- 1/4 cup organic veggie broth (fat free)
Place all ingredients into a large mixing bowl, start with 1/4 cup of veggie broth. Throughly mix the ingredients (checkout Cuisinart Smart Stick) slowly adding additional veggie broth until you have thick pancake batter consistency. Spoon in a large dollop into your non-stick-pan (checkout Scanpan Cookware) and evenly work it flat into a pancake. Cook on a medium-low heat (covered) until the top starts to change color, then flip to the other side (if you can’t flip use a large spatula), ~5-7 minutes each side. Add your sautéed veggies, Daiya cheddar cheese and fold over. Plate it up and enjoy!

This is an awesome chili that I adapted from the Post Punk Kitchen website, by IsaChandralike. Serve it with a choice of toppings; guacamole, chopped onions, Daiya cheddar cheese, chips…
- 1 package of Organic Soy Tempeh
- 1 large yellow onion, diced medium
- 1 green bell pepper, diced medium
- 1 large carrot, diced small
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil + 2 teaspoons
- 2 teaspoons soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons chili powder
- 2 teaspoons cumin
- 2 teaspoons fresh oregano
- 3 pinches of sea salt
- Couple of generous dashes of Montreal Steak Seasoning
- 2.5 cups of pinto beans (soaked over night), drained
- 1 cup of Negra Modelo beer
- 15 oz can of diced Organic Fire Roasted Tomatoes
- .5 a can of organic tomato paste
- 1 1/2 cups organic veg broth (may add additional as needed)
- 1 tbl pure maple syrup
- Juice of 1/2 a lemon
- Handful fresh cilantro, chopped (about a cup, lightly packed)
In a fry pan, cook onions, green bell pepper and carrots, until tender and a lightly brown. After 20 minutes add garlic, salt and spices (Save the cilantro for last).
In a second fry pan, put tempeh in and fill with water until it is almost covered. Add 2 teaspoons soy sauce and let simmer over high heat for 15 minutes, occasionally turning tempeh. When tempeh softens, mash with a fork, it should be crumbly. Lower heat to medium and lightly spray with canola oil, and saute for 15 more minutes.
Pour above ingredients into a large pot. Add tomato sauce, tomato paste, beans, maple syrup, lemon juice, beer and water. Cook on medium heat for about an hour (stirring occasionally). Add cilantro. Serve!
