Pasta Salad, Steamed Veggies & Garbanzo Tempehs
I truly enjoy cooking and creating some scrumptious meals. Last Sunday I experimented with this dish.
I made a tomato marinated pasta salad on Saturday and on Sunday I created a new mixture for my baked tempehs with garbanzo/fava flour mixed in with some spices to make it taste good. I truly enjoyed this meal, but since I am still experimenting with this pasta salad, I will post the recipe later on once I get it right.
Today I will share with you my tempehs recipe. I hope you enjoy it.
Garbanzo Flour Tempehs
1 package of original tempehs (cut in strips or triangles)
1/3 c. garbanzo/fava flour
2 T. brown sugar
1 envelope of Sazon (with culantro & achiote)
A sprinkle of kosher salt, garlic & onion powder
In a small mixing bowl blend together all these ingredients well and then add a small amount of water to create a thick batter. Dip the tempehs cuts into the mixture and place them on a greased baking pan.
Cover with foil and place the tempehs in the oven for 10 minutes at 365 degrees. Then uncover and bake for 10 more minutes or until crispy.
I served my tempehs with my pasta salad and some steamed broccoli and cauliflower/
