Episode 244: Tempeh, Nicoise Thanksgiving, and the Alt New Year

In food news this week, we chat about an article sent to us by Local Mouthful listener Kathleen that covers meal kits migrating to grocery stores.

In our What’s for Dinner segment, it’s all about tofu’s less popular but more interesting cousin, tempeh.

Marisa recently hosted a genius summer dinner party that we’ve called Nicoise Thanksgiving.

We explore the question of whether September is the other New Year and talk about some resolutions for the fall.

And in What We’re Loving, we sing the praises of Trader Joe’s Sprouted Organic California Rice.

  1. My favorite way to cook Tempeh is using a recipe from 101 Cookbooks – Orange Pan Glazed Tempeh — yum! Thanks for a great podcast, it’s one of my favorites.

  2. I just caught one of Marisa’s Facebook Live segments the other night, and she mentioned this podcast. I am officially hooked. I’m starting at the present and working my way back through time. One episode fits in exactly the time it takes me to drive to work, so I should be able to get through most of the episodes during my school year (I’m a teacher). Also, I just signed up for Eat Your Books, and I’m really hoping that it will spur me on to cook more regularly.

  3. I used to make a vegan chicken salad that was great with steamed tempeh, grated onion, diced celery, mayo, maybe some nooch. It’s worth finding a recipe with that method. So good. I think it was in Vegan Vittles, but can’t be certain.

  4. I so appreciate the Eat Your Books recommendation – I just finished adding all of my books and magazines. I was surprised at how many regional cookbooks, which are great mementos of trips, are included. It will be such a boon when I’m at work and trying to make sure I’ve got everything on my grocery list.

    I moved to Philadelphia four years ago so I love listening to you to learn more about my new hometown.
