Blood orange, ginger & herb dressing

A nice, bright, refreshing dressing that goes very nicely with blue cheese.

Blood orange vinegar, Tuscan herb olive oil, copious, micro-planed ginger, a little salt and pepper.

Marmalade-Bbq tempeh burger with slaw

Tender tempeh, marinated, then seared in marmalade, barbecue sauce and topped with lightly dressed cole slaw.

Tempeh simmered for 15 minutes to improve the flavor and soften, cut into patties, then sliced across for thinner patties.

Sauce consisted of tomato paste, marmalade. ginger, garlic, tamari and water to thin.  Marinated the patties overnight, then seared in a pan to warm.

Dressing for the slaw — sour cream, lime juice, agave and a little salt.

Great combination of flavors.

A nice soup to stead against the first flakes of fall:  Lentils with veggies, in a tomato-ey broth with curry powder, cumin and coriander.

Sweeter veggies stand out nicely in this soup — butternut squash, sweet potato (for those enabled), parsnip and carrot.

Being too lazy to make the curry powder, garam masala was a nice substitute — though, it also calls for nutmeg, so it wasn’t too far off from that to begin with.
