Yum. I, of course, added way more garlic than called for, and used Japanese organic brown rice. This meal disappeared very quickly!

My first experience with tempeh and I have to admit i was afraid... I didn't have pecans in the house (tempeh yes, pecans no... go figure) so i used pine nuts which are shaped similarly but have a different texture and were a very nice addition. ate it with a nice tomato and avocado salad mixed in. tempeh is ok!

This was very good, essentially as written. I substituted soy sauce for Tamari. I can't tell the difference and it's what I had on hand. Essentially doubled the garlic and used fresh marjoram and doubled that. I think next time I'll try adding a diced Granny Smith apple and some fresh sage. Maybe some shitakes too.

Mmm. Tasty! Used walnuts instead of pecans, doubled the garlic and added some mushrooms and sesame seeds. Didn't have marjoram and thyme by itself so used some Italian seasonings and herbs de Provence. Bam! Very tasty dinner! Served with steamed beets and made for a pretty presentation. Definitely worth revisiting!

I thought this recipe was just ok. It was definitely filling and a nice change from veggie burgers but I doubt I'll be making it again. It was pretty bland.

Very good and light, makes you feel great. However a bit bland and/or bitter for me (maybe it was the brand of tempeh I used). Perhaps use cilantro instead of parsley or add lemon.

This casserole tastes even better than I expected and does indeed promote happy thoughts of Thanksgiving and stuffing. Caramelized Butternut Squash #106627, and my DH's favorite mustardy Brussels sprouts were great side dishes to this vegetarian meal. I used Lundberg's wild and brown rice mix which I think really added to the deep, rich flavor of this dish. Next time I make this I'd like to experiment with trying to create a firmer texture so that I could cut it into squares or bars. I want it to look more like a meat substitute rather than a rice side dish. Bergy...you are the best!

This is a super recipe! I thought it would be boring, but the spices go well together. I now have a low fat recipe to substitute traditional Thanksgiving stuffing.
