Okay, this is so yummy…. had to make a second batch! I had a craving for General Tao tempeh I just couldn’t shake this week. So, I searched for some recipes, played around with the ingredients, and voila! This is the first time I make black bean-soy tempeh. Boy, is it good! Another batch on the way. 🙂
Grains & beans constitute everyday fare for me, and let me tell you that everyday fare needn’t be dull or boring. By the same token, delicious and exciting dishes needn’t be complicated to make. This dish is so simple to make that it doesn’t require a recipe, but I have one, just in case: Black Bean Stew. Just replace the black beans with pinto beans, or any bean of your choice!
It’s kale season! Last week, I was looking for a way to use up some of the kale I had picked up at Tau and I came up with a super yummy dish, but I made one mistake: I didn’t write down the ingredients! When my folks came over unexpectedly and finished off the lot, I decided to dig through my memory cells and come up with a recipe. And voila, here it is! Actually, with one minor difference; the first time I made it I used cooked chickpeas. For a chickpea version, simply reduce the liquid to 1 cup, reduce cooking time, and add the chickpeas after the kale and sweet potato are cooked.
I love black bean stew! It’s my basic, every day comfort food–the perfect every day far. I will serve it on brown rice, mixed grains, rolled in a tortilla with some shredded cheese or with my favourite, quinoa. This dish is so simple to make that it hardly warrants a recipe. But, since several people have expressed that they don’t know their way around a kitchen, I decided to share this simple recipe.
