Vegan slumgolian! *Day 1*

January 26, 2009

day-11

Welcome to day 1 of  the 22 day filth amateur, food porn fest!  This is a recipe from my mom, that we had growing up a lot.  It’s easily veganised, and like a funner ( I love that word) version of sloppy joe’s.  Thank god for the filthy amateur food porn fest, I would never be able to post this.

Total cost about $6

  • 1 Pkg of tempeh
  • 1 can of vegetarian beans
  • 1 large family size can of tomato soup
  • 1 onion
  • 3 tbls of curry
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbls ancho chili powder, tumeric
  • 1 tsp of smoked paprika (optional)

First boil a package of tempeh first for 10 minutes.  while waiting,  put some diced onions in a pan until they get translucent.  Let the onions cook for a few minutes, and add the garlic (minced).  When the tempehs done, crumble it and throw it in to cook with the onions.  Let the tempeh crisp up a little bit.  There’s usually a lot of water in it, so it might take a while.  Add all of the spices except the curry, and stir.  Let that cook for a few minutes and add the soup, and beans.  The can of beans just says vegetarian beans in tomato sauce.  The can in my grocery was right next to the pork and beans.  Add the curry and stir really well.  Garnish with parsley and nutritional yeast.  I served it over wheat buns, but I’ve heard of people using macaroni, or rice.  This makes a lot, thanks ma!

  1. What a great way to turn your poverty into art.

    I once considered writing a Ramen noodle cookbook but it was before the internet and I couldn’t afford the paper 😦
