Tempe Sub Recipe for the common folk
“I’m a level 5 vegan—I don’t eat anything that casts a shadow.” – Lisa Simpson
Remember dear friends each time I attempt to tell you a recipe remember it's loosely interpreted and can be made anyway, with anything you like, its just for my fun and an idea for you.
This recipe is perfect for the Ovo-vegetarian
1 package of tempe 3 grain
3-4 Organic potatoes*
1 large tomatoes
1 bunch of broccoli
1/2 cup of spinach
1/8 shredded cheese (what ever you have on hand; i keep pizza cheese)
spices. I keep 5 staple spices on hand seasoned salt (or adobo), garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper...
Cut up all your ingredient to diced slices.
-boil the potatoes then mash.
-steam the broccoli and spinach together. chop finely.
In a large saute pan crumble the Tempe so it is finely separated along with onion and spices. Do this on low heat; you just want to warm it up (dry it out). I let this go for about 15 minutes while I do other things. Be cautious not to let it brown or burn.
-whip eggs then add cooled mashed potatoes to the bowl.
Remove or push the tempe mixture to one side of the pan. Add tomatoes to pan, turn up the heat and lightly fry them 1 minute tops... Turn heat back down, add tempe back in.
Now for the final step. Add, broccoli mix, cheese, egg & potatoes mixture to pan. Stir to combine all ingredient. Spread out. Let it cook on low for 5 minutes, then stir and spread back out. Do this routine for 30 minutes or until the "slop" becomes firm and you know the egg is cooked. I'd gather you can toss in the oven to bake like a quiche?
To finish it up I place a piece of cheese on a top & bottom of the sub roll, (the tempe too if it has cooled) in the oven to melt and bake up buns.
