With the price of food going up and up, we at the Veganknitting household have decided to cook more food from scratch. Not only do we save a lot of money, but it's much tastier, too! So the next few postings will feature the results of our new way of life.
Normally, we love to eat LightLife's Fakin' Bacon on BLTs or as a breakfast protein. It costs about $5 for a 6 oz package.
Instead, I am buying plain Surata tempeh, at a cost of $3.50 for a 12 oz package, and marinating it in a tweaked version of the Vegan with a Vengance recipe for tempeh bacon.
Cost: Comparable cost for 6 oz - about $2.
Taste: Really good! Not quite as smoky as the original but a really nice flavor, and I can tweak it depending on what we're making it with (in this case, home fries.)
