Miso Casserole

What you need: 

1 pack of Tempeh
2 or 3 onions, chopped
A few mushrooms, chopped
Peppers (1 or 2, chopped)
Cashew nuts (about 2 ounces)
Pine nuts (about 1 ounce)
Beans (I used blackeye but it really doesn't matter which ones you put in)
Tin of chopped tomatoes
A few squirts of tomato puree
Loads of garlic
Mixed herbs
garlic powder

What you do: 

Sauce: ½ pack of Mugi Miso About 1½ pints of veg stock
Defrost the Tempeh (takes about 3 minutes on ‘defrost’ in the microwave) and cut into small cubes (about 1 centimetre).
Fry it with the garlic powder (I don't use fresh garlic for this because it burns) until its golden brown all over.
Take it off the heat and keep it for later.
To make the sauce, pour about 1 pint of boiling water onto the veggie stock cubes, and the rest onto the miso. Stir the miso around a bit until its dissolved.
Fry the onions with the herbs and a few crushed cloves of fresh garlic. When they're going soft, add the mushrooms and peppers. When these are nearly cooked, add the nuts, beans and tempeh, and continue frying it for 5 minutes or so. Then add the sauce, the chopped tomatoes, the tomato puree, and the pepper to taste. Simmer it all together for a few minutes to thicken it up a bit and warm everything through.

Seemed like more of a stew than a casserole....Might be the language barrier between the Brits and us Yanks  ;)

Doesn't matter....this was delicious...I've been trying to work miso into the diet more...and this dish allows me to do that in such a healthy way....

Definitely serve over brown rice....healthy and hearty....
