Rice Paper Rolls with Tempeh and Rainbow Veggies

Rice_Paper_Rolls_Tempeh_Rainbow_Veggies_Recip_001

This is the first time I’ve ever tried tempeh, and I must say, I was silly to just bite into the raw thing because it was quite not that great tasting, if you know what I mean. I think it’s probably because the tempeh is fermented, so it has that strange taste. I quickly came up a marinade to soak it in, then I cooked it a little, and I’ve come to discover that tempeh is absolutely delicious.

This is one of those dishes that I always k new I would like, but never really thought about cooking it until I tasted one of the GREATEST vegan cafes I have ever gone to, and that is Dr.J’s Vibrant Cafe in Downtown, LA!

Their bowls totally blew me away and one of them had celery, carrots, cilantro and a bunch of other amazing flavours. I had to recreate something similar, just to fulfill my taste buds, since I miss that cafe like crazy but sadly I don’t even live in that area, so I can’t really go there as I want.

This is one of those few dishes where I really love the taste of celery, as that’s something I tend not to eat a lot. Continue reading
