I don’t often see a recipe and immediately want to make it, let alone have all the ingredients to do so, but when Kathy Patalsky posted “Kathy’s Special BBQ Tempeh Bowl”, I knew I needed to make it for Lexi. As always, I did not have everything I would need to follow the recipe exactly, but I worked it out, substituting items I did have and things I thought would be good.
That being said, these bowls were fantastic and the first time that Lexi really enjoyed Tempeh. I made some changes (omissions and selective ingredients, we’ll say) that might have been unnecessary, but fit my recent kick for mainly natural flavors.1 Either way, I would make this dish again with a few changes to the process and potentially with the actual ingredients for which the original recipe called.
Based on Kathy’s Special BBQ Tempeh Bowl from the Lunch Box Bunch Blog.
Yield: 3 Medium Servings, Total Time: 45 minutes
The irony does not escape me that I am talking about the natural flavors of a dish that contains a strong “artificial” flavor, namely BBQ sauce, as its base.↩
There is no better reason to not do something
There is no better reason to try
There is no better reason to fight
Against tyranny and strife
Removal is often the goal
Removal is often the challenge
Removal is often not enough
To completely fix what hangs in the balance
But it can bring about great change
But it can bring light
But it can bring great joys
In the darkness of the night
And so I live with friction
And so I live with what is hard
And so I live with what I love
But I stay upon my guard
