Tempeh Tamale Pie (ever-so-slightly adapted from Peas and Thank You)

A great chef once said, “This is so good you will die. And then you will be sad because dead people can’t go back for seconds. Or the whole pan.” That chef is Mama Pea. She is brilliant not only with words, but with food. Amazingly delicious veggie food. Thanks to a reader, Mama Pea … Continue reading
