Evening Snacks for a Late Day at work

Here are a couple of things I threw together on a weekday , after a very very long day at work.

Too bad, my digital camera decided to head to the bone yard. Smartphone camera to the rescue!

Crisp Tempeh Sticks with Lemon

Tempeh is a very versatile ingredient and so I keep some in the fridge regularly . It is a soy-based product that can be used as a meat substitute. I found that it can even work well as a a sophisticated stand-in for french fries. Slices of lemon really complement the dish.


Tempeh - any variety . Pure soy tastes best
S/P , EVOO or Canola oil for frying
1 Garlic clove
Lemon Slices

The fan club and I really enjoyed this with a crisp glass of Prosecco.

No much to say. Cut the tempeh into sticks. Fry on each side on in a hot pan along with garlic. Place on paper towel for 1-2 minutes after removing from pan. Plate and sprinkle with salt

Spicy Zucchine Oreganata

Blanched zucchini sticks (al dente!)
Italian Bread Crumbs - unseaoned
Fresh Chili Pepper
Grated Romano cheese


In a hot skillet toss zucchine, cheese, S/P, EVOO , chili. Cook 5-10 minutes until mixture becomes golden brown on one side. Plate and consume while warm.

Salute !
