KUNG PAO TEMPEH WITH MALA CASHEWS (RAW VEGAN FUSION) - I tried out a recipe by my friend Chef Sabrina of @straitsroadkitchen!
Since I still had a bit of raw vegan hoisin sauce (see my previous post), I thought I’d try out this recipe by Sabrina as well. I made 2 portions of the Mala Activated Cashews as I expected to be “stealing” some from my @excaliburdehydrator while waiting for them to dehydrate. Plus it’s something that Mr Jazz Guitarist would love and he’d ask for more.
Plus this was a great chance to use the artisinal naked @mu.soysauce for both the Mala Activated Cashews as well as the Kung Pao tempeh.
I love this dish - do visit her website as Sabrina describes the process and the thinking behind the dish in detail.
TIP: If you’ve just started on your vegan journey, tempeh is a great meat substitute. It’s traditionally made from fermented soybeans but there are also other versions of tempeh made with chickpeas, black beans, lentils and so much more. I teach how to make tempeh from scratch from time to time - and this year I hope to be able to create a course on it so that those of you who are unable to attend my live workshops are still able to learn how to make tempeh! Stay tuned .
