Hot & Sour Soup with Sesame Garlic Tempeh

Tempeh not pictured... I ate it all too fast. 
Ever have a weekend you needed a weekend to recover from? This past weekend I had the pleasure of helping out at The Herbivore Clothing Company booth at The NYC Vegetarian Food Festival. It was a blur of friendly new and familiar faces, food and lots of fun. I know "fun" is kind of a lazy word to describe a day but I stand behind it. If you missed it - you can see the photos on our Facebook page by clicking on this sentence.

There's something kind of wonderful that happens when you're exhausted and busy though... with the right mindset you can look at the random collection of leftovers from meals past and see something new. This isn't a traditional Hot & Sour Soup - it's more a collection of wonderful that makes up a soup that is hot and sour but we loved it.

It might be March already but it's still cold out and that means soup season is still here! Enjoy it while we still can!

Hot & Sour Soup with Sesame Garlic Tempeh 

Heat oven to 325. 

Place your strips of Tempeh in a glass baking dish and bake for around 10 minutes or until they are the desired crispy. 

While your Tempeh is baking, toss the remaining ingredients in a large stock pot or Dutch oven and heat over a medium heat, while stirring occasionally. Once it begins to bubble, reduce heat to a simmer and put the lid on your pot. Let simmer for 10 -15 minutes or until your vegetables are tender. 

Serve your soup with your baked Tempeh over the top and with some rice crackers if you have 'em.
