Have You Balanced Your Eggs Today?

Or rather on last Saturday. Those of you who live with non-vegans, as I do, may have some eggs lying around. On the spring solstice, you can stand them up on their ends and they will balance. This never fails to amuse my kids and anyone else who happens to be around. I think it only works within an hour (or maybe half hour) of the actual solstice.

This is a spicy grilled tempeh that I think may have come off the Whole Foods website. I had high hopes for this one because the marinade was so tasty. I think the tempeh bitterness was actually made even stronger by grilling on my cast iron grill pan. Anyone have any non-bitter tempeh recipes? I really wish I could like tempeh but I just don't! That grilled pineapple was good, though.

A Different Black Bean Soup

Ah, that vegetarian staple, Black Bean Soup. So many recipes, and most taste the same. Well, this one is certainly different. It is from The Vegan Table, by Colleen-Patrick Goudreau. It has coconut milk and bananas! I swapped out the ginger for ground coriander, and only pureed it part way, but otherwise used the recipe exactly. This was quite good, and my ten year old enjoyed it, too!
