Orange Glazed Tempeh


This recipe is another one from Color Me Vegan.  (I renewed it AGAIN!!)  I really liked the flavor of this one and it came together quickly and was on the table in less that 45 minutes.    I served it with a grain mixture from Trader Joe's and some steamed carrots to give it some extra orange color.

I did some search but did not come up with the recipe.  Let me know if you want me to type it in!

Summer on a Plate

I know, it's still "technically" still Spring, but here in Texas, we have been hitting the mid-nineties (and a few unfortunate souls out in Hill Country have actually seen triple digits already).  This was a perfect meal for a hot, humid evening.  I guess this meal doesn't exactly fit this month's challenge since none of the ingredients have a "color" name, but the result was so colorful that I had to take a picture and share.  My husband was a little skeptical of the Strawberry Roasted Chickpea Salad with Cinnamon Dijon Vinaigrette, but he was pleasantly surprised by the cinnamon vinaigrette.  The kids weren't as adventurous and went with a bottled raspberry vinaigrette.  I served it with oven-roasted corn and ciabatta rolls.
