This combo has the same flavour profile as Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner – covering steamed greens with gravy really makes them feel like a treat! This is the perfect thing to eat if you need some quick energy but don’t want to be weighed down.
Tip: To steam greens – If you have a steamer insert, bring 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 cm) of water to a boil in your saucepan. Add greens to the steamer insert, place over the boiling water, cover with lid, and steam for 3 to 5 minutes or until greens are tender and vibrant green. If you don’t have an insert, place 2 or 3 tbsp (30 to 45 mL) of water in the bottom of a large wok or pan, top with mixed greens, cover with a lid, and cook over high heat until greens are tender. Use tongs or a slotted spoon to remove steamed greens so you don’t add water to your dish.
Yield: 2 1/2 cups (625 ml)
This simple and delicious tempeh marinade lets the natural nutty flavour of tempeh shine through. Marinate the tempeh for an hour or even for up to a couple of days.
You can cook tempeh any number of ways. We grill it at the restaurants, but at home you can cook it under the broiler, in a panini grill, on a barbecue, or in a frying pan with some oil.
