Garlic Parmesan Tempeh "Wings"

Happy Earth Day! As you know, choosing plant-based foods is one of the most powerful things you can do to help save the planet. And you can have fun doing it -- with fantastic recipes like this stroke of genius from KeepinItKind.com. Each of us has the power to make the world a better place -- one bite at a time.

Ingredients:

for the marinated tempeh:
8oz block of tempeh
1/2 cup dairy-free milk
juice of 1/2 a lemon
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. dried marjoram
1/2 tsp. salt

for assembly:
1/2 cup arrowroot powder (or cornstarch)
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 cup pecan parmesan (see below)

for the pecan parmesan:
3 cups raw pecan pieces
1 cup nutritional yeast
juice of half a lemon
1 teaspoon minced garlic

ingredients

Directions:

1. Prepare pecan parmesan by pulsing pecans, nutritional yeast, lemon, and garlic in a food processor until the mixture has a crumbly texture with tiny pieces of pecan. Chill until ready to use.
2. Cut the tempeh into 10 short strips. Combine the marinade ingredients in a shallow dish. Add the tempeh, taking care to cover all sides with marinade. Cover and place the dish in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 1 hour, up to overnight.
3. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
4. On a plate, combine the arrowroot and garlic powder. Place the pecan parmesan on another plate.
5. One by one, remove one tempeh strip from the marinade, dredge in the arrowroot powder, then dip back into the marinade. Shake off any excess. Then place the strip in the pecan parmesan and coat. Lay the parmesan-coated tempeh strip on the prepared baking sheet. Continue until all strips are on the baking sheet.
6. Bake for 15 minutes, flipping once halfway through to allow for even cooking.
7. Serve warm. Enjoy!

Turtle Island Foods Tempeh

If you’re new to tempeh, it’s time to add a new favorite to your grocery list. You’ll love the nutty, savory flavor and the subtle, chewy texture. Tempeh, like tofu, is made from soybeans – but it has a higher nutritional content than tofu. It’s easy to slice and easy to use in your favorite recipes (like this week’s Meatout Mondays recipe). The high protein content makes it a fantastic alternative to meat and it has zero cholesterol.

Turtle Island Foods, the maker of Tofurky, offers a variety of traditional and flavored tempeh products. Enjoy Organic Five Grain, Organic Soy, Spicy Veggie and the marinated deliciousness of Smoky Maple Bacon, Coconut Curry, and more!

Comfortably Unaware

In Comfortably Unaware, Dr. Richard Oppenlander wakes the reader to the urgency of the message that animal agribusiness is a major threat to life on earth -- and each of us has the opportunity to, literally, help save the world.

Dr. Oppenlander's website introduces the book: "As the guardians of Planet Earth, we need to be shaken out of our complacency, to stop being comfortably unaware, and to understand the measures we must take to ensure the health and well-being of our planet and of ourselves."

Plant-based food production uses dramatically fewer resources than animal agribusiness. It eliminates the need for deforestation, uses much less water, emits less greenhouse gases, saves lives, and conserves our environment for future generations.

The problem is urgent and the solution is in our hands. Live vegan -- build a better life for you and a better world for everyone.

Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale

This week (April 20 through April 28) is the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale! Groups from around the world are holding vegan bake sales to raise funds for great causes.

The Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale is sponsored by A Well-Fed World which works to feed an ever-growing human population through a plant-based diet -- saving people, animals, and natural resources.

You don't have to be a vegan group or an animal protection group to participate -- everyone is welcome: school clubs, Girl Scout troops, church/temple/mosque organizations, even groups of friends.

Participants choose where to sell, what vegan baked goods to sell, and how to use the proceeds. It's a fun way to raise funds for your favorite cause while introducing the public to the scrumptiousness of vegan treats.
