Spicy Tempeh Nori Rolls

Cookbook * Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook

Recipe * Spicy Tempeh Nori Rolls

Yumm or Yuck * Yumm

Thanks for your messages...I miss sharing the good, bad, and ugly in vegan cookbooks! Now, just because I haven't been posting doesn't mean that I haven't been cookin'. I have a fantastic new cookbook (thanks Josie!!) - Vegonomicon. Run down on the cookbook:
--very well organziaed with "time to cook" and other labels
--tips that actually help
--recipes with instructions that acutally help (rather than confuse because the authors never tried the recipe using those instructions)
--best chocolate cookie recipe I ever made

On to SUSHI...This was my first sushi recipe and I'm happy to say it turned out great. My rolls weren't as good lookin' as the professionals - but, they tasted good all the same. Tempeh mixed with mayo and sesame pepper oil is amazing! Combine with avacado and scallion - yumm. It is listed in the appetizer section, but I made it for dinner with a cup of instant miso on the side.
