Gives four pieces. Approximate nutritional information per piece: kcal 216/ carb 33g/ protein 17g/ fat 2 g

Preparation time: 10-15 min
Cooling time: at least 1 hour

Notes: This cake has a low GI, contains mostly complex carbs and is high on protein. If you don’t try to avoid high GI carbs in your diet, you can always substitute stevia by more natural/ whole foods. Bananas and dates are a great alternative to stevia.
Protein powder: I use pea protein because it can be used as thickening agent. You could substitute it with other plant protein powders (sunwarrior vanilla is a tasty alternative), however, you have to add more to achieve the same consistency.

Joni's home made Peanut protein bars

1 cup Natural peanut butter
8 tablespoons of syrup
1 & 1/4 cups soy protein powder
1 cup of uncooked oatmeal

(i also added couple tablespoons of tahini just for
the hell of it)

Mix the pb and syrup in a bowl, microwave on full for
80 secs. Add the rest and mix together. I wasn't 100%
sure of the amounts I used but the end result should
not be too dry, add suryp and/or water if the texture
is too dry.

Original recepie author says that you can add
raisins/nuts etc to taste.

Smooth into a tray and leave for 20 mins. Cut into 10
to 12 equal bars and wrap and store in fridge!!

Nutritional breakdown:

protein 204,6
carbs 248
fat 184,2

my mix made 12 bars so the breakdown per bar is:
protein 17,1
carb 26,7
fat 15,6

Tempting Tempeh Burgers
Makes 4 burgers

This recipe was created using White Wave's Original 8 ounce blocks. You may also find frozen tempeh burgers already formed into patties. I recommend storing tempeh in the freezer until the day you need it. Let it thaw for a few hours in the refrigerator. Black spots on the surface do not indicate spoilage and can be cut off. Tempeh is made from cultured soy beans and develops its unique flavor from a fermentation process. If you are looking for a tasty protein alternative that has some chew to it, give tempeh a try. In addition to 24 grams of protein, tempeh provides 9 whopping grams of fiber.

2 (8 ounce) packages of tempeh
(or a 1 pound block or 4 tempeh burgers)

In a shallow baking dish, combine the following for marinade:
¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce or tamari
2 tablespoons sake or white wine
¼ cup pineapple juice*
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 pinch red pepper flakes
½ teaspoon white pepper

Cut each 8 ounce block of tempeh horizontally into 2 even square slices to get 4 burgers. Place in marinade and set aside for 15 to 20 minutes, turning occasionally. Heat grill to medium-high to high temperature. Oil grill rack with vegetable oil. Remove tempeh from marinade and grill for 4 to 5 minutes. Flip with a spatula and continue to grill second side for 4 to 5 minutes. Serve immediately.

* If using canned pineapple slices to make the Grilled Pineapple-Jalapeno Relish (see next recipe), use the remaining juice for the tempeh marinade.

Grilled Pineapple Jalapeno Relish
Makes 1 cup

1 (8 ounce) can of unsweetened pineapple slices (or fresh)
1 large jalapeno, seeded and minced*
Juice of a lime
Pinch of cayenne
Pinch of salt

Grill pineapple until nicely browned, about 3 to 4 minutes each side. Cut into small chunks and place in a small mixing bowl. Add jalapeno, cayenne and salt. Mix well and refrigerate covered for at least 30 minutes for flavors to meld.

*Removing the seeds and white membranes of the jalapeno cuts down the heat. Include them in the mix to make this a hot and spicy relish. The hot oils in jalapenos can cause burning and irritation to the skin and eyes. Be sure to thoroughly wash your hands and the cutting board after mincing chiles. To be extra careful, wear gloves when handling them.

SAVORY VEGETABLES AND TOFU

1 pound medium firm tofu
cooking sauce
2 teaspoons salt
1 pound broccoli, green beans or carrots
4 cups water
1 teaspoon each salt and sugar
2 quarter size slices fresh ginger, crushed
1 tablespoon each salad oil and dry sherry
4 tablesppons salad oil
1/4 pound mushrooms, quartered
1 teaspoon dry sherry
2 teaspoon sugar

Place tofu in a colander and let drain for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare cooking sauce and set aside. Cut tofu in domino shaped pieces, and place between paper towels, gently pressing out excess water. Sprinkle with half a teaspoon of salt and set aside. If you use broccoli, cut off the flowerets and slash stems. Peel the thick stalks and thinly slice. If you use green beans, remove the ends and strings, cutting them into two inch long slanting slices. If you use carrots, cut them into quarter inch thick slanting slices.

In a three quart pan over medium heat, place water, the one teaspoon each of salt and sugar, ginger and the one tablespoon each of oil and sherry. Bring to a simmer.

Heat two tablespoons of the salad oil in a wide frying pan over high heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring until golden. Add sherry and the half a teaspoon of sugar and cook until liquid evaporates; remove mushrooms and set aside. Reduce heat to medium and add the remaining two tablespoons of oil. Add tofu and cook until flecked with brown (about three minutes on each side). Return mushrooms to the pan. Stir cooking sauce, pouring into the pan and cook, stirring gently, until sauce bubbles and thickens. Keep hot. Bring seasoned water to a boil. Drop in vegetables. Cook until crisp tender (about four minutes). Drain and then discard ginger. To serve, arrange vegetables around edges of a serving platter. Pour tofu mixture into the center.

Cooking Sauce:

In a bowl, blend 2 c. vegetable stock (or broth), 2 T. soy sauce, 1 T. sherry, 1 t. sugar, 2 t. cornstarch, and 1/4 t. sesame oil.

SPINACH AND TOFU SOUP

3 inch block fresh tofu
2 bunches spinach
3 cups vegetable stock
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
salt and ground black pepper

Cut the tofu into 12 small pieces, each about one fourth of an inch thick. Wash the spinach leaves and cut them into small pieces. Bring the stock to a rolling boil in a wok. Add the tofu and soy sauce. Bring it back to a boil and simmer for about two minutes. Add the spinach and simmer for another minute. Skim the surface to make it clear, then adjust the seasoning and serve immediately.
