      Yummy! I really didn't miss the chicken at all. This sort of reminded me of my Thanksgiving stuffing in it's flavor, but more sophisticated. I used tofu cubes, frozen, defrosted and squoze (is that a word?) the excess liquid out. Also skipped the bouquet garni and just dumped some thyme, parsley and celery leaves in... sorry! But just because I was too lazy to do that didn't cause any harm. I absolutely love this dish.

      Really yummy, hearty, filling, and flavourful! This was my first recipe using tempeh, and I loved it. I don't know why some people say tempeh isn't good, cause this was just like a regular stew but vegan/vegetarian. Even my picky fiancee loved it!
