  • Incredible!

    This was so easy to put together & my whole family loved it! It is delicious & very filling.
    I did steam the tempeh beforehand because I always steam it. When it came to crumbling the tempeh, I found that my pastry cutter worked perfect & much easier to clean up.
    I am keeping this one :)
