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
