Chesapeake Tempeh Cakes!

Chesapeake Tempeh Cakes!    Chesapeake Tempeh Cakes!     Chesapeake Tempeh Cakes! 

Those are the lyrics to a song that Mr. VE&T sings every I tell him I'll make Chesapeake Tempeh Cakes for dinner. This is the recipe from Vegan Brunch, and it so darned good, it's just crazy. We've  been trying to keep our meals pretty low cal - which means lots of soups and salads - but sometimes you just gotta live it up. These guys do take a little work, but it's not a huge project... and the payoff is a crazy delicious dinner full of amazing flavors and textures and spicyness and all-around greatness. So good. Plus, as you can see, I made a whole pound of asparagus to split between the two of us (don't worry, Yummers got some too!).

Bonus: here's a link to an old post - back when Mr. VE&T was still a bit chubby - with real video footage of him doing his special Happy Dance, in honor of Chesapeake Tempeh Cakes

  3. Given that awesome dance from Mr.Vegan Eats + Treats these must be good. Definitely going to make them. I don't have vegan brunch (probably another crime...) but the recipe's luckily on the PPK site :)

  4. We lurrvve us some tempeh cakes at our house, too; even the kid who hates everything will put down a huge plate of them! That said, I have yet to get Mr Elizavegan to get his dance on while I'm making them...looks like that might have to change!
