BBQ Tempeh

Matt’s BBQ sauce makes chicken and ribs succulent and sweet, especially when the ribs cooked in the slow cooker…. yummmmm. But as his fiancé (moi) likes to eat vegan 5 days a week, he’s recently gotten creative with it. So here’s Matt’s BBQ sauce recipe with tempeh BBQ Sauce 1 onion 1 garlic clove 1 can of tomato paste 4 tbsp tamari (or soy sauce) 1 1/2 tbsp of Worcester sauce (gluten-free options available) 3 tbsp honey 2 tbsp brown rice syrup (alternately you can use molasses or brown sugar) 1 tbsp chili powder 1 tsp oregano 1 tsp cumin 1/2 tsp…

Vegan vegetable curry

I subscribe to the school of thought that curry can be eaten anytime of the year: cold day, rainy day, hot day – it always seems to fit the occasion.

Nutrition +…
