I use essentially this recipe with frozen rhubarb. It is a very easy recipe when using frozen rhubarb and has gotten rave reviews from all that have tried it. I did find I needed to bake it a wee bit longer. Delicious.

1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup flour + 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup Earth Balance margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

-Preheat oven to 400°F.
-Mix together rhubarb, white sugar and first 1/4 cup flour. Place in a 13×9-inch baking dish.
-Cut together the remaining flour, EB, brown sugar, oats and cinnamon.
-Sprinkle over rhubarb.
-Bake 40-50 minutes.

Goddess Noodles

6 Jul

I feel like if I use a bunch of packaged things, it’s not really a recipe. But, these were delicious and would be a good weeknight meal or potluck dish.

1 12-16 oz pkg noodles, like fusilli
1 bunch dinosaur kale, cut into ribbons
1 pkg smoky tempeh, crumbled
1 8 oz bottle Annie’s Goddess Dressing

Boil the noodles in salted water per package instructions. When they have about two minutes left, add in the kale to the pot. Drain and toss with the tempeh and dressing. enjoyy.

buffalo tempeh!

5 Feb

these were about my favorite tempehs ever. and for some reason, very un-tempeh-y. Perhaps it is because they were boiled? It’s based off this recipe. I didn’t measure, but this is an approximate guess.

1 (8 oz) pkg tempeh, cut into 18 short strips
1/3 c soy milk
1 tsp yellow mustard (liquid)
1/3 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic granules
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 cup panko bread crumbs

Wing Sauce
3 Tbsp margarine, melted
3 Tbsp Louisiana hot sauce (like Crystal or Frank’s)

-Preheat oven to 400′
-Bring a pot of water to boil, and then add tempeh. Boil the tempeh for 15 minutes, then drain and rinse with cold water.
-In one boil, mix the soymilk and mustard together, then mix in the flour and seasonings (not the bread crumbs) to make the batter. Put the breadcrumbs in another bowl.
-Coat the tempehs with the wet batter, then the breadcrumbs. Put on a greased baking sheet.
-Spray the tops of the tempehs with some cooking oil lightly.
-Bake for 10 minutes, flip, and bake another ten minutes.
-While they are baking, mix the margarine and hot sauce. Toss the tempehs with the wing sauce and serve immediately.
