a technique question:
can one make pesto without a blender or food processor? if so, tips? many thanks.
Ok, I'm new. Hi. I checked the memories out pretty well, but didn't see anything else about this. I'm not super fond of tempeh, and the spouse HATES it, but I was feeling VwaV tempeh bacon last night, so I made the marinade, sliced up the tempeh, plopped it in there, and then disaster struck. Okay, so maybe it's not as dramatic as all that. Essentially, my tempeh crumbled. I had frozen it and thawed it in the fridge the day of, sliced it up with a good clean sharp chef's knife, but it started falling apart after just 15 minutes in the marinade. When I put it in the frying pan, pretty much anything that was left looking like a strip broke apart. So now I've got tempeh bacon bits. Anyone else have this problem? Did I do something wrong? All the pictures I've ever seen of tempeh bacon look like nice strips...
I am in desperate need of tasty "salad" type recipes for dishes that I can make in advance and pack up for lunches. Preferrabley packed with protein rich ingredients that aren't soy derived (like lentils) and can be served cold. I have to sit all day at work and I am trying to make them as healthy and low fat as possible. It would also be nice to be able to make a big batch so I can work some vegan food into my boyfriends diet. He is veg curious :]
Thnx in advance
