    Tempeh Fajitas

    This is more a comment than a question. I think the nutritional information is misleading because most of the sugars are in the pineapple juice in the marinade. Once the tempeh is removed to the grill, only a little marinade is used for basting. I started with 1.25 cups of marinade and by the time I was done I still had 3/4 cups left over.

    This type of thing is true of a lot of recipes. The software goes solely from the ingredients list, not from the dish as completed. So you have to look at the nutritional information with care.

    As stated, the total nutritional value is for the entire 1.25 C. juice. Even if you deduct the 3/4 cup remaining, your total intake of sugar is minimal. Enjoy the recipe, and forget the nutrional quirks.

    The nutritional information is often misleading for marinated foods, as the system cannot identify marinades which are discarded. The calculation assumes someone will be eating every bit of every ingredient.

    We who cook and eat are smarter than the software. It has no way to know how much of a marinade we will ingest, so it assumes we ingest it all. icon_rolleyes.gif
