Tempeh Sausage Pastry Puffs with Navy Bean Gravy

Testing. Testing.

For Isa Chandra Moskowitz's upcoming Vegan Brunch cookbook
(formerly being called Crack of Noon). For those of you newish to reading, I was also a recipe tester for Veganomican and a tester for next year's Vegan Cookies book. It's exciting stuff.


Tempeh Sausage Pastry Puffs with Navy Bean Gravy



Served with nutritional yeast & miso roasted cauliflower & yellow squash (not a tester).
I wanted greens, but all I had was yellows.

All of it looks super scrumptious! It's making me wish that I was a tester so I didn't have to wait for the book!

Chelsea said...

That looks so yummy. I love the feel of pastry dough being bitten into. Would love to have on right now!

Anne said...

Oh wow, my mouth needs that cauliflower and squash right now.

Wow, those look scrumptious! Funny, the title sounds totally gross (sausage and pastry? - blech!) but the pictures made me drool a little bit :)

My first thought was, puff pastry is vegan? But, sho nuf, Pepperidge Farm puff pastry is! Hooray for vegans!

Reading about your recipe testing is so exciting! And it just makes you seem like an extra cool top secret person.

Oh man, now you've really got me craving some cauliflower!! I absolutely loooove roasted cauliflower and can't believe I've never roasted it with miso, yummm.

eleanor said...

hey i'm from tempe, az (and vegan of course), but my uncle and his bf live in portland and my dad and i are going to visit them for the first time in about 2 weeks. i see you're from portland, so i was wondering if you could give me advice on which vegan restaurants are the "must visits" there? i'm not sure how many we'll have time t go to, but at least 1 or 2..so far i just know i wanna go to sip! thanks so much!!

Chelsea said...

Hey Eleanor,
I vote Blossoming Lotus and Nutshell. You also must stop at Sweetpea and check out the mini-mall.

Jes said...

Yums! Can't wait for the book to come out (on my birthday week--definitely know what I'm giving myself next year) Your test kitchen posts are always so mouthwatering!

eleanor said...

cool thanks chelsea! i'll look into those!

jess (of Get Sconed!) said...

eleanor, I second chelsea's choices! make sure to stop at food fight! as well for some nachos. Vita is also a great omni-friendly option on NE Alberta.
