Vegan MoFo: Brought To You By House of Herbs

MAN I am tired today. Yesterday was a long day in shitty, chilly weather. I wanted to make something quick and easy. Luckily, we had HOUSE OF HERBS cooking wine on hand! It's like the Hamburger Helper of cooking wines!

First, I marinated some tempeh to bake in the oven at 400. I wasn't sure if these guys would end up in a stir-fry or what, but there was gonna be some tempeh involved. I used equal parts soy sauce, the homemade veggie broth from last week still going strong, and HOUSE OF HERBS cooking wine. (Can I say that you can totally taste the difference with the homemade broth?)

I knew we had broccoli from the market -- maybe a stir-fry? With spelt soba? Oops! Half the spelt soba is gone. Fuck. Oooh -- we have Israeli Couscous... make that would be good? Tossed with broccoli and tempeh? Okay, let's cook that up. I sauteed some garlic in olive oil, toasted 1 cup of couscous, and then cooked with 1.5 cups water for 10 minutes.

When the couscous was done I realized I didn't feel like dealing with a stirfry. We had mustard greens and chard: maybe mixing the two would be a nice blend of flavors, the sweet chard and the spicy greens? Sure. Let's do that.

Add some sesame oil too! MMMM!


Then I watched HOUSE!!
