making TEMPEH tasty....

I mean, WTF IS tempeh anyhow?  A soy item used as a meat replacer for vegetarians, less processed than toadfood, I guess, or processed differently anyway, and with MORE nutrients.
It is an ODD ITEM, but so is toadfood.  And kale.  They are all odd items, but most things are until you get used to them (how did that chicken breast look when you opened the package, hmmm?), and these are all so flippin' HEALTHY it is shocking, and mindblowingly tasty when done right.
--the best way to prepare and eat toadfood or tempeh is to marinate it and bake it then use the pieces on top of a favorite dish, like stir fry or noodles or whatever.
That's it!  Now you know everything!
My favorite oven baked tempeh instructions are click here and for toadfood click here and to see how I put this tempeh-kale pad Thai together click here!

In other news, I wanted to get a picture of my VERY successful sunflowers potted out front, with their friends the cosmos, but I got a BONUS!  A wee and happy bee.....
Have a wonderful Friday!

I adore toadfood! I fry it with onions, sprinkle tamari soy sauce on it and chow down. Once you've got that golden crusty surface, you can throw all kinds of great veggies into the pan and stir-fry lightly. Cast iron frypans work best.

"Toad food!" Haha, I love the name especially because I don't like the product. Steal.
