Tempeh Fries with Sesame Broccoli
We finally had a chance to open a cookbook and try something new the other night. We were still looking for something quick though so the cookbook we opened was Vegan Express, where we found an appetizer and a side dish that combined to make an excellent meal. And it was all done in 25 minutes. The Tempeh Fries with Wasabi-Dill Mayonnaise were awesome and super simple, as was the Spicy Sesame Broccoli. The tempeh is just pan fried in a mixture of soy sauce and oil and is paired with a refreshingly delicious sauce containing vegan mayo, a little rice milk and lime juice, plus wasabi and fresh dill. The broccoli is even easier, as it's steamed in a mixture of soy sauce, sesame oil, white wine and sugar, then sprinkled with crushed red pepper and sesame seeds.
