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!

This was a very good dish. Very flavorful and filling. I followed the recipe exactly and there is really nothing that I would do differently.

I wish I could add another 3/4 star but that is because I could only get baby bella's for mushrooms, so didn't have a good mix for the mushrooms. We also thought it had just a bit too much leek, perhaps just the white parts next time. But otherwise, this was wonderful. We're even freezing two containers for my DH to take for lunch. I also simmered the Tempeh for 10 minutes before browning it, which I did in two batches so it would have plenty of room in the pan. I served it with a small side of lentil pilaf which I'd made last week and had in the freezer. Can't wait to make this again!

Delish! Made this for Thanksgiving as a veggie alternative to the turkey. I was the only veggie at the table, but everyone had some and it got rave reviews. I had never had the chicken dish, so I was not sure what to expect. It was more of a stew than I thought it was going to be, which was wonderful on top of mashed potatoes. Thanks for posting, I would make this again. It was the perfect dish to introduce tempeh to 8 die hard turkey eaters.

i liked this a lot but next time i will not cook the leeks until later. i found them too soft and the lovely green color was gone.

This was absolutely delicious. I don't usually make dishes with loads of garlic on a weeknight, but I couldn't resist the sound of this one. It was worth it though. I'm going to have to make it for my workmates as a peace offering though, I think. I used tempeh, and it broke up a bit in the stew, so I'll chop it into larger chunks next time. I, too, didn't make the bouquet garni as I didn't have any twine and didn't want to duplicate the Bridget Jones Blue Soup fiasco. I served it over mashed potato and was in gastronomic heaven. If I hadn't filled myself up "taste testing", I would have had a second helping!
