Delicious BBQ baked tempeh! Use it as part of a Buddha bowl, on salads, sandwiches or wraps.
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees. Remove the tempeh from jar.

Miso & Sesame Chicken Noodles
1 large chicken breast fillet
2 garlic cloves
15g fresh root ginger
1 red pepper
1 toasted sesame oil sachet (30ml)
3 whole-wheat noodle nests
1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes
15ml soy sauce
5g sesame seeds
Deseed the red pepper and cut into thin strips
Peel and finely chop (or grate) the ginger
Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic
Combine the miso paste with 1 tbsp boiled water, the soy sauce and 2 tsp sugar – this is your miso mixture
Chop the coriander roughly, including the stalks
Add the whole-wheat noodles to a pot of boiled water (enough to fully submerge them)
Bring to the boil and cook over a high heat for 4-7 min until the noodles are cooked with a slight bite
Once cooked, drain and return to the pot
Meanwhile, heat a large, dry wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a high heat
Once hot, add the sliced red pepper and cook for 3-5 min until starting to blacken slightly and char (this adds a smoky flavour)
Meanwhile, slice the chicken into equally sized strips
Once the peppers are charred, transfer them to a plate and return the pan to a medium-high heat
Add the sliced chicken to the pan with a large drizzle of vegetable oil
Cook for 2 min, or until the chicken starts to turn golden, then add the chopped ginger, chopped garlic and chilli flakes (alter depending on how hot you can handle)
Cook for a further 2 min, or until the chicken is cooked through so that there is no pink meat
Add the charred pepper back to the pan with the miso mixture and cook for 30 sec
Add the cooked, drained noodles and toss to coat them thoroughly
Remove from the heat and stir in the toasted sesame oil, toasted sesame seeds and most of the chopped coriander (reserve some for garnish) – these are your miso & sesame chicken noodles
Serve the miso & sesame chicken noodles and garnish with the remaining coriander
1 bottle white wine (we like pinot grigio)
1/4 cup Peach Schnapps
1 cup chopped strawberries
1 handful mint leaves
1 peach, sliced
Combine wine, kombucha and schnapps in a large pitcher. Add strawberries, mint and peaches! Serve in wine glasses and enjoy!
Grilled Cheese with Sauerkraut and Dijon
Dijon mustard, to taste
2 x slices Cheddar cheese
1 x ounce extra-sharp cheddar cheese, sliced thin
Spread some mustard on the inside of each slice of bread. Arrange one slice of Cheese and half the sharp cheddar in a single layer on each slice of bread, making sure to distribute the cheddar like a cheese boss who gets what she wants out of every bite. Lay the sauerkraut on the bottom slice and top with the top slice. Spread half the butter over the outside of the top slice of bread.
Place the sandwich buttered side down in a skillet over medium-high heat. Butter the outside of the top slice with the remaining butter. Cook, adjusting heat as necessary, until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted, flipping once halfway through. Cut and serve immediately.
