purplebirdchristin email address. Grrr. I emailed Akismet… here’s to hoping they can fix it quick!
I happened across Susan‘s (from OliePants) recipe for tempeh joes yesterday around lunch time, knowing I had some tempeh to make. I went straight downstairs and got my tempeh crumbled and marinating in some of my dad’s delicious BBQ sauce.
I sliced some mushrooms and chopped some onions, which I sauteed until tender.
I added the tempeh/BBQ sauce mix, let it all get warm, and served it over a bowl of brussels sprouts.
This was delicious, but left my tummy feeling angry. I went and checked my tempeh, and sure enough it had wheat in it. I have cut most wheat out of my diet over the last week and a 1/2 or so doing an experiment (I’ve still been eating a few graham crackers here and there, and for some reason that doesn’t seem to really bother me, so I don’t get it), and I’m curious if that is what made my tummy funky. I have one more block of tempeh left, so I might wait a few days and prepare it differently and see if it still makes my stomach angry.
Anywho. (Or is it anyhoo?)
My only substitutions were veggie broth for the chicken broth, dill for the savory (which was totally awesome, might I add), and I threw in some spinach too because I didn’t have much kale left.
Also, I think I had the heat up a tad bit too high during the broth process, because some of my quinoa still had uncooked centers, but I was so hungry by the time all the broth was “sucked up” that I didn’t even care.
So good. I could eat mushrooms every day. I love the meaty texture!
Sleepy puppies love when I take their picture at night.
Sorry guys. 🙂
Do you like mushrooms?
