Bro must be drunk already.
Is it too early to start?
Depends. Do you plan on driving anywhere or being around sober assholes who will wag a finger at you?
I cleared my schedule.
This is from Saturday Night.
The dude works some weird hours. This may be his happy hour.
We got slammed too. Here's my walk up the train station steps on my way to feed my ferals. I almost killed myself 700 times.
I lit some incense and turned on my neon clock.
I went home and made this cassoulet, though.
I would make his recipes but he always adds sausage and bacon.
Email him and ask for a vegetarian recipe. And not fried.
what in the good lord is that?
1pm on a Tuesday is a pretty loose definition of "happy" hour
It's a vegetarian cassoulet.
1 cup dry white beans (cannelini, great northern or navy beans will do) or 3 cups canned, drained and washed. If using dry beans, soak overnight and cook until tender.
1 8 oz package of tempeh, cubed into ½-inch pieces
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
2 medium carrots, sliced
2 stalks of celery, diced
5 cloves of garlic, finely minced, or crushed into a paste
15 mushrooms, sliced (use any kind-- wild mushrooms would be great here. I used crimini because I always have them on hand)
2 tomatoes, diced
1 tbsp chopped sage
1 tbsp chopped thyme
2 bay leaves
2 tbsp parsley, chopped
½ cup red wine (optional)
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
Heat oil in a large saucepan.
Add the tempeh cubes and saute, stirring frequently, until the tempeh is golden-brown.
Add the onions, garlic, celery and carrots. Add a pinch of salt and some ground black pepper and saute the vegetables about five minutes until the onions are translucent.
Add the mushrooms and the wine. Cook until the moisture from the vegetables and all of the water has evaporated.
Add the tomatoes and beans along with the bay, sage, parsley and thyme.
Bring to a boil -- add more water if the stew is too thick - and turn the heat to a level where it boils gently.
Check salt and pepper. Turn off the heat and serve hot with some crusty French bread.
You putta the tomata
Is tempeh the same as tofu?
Imma gon maka the tomato sauce the way he does next a time a
I bet that will be damn good
It's a soy product but: Tempeh's fermentation process and its retention of the whole bean give it a higher content of protein, dietary fiber, and vitamins.
