Tempeh ala Swell Vegan

So for dinner tonight I decided that I needed to do something with haricot verts and yellow wax beans that I didn’t want to go bad. I decided to use up some tempeh and wild rice too. After flipping through some recipes, it was decided that I would try Swell Vegan’s  Savory Baked Tofu recipe but with tempeh instead.

This marinade is delicious – a complex, almost smoky flavor that goes really well with tempeh, in my opinion. If you haven’t already done so, go check out Swell Vegan’s  site and order the zine!
Wild Rice!

The beans were sauteed with a bit of olive oil, garlic, and a splash of balsamic vinegar. The wild rice was cooked in a rice cooker with veggie broth. Overall a delicious meal!

A Swell Kind of Weekend

First, I want to publicly announce my love for A-K from Swell Vegan! I’ll tell you why: I received my much anticipated copy of Swell Vegan’s  zine over the weekend and I quickly got to work on her Sweet Potato Cranberry Scones. If you’ve seen her pictures and you are a fan of scones, then you’ll understand why I was so excited. All I can say is that they definitely don’t disappoint – they are fabulous!

They are made with spelt and brown rice flours so they are good for you too. The texture is fantastic and they are a perfect balance of savory and sweet.

I also scored some fresh green beans at the farmer’s market this weekend so I made her green beans replacing the mandarin oranges with a regular orange:

A perfect summer snack when chilled.
 I also made her mole sauce to roast brussel sprouts with. These should be called Mole Bombs! because man, were they hot! I like heat but I think I didn’t have enough brussel sprouts for the amount of sauce I used – definitely will make again but with more veggies.

Last but not least I made my black bean burgers  for dinner to have with the green beans:

All in all it was a great tasty weekend! I hope these pictures inspire you to head on over to the Swell Vegan  and order your zine today, it’s worth its price in scones!
