Menu: Aztec Salad: Broiled Marinated BBQ Tempeh Served on a Bed of Greens With a Quinoa Salad, Topped With Roasted Tomato Balsamic Vinaigrette and Pan-Toasted Spiced Pepitas
The recipe for this Aztec Salad is in Crazy Sexy Diet by vegan darling Kris Carr (a book I highly recommend, not just for its fabulous recipes but because it gives great insight and guidance into living a healthier life).
Ahhh. Aztec Salad. This is possibly one of the most delicious things that I have ever eaten. The combination of all of the different flavors was divine. I will admit that it took some time in the kitchen -- the tempeh needed was steamed, marinated and THEN broiled, the tomatoes roasted, the quinoa cooked up, the pepitas seasoned...yadda yadda...but it was so very worth it. I did used a prepared BBQ sauce (such cheatz!) though the recipe gives you ingredients to make your own. I know you will love this so please give it a try! And trust me when I say that the dressing is key! Report back to me on how loudly your taste buds sang with delight when they first met a forkful of this treat.
