Husband and I took the kids over to a relative's house for the family meal where we would be the only veg*ns, and our food would probably be the only thing we could eat. We made the tempeh shepherdess pie from V'con. Here is the filling:

I didn't get a final shot of the pie put together, it was eaten so quickly! We used chickpeas instead of tempeh and made it gluten free by using arrowroot instead of the flour in the gravy. Everyone loved it, especially the omnivores.

We made the gluten freedom chocolate cupcakes from VCTOTW. They were a hit! People ate these instead of the pumpkin/pecan pies. They were so good!

Chickpeas instead of tempeh is a great idea! I love this recipe but don't usually have tempeh around (chickpeas seem to breed here though).

I forgot to mention we also roasted the chickpeas in some tamari beforehand which is what we usually do with chickpeas around here. I think the recipe uses tamari when steaming the tempeh so we figured it would work.

That's a great idea - I'm not keen on tempeh, but really like the look of that recipe. Looks like you had a yummy meal.

Love the idea of chickpeas instead of tempeh. I've made it with seitan instead, but goddamn, I love all things chickpea.
