Sweet and Sour Tempeh



This is from the RFD book. The tempeh treatment is amazing. I halved the marinade time after the yin yang tofu incident last week- that worked amazing! then it's broiled- I could've just ate the broiled tempeh plain for dinner, it was that good.

I was excited to make this because of the variety of veg in it; bell peps, cabbage, carrots, corn, onion, etc. All of which are great together and the directions on cooking create a well blended mix of flavors that's not too mushy.

The bulk of the cooking time was spent marinading and chopping, so it wasn't too horribly labor intensive. I halved it and still had enough for at least 4 meals- none of which are for the faint of heart. There's crushed red pepper sauteed into it- and holy-burn-your-soul- it is HOT! Almost to my limit of edible-ility. We'll see if I can handle it tomorrow.

So, in the future, I'd half (or quarter) the crushed red pepper and proceed with the halved recipe. It's really very delicious.
