Recipe Review: OhMyVeggie's Tempeh Hash with Brussel Sprouts

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Tempeh Hash with Brussel Sprouts - what could be better? Its completely vegan, healthy and you probably have many of the ingredients already.

As most of you know, I am a recipe and Pinterest junkie, creating many of my meals using recipes from cookbooks and pins. Rarely do I experiment and whip up an amazing recipe without instructions and an ingredient list (except my Crock-Pot Chicken Barley Soup).

Which brings me to the point of this post.

Last week I tried a new online recipe, "Tempeh Hash with Brussel Sprouts" by Oh My Veggies, and oh was it delicious!

If you have not heard of them, Oh My Veggies is a vegetarian food blog with a focus on easy recipes made with fresh, seasonal ingredients. They also won an award in 2017 for Healthline Best Blogs vegetarian category. Not only do they provide great recipes but they also offer information for new vegetarians and sell their own e-book!

Whenever I make a trip to the grocery store I usually make a list with meals I want to make in mind. I choose a couple new recipes to try and "Tempeh Hash with Brussel Sprouts" caught my eye. It was vegan, it had ingredients I like and I never cook with brussel sprouts so it was a good change. 

To see my grocery haul from that week read my post Loblaws Grocery Haul.

Making the recipe from Oh My Veggies instructions was easy. Though I did have to learn how to shred brussel sprouts.

When reading the ingredient "2 cups shredded brussel sprouts" I thought "do I need a cheese grater"?! Having never shredded them before I had no idea what the technique was. Thankfully google, the knower of all things, answered that question for me.

To shred brussel sprouts you first remove the woody hard ends and outer leaves. Then you cut the sprouts in half and slice them the way you would an onion. The layers will separate and you will be left with shredded brussel sprouts! 

Or if your kitchen is well equipped you could just use a food processor...but I didn't have one. 

Tempeh is also a really interesting ingredient to cook with. If your not vegetarian or don't make a lot of meatless meals, you probably know what tofu is but not tempeh.

Tempeh is a soy product, like tofu, but the difference between the two is tempeh is fermented whole soybean. The process of fermentation binds the soybeans into a cake form. The taste is slightly nutty, unlike tofu which is flavourless.

I love cooking with tempeh. It looks like tuna...but its tempeh.

I loved "Tempeh Hash with Brussel Sprouts" and I believe you will too. Whip it up and give it a try and let me know if you enjoyed it too!
