Sweet & Sour Chipotle Tempeh w/Sweet Potatoes and other eats.

I'm up way too early this thought I'd get some posting done.

Several days ago, I made a recipe from Eat, Drink, & Be Vegan, by Dreena Burton.  (I found a copy of this recipe online here, but I don't know if they had permissions to post it-and it leaves out the chipotle)At the time, I really needed to find a use for all my sweet potatoes.  This recipe is amazing!  It's the Sweet and Sour Chipotle Tempeh with Sweet Potatoes.  If you have this MUST make this. It's really sweet though, so even though I already cut down on the sugars, I would do it even more next time.  I left out the oil and I used chipotle powder.  I also bought a fresh pineapple to use in it.....and eat the rest :) So good.

Then I made Ani Phyo's Raw Sun Burgers from Ani's Raw Food Kitchen. (And I really want her new book....maybe one of these days!).  I didn't have a dehydrator, so for me, these worked better as a "spread" on my sprouted grain bread.  And, to top it off, I put some raw ranch dressing on top and it was sooooo good! The dressing is from Rawdawg Rory (click on his recipe videos). It's my new favorite thing! I had it on some salad the other day and then on some potatoes HAVE to try it.  The only thing is that it called for a bit too much salt for me, so I'll go light on that next time.  These "raw" people are so creative! If only I could come up with this stuff.

Ok, let's move on to dessert.  Averie always has delicious stuff on her site, and so I made her Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Softserve .  This stuff is unbelievable!

And here's some more Zucchini Spiral pics, with raw marinara:

Ok, I think maybe I'm caught up???


Vacation planning.....which would you pick and why?
Portland, Maine or Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  Thinking of doing a weekend at one or the other sometime this summer.

Eat smart,


  1. Nice pictures of all your eats! How is your spiralizer working for you?

    As far as vacation time, I would go with Maine. I have been wanting to go there ever since my in-laws went. It is gorgeous through pics!

  2. I love the spiralizer. Apparently this last time I used a different cut, by accident....but I liked it! Now I can't remember which one is for the thin noodles, LOL.

  3. Your food looks delicious! They all have different tastes. I like the photo with the marinara.

  4. Go to Maine! The Olive Cafe on Commercial Street and the Pepper Club on Middle Street are great vegan/vegetarian restaurants in Portland.

  5. Maine does look gorgeous...but also quite expensive! Thanks for the suggestions :)
