I finally got the nerve to try the tempeh, so I made Tempeh Bacon from VWaV last night. Here is an open-faced TLT to prove it. We looooved the marinade. The tempeh really does beat tofu, at least in the way of a bacon substitute. But I had a really hard time working with the tempeh--it was really crumbly when I tried to slice it. Does anyone else have that problem?
I'll try tempeh again soon, but I think in my quest for frugality tofu will prove to be a more suitable item. We did really enjoy this sammich, though!
Tonight I made hummus for the first time in a while. I get bored with hummus sometimes, because it never seems to vary that much. Anyway, tonight I made just a basic hummus:
1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
5 cloves garlic
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. tahini
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp. olive oil
Just process everything together in the food processor until creamy.
Hummus is a quick, easy meal, and delightfully refreshing with tons of fresh veggies! Bob and I like to top our hummus with toasted pine nuts, too. This was probably the best hummus I've ever made. And there's plenty left over!
That's all, folks!
