Tempeh Stroganoff

tempeh stroganoff
1 big onion, cut into half moons
1.5 cups butternut pumpkin, roughly chopped
1.5 cups sweet potato, roughly chopped
1 small parsnip, chopped
1 stock cube
1 tablespoon tomato paste or sauce
1 tablespoon tamari

Cook the onion in a little oil, then add the remaining ingredients, bring to a simmer, and leave for 10 minutes. Then add 1.5 cups pasta.

1 clove garlic, chopped
2 cups mushrooms, chopped
1 300g block tempeh, diced
4 tablespoons wholemeal flour
1 tablespoon tamari
1 tablespoon hot english mustard
3/4 cup oat milk

When the other ingredients are simmering, but before the pasta is added, fry the tempeh in a little oil, until golden. Add the mushrooms. When the mushrooms are cooked, sprinkle the flour and mix in, then slowly adding oat milk, like making a roux sauce. Add the tamari and mustard, and keep stirring until thick and bubbly.

When the pasta has been cooking for 5 minutes, add:
3 cups roughly chopped kale
one zucchini, diced

Simmer for another 5 minutes, then add the mushroom mixture, parsley, pepper and vegan buttermilk (made from 1/2 cup oat milk and 1 tablespoon lemon juice).

Choi Sum with Buckwheat Noodles and Tofu

Ingredients (all organic) for one big serve:
around 1 inch of ginger
1 chili
1 clove garlic
2 T apple cider vinegar
2 T tamari
187g firm tofu
1 hungarian hot wax chili
1 onion
1 teaspoon honey or rice syrup
2 T sesame seeds
1/2 bunch choi sum, roughly seperated into stems and leaves
1 carrot, julienned
small handful green beans
100g buckwheat noodles, or other dry pasta

In a mixing bowl combine 1 inch of ginger, 1 chili, and 1 clove of garlic, all finely chopped. Mix in about 2 tablespoons each of apple cider vinegar and tamari.

Chop 1/2 a 375g block of tofu into cubes and mix in the marinade.

Chop 1 onion into half-moons, and 1 hungarian hot wax chili into rings, and scatter through the tofu, gently mixing it all up.

Drizzle with 1 teaspoon honey or rice syrup. Set aside for at least an hour.

Cook noodles according to package directions and set aside (do this either right before, or during stir-frying)

In a large frying pan or wok dry fry sesame seeds until golden. Add 1 teaspoon sunflower oil and the tofu mixture, trying not to add any of the marinade liquid.

Add the choi sum stems, carrot, and green beans and stir fry for 3 minutes or so. Add the choi sum leaves and the rest of the marinade, cook until just wilted.
