Do you ever make a large jar of sauce and every time you open the fridge and pass over it, you feel its accusing look? As soon as I saw Elizabeth's BBQ sauce, I wanted it that night. It used pantry ingredients and only made a small amount. And it looked really tasty. Then the night went a bit Pete Tong and I had to wait until I had time on the weekend. I was determined to use up a packet of tempeh that had crept past the use-by date a few days ago. The BBQ sauce was surprisingly good with the tempeh and some leftover fried rice.
fried rice was gone, E hit upon the idea of slathering a bit more sauce over the tempeh. This worked brilliantly. It used up a lot of the sauce still in the jar.
rapid refried beans for nacho the next night. Instead of adding tomato paste to the beans, I added the sauce. It gave great flavour. So much so that when I make this BBQ sauce again I might use leftovers wherever I need some tomato paste. I am not sure it will last that long though.
Not a recipe as such, but a great quick dinner idea. Something simple so I can eat with Sylvia. Then I made a Coconut Chana Saag from Isa Does It to last out the week before we head off on holiday for the last few days of Vegan MoFo. I will share some food from my trips to Adelaide and Port Fairy after Vegan MoFo.
