Chow Mein Tempeh

A few months ago I had the pleasurer of my daughter and her boys moving in with me and because of this I have had to revert back to cooking for more than one. Yes, on Sundays or a weekend here and there we would get together and have dinners but for the most part I would just cook for me. This was something that took getting used to, so when my sweet family came back home I had no idea how it would go but so far just a few hick ups like this dinner all has gone well.

Sure, cooking is shared sometimes ( so awesome) but for the most part I am home so I get to cook and surprise my family. Sometimes it is a good surprise other times I am greeted with looks of really? Todays recipe didn’t disappoint with looks. My daughter bought the tempeh and my grandson loves top ramen ( that is why I used these noodles’ )so I thought (crazy me) this might be a winner of a recipe but it turns out this was one just for the older folks. ( grandsons not approved)

Not letting the little ones detour me I made it anyway and found it was tasty, really easy plus a quick dinner.

Tempeh is fermented soy beans that is high in protein, vitamins, minerals and prebiotics so whether you are a meat eater or not this is a great addition to any meal plus it is so vestal with out the texture tofu has.
