MINI KEBABS 🍅🌿🍅

in esteem •  17 days ago  (edited)

Hello my Dearest Foodies,

Summer is far from over yet and these MINI TEMPEH KEBABS are perfect for BBQ party although I grilled them in oven. They are marinated in my special BBQ sauce made from scratch.

Although, I prepared these many times before, because they are delicious and everyone loves them, this recipe is improved. In the past, I was always using organic ketchup as a base for the BBQ sauce, however, in this case I am using sundried tomatoes instead. And even though they are store bought, you can make them yourself, especially if you grow your own tomatoes. Also, you can grill these kebabs on outdoor grill if you prefer. I bet they will be incredibly delicious!

I wish you fabulous summer week 💖😊💖

MINI KEBABS
Mini Tempeh Kebabs with Wholesome BBQ Sauce
Vegan – Gluten Free- Refined Sugar Free- Oil Free
Author: Lena’s Vegan Living

INGREDIENTS for 20 pc
• Tempeh 120gr (evenly cubed)
• Mushrooms 10 (cut in half)
• Small zucchini (cut into quarters)
• Shepherd or bell red pepper (cut into squares)
• Red onion (cut into quarters)
• Small skewers 20
• Brush
• Parchment paper

PROCESS
• Make your kebabs by piercing veggies first and tempeh last. I started with zucchini, pepper next, mushroom and onion before tempeh. However, you can do it in different order if you like, just make sure the tempeh is always last.
• When ready, dip each one carefully in a bowl filled with BBQ sauce while supporting the bottom with spoon.
• Place it on a plate and remove excess sauce with a brush.
• Place them into a refrigerator in a sealed container for couple of hours or overnight not marinade.
• Preheat the oven to 400F.
• When ready, arrange them on baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 30min.
• Reset the oven to broil and bake for 5 to 7 min. You may brush them lightly with oil if you like.
• Serve with creamy dressing.

Oh my these look amazing dear Lena. Both the bbq sauce and the vegan may are definitely recipes I'll be trying :) How are your hands healing? Easier to move around yet? Your photos certainly look fabulous, I wish I could enjoy that cookout with you! xx

Oh my hands, still not very good. Thank you for asking my Dear Mrs Bird. I am going to have left hand surgery in November and the right hand is far from perfect. But I am doing my best despite the pain. And if it was only hands, lol. Thank God the Canadian government gave me disability pension so I don;t have to anything else besides Steemit. But I am planning to publish recipe book, hopefully before end of this year.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I am happy you like the recipe..........you right, it would be awesome if we could join the forces, lol 💖😍💖

I think this looks so bad you should just sent it all to me and I will "sacrifice" myself and eat them all. 🤣🤣

Another amazingly looking recipe as always and I am sure a delicious one as well.

As always have a blessed day, my friend. 😀🤗

This is the funniest comment I ever got Durko, lol. But I take it as a compliment, because it is a big one. I only wish I could send it to you. Thank you s much and have a wonderful week 😍

And, it was surely meant as a compliment. I would go all in on those Kebabs. 🤣🤣 I always say I will get back to participating to the in you contest but then cook some stuff and eat it all before I can take some pictures of it. 🤣🤣

Drool, drool, drool! Tempeh is my FAVOURITE 'meat' alternative - hubby isn't a fan but he has no choice. I've recently started making a really delish dish where you slice the tempeh into matchsticks, fry, then in a separate pan fry ginger, then add a blend of equal tamari and maple, along with some thin sliced kaffir lime leaves - toss together, reduce a little, then serve in lettuce cups with some black rice, black sesame and fried eggplant and fried shallots - hang on - gotta head to kitchen... tummyrumbling and I HAVE TEMPEH IN THE CUPBOARD!

Thank you so much my Dear.............I am glad you like it. Your recipe sounds amzing too. I have couple of other ways to make tempeh because I love it, but I must try yours too 😍

Howdy Miss Lena! these look super tasty indeed! What is Tempeh again? lol. Is that some kind of soy protein? I've never seen kabobs look anything like these but I would love to try them!

Howdy Janton! Yes tempeh is product made by fermenting soy beans, which is very healthy and high in protein. You can read more about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tempeh And if you like to try these kebabs you can make them; it's very easy. Altough, many people who try tempeh first time do not like it. If I didn't, because of the way it was prepared. However, this recipe should do the trick and even of you do not make the BBQ sauce from scratch. Just use the one you like.

Anyway, thank you for stopping by, it means a lot 😊

Tempeh
Tempeh or tempe (; Javanese: témpé, Javanese pronunciation: [tempe]) is a traditional Indonesian soy product, that is made from fermented soybeans. It is made by a natural culturing and controlled fermentation process that binds soybeans into a cake form. Here a special fungus is used, which has the Latin name Rhizopus oligosporus, usually marketed under the name Tempeh starter.

It is especially popular on the island of Java, where it is a staple source of protein.

Yes, that's what the Wikipedia says!

Yay I was right! About something..for a change. lol. That tempeh is fermented soybeans, that was a lucky guess. Commercial BBQ sauce is so full of sugar and high fructose corn syrup! It took us forever to find one without those in them.

I can try to make those but the things I make never look like the ones on the recipe, mine always look like trash! lol.
