Best Tempeh Marinara Subs Ever

*When I make something up, the measurements are usually approximate.

Tempeh Marinara Subs

1 package of tempeh, sliced into 1/2 inch strips
1/2 to 2/3 jar of marinara sauce
1/2 green pepper, sliced into strips
1/2 onion, sliced
1/2 package of mushrooms, sliced
garlic powder, basil, black pepper to taste
1 tsp olive oil
1 loaf whole wheat ciabatta bread or ciabatta rolls

This would probably be very good with vegan cheese, too.

Makes 3-6 servings, depending on how hungry you are.

*When I make things up, amounts are approximate

Tangy Creamy Cheesy Tahini Salad Dressing

(On this one you can add, subtract, and vary amounts to your liking and it will still be good. I made this up because I've never liked conventional salad dressing and I was getting bored with plain salad)

2 T sesame tahini
2/3 scoop (a little less than 1/4 cup) nutritional yeast
1.5 T soy sauce
1-2 capfuls natural strength lemon juice(optional)
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
dash sesame oil (optional)
1/2 tsp Mrs Dash or other salt free seasoning
fruit/vegetable juice or water

1. Combine all ingredients except juice/water, stir with a fork until blended.
2. Add juice or water to desired consistency.

Juices I've tried that I liked:

Pomegranate
Apple
Carrot
Cranberry

Sweet Zucchini Muffins

Ingredients:

*Olive Oil, .5 cup
*Organic All-Purpose White or Wholemeal Flour, 2 cup
*Flax Seed Meal (ground flax), 3 tbsp

*Cinnamon, ground, 1 tsp
*Baking Soda, .5 tsp
*Baking Powder, 3 tsp

Directions:

Grate your zucchini, then grind your flaxseed unless it comes already ground. Mix the seed meal with a little water to create your "eggs". Now, beat your sugar and oil together, then beat in your flax paste. Stir through the zucchini till well combined. Finally, add your dry ingredients and mix well.
