Cajun Tempeh Po’ Boy

I love a good sandwich so when I came across this recipe I wanted to try it out and see if it could become a new favorite.

I was hoping it would be spicy (there’s two teaspoons of cayenne that go into the seasoning) but I suppose between the bread and toppings, any heat goes away. This was still a flavorful dish though ! Messy (needed a paper towel or two) but delicious. I didn’t have pickles on the po’ boy in these pictures but my mom tried her po’ boy with dill pickles and loved the acidity and crunch that they added to the sandwich.

This recipe came from the cookbook “The Spicy Plant-Based Cookbook”.

I wasn’t paid in any form to promote this cookbook.

Take care y’all !

Chickpea Curry

I wish I knew where we got this recipe from so you could make this yourself. The cilantro adds a little flavor but contributes more in color. The lemon brightens it up but if you don’t have lemons or cilantro, the chickpea curry being served on brown rice could stand all on its own ! I was surprised that a curry dish would have ketchup in it but it just contributes to a pleasant level of sweetness along with the pinch of ground cloves and the cinnamon stick. The onion, garlic and hot madras curry powder gives an equal amount of savoriness to each bite. For some reason I’m having trouble being able to access my photos and get them loaded onto here but you can see my pictures of the chickpea curry on instagram. Just search for @caloriesdontexisthere

Take care y’all !
