Vine and Dine - Happy and Sad

I was a bit late to the Vine and Dine party, but better so than never, right?
So that is a happy point. A sad one goes to the fact that this may be the last such event.
On the upside, Tami from Vegan Appetite, the genius behind V&D, allowed me to pick the recipe this time! Score.
The entree comes from American Vegan Kitchen and is The Tempeh Stroganoff Stuffed Potatoes.
I have cooked a lot from this book, and love it. The spice blend alone is worth the price of admission.
The fact that it's author is no other than the awesome blogger of Vegan Appetite, makes the book even more valuable.

Okay, on to the cooking and eating, which is what this is all about. And of course the drinking too!
Having some challenges finding vegan sour cream, I ended up making my own using Bryanna's recipe. Let me just say that after this, I will be making my own whenever it's called for. So good, so easy.

I did cut the recipe in half, portion control or something of that nature...
Above are the potatoes, scooped, and ready to be filled.
Most of the stuffing ingredients waiting to come together. The tempeh was outstanding, and I can see making this on it's own.
All dressed up and ready for the oven.

The final meal, with a shout out for the book too!
The side dish is a simple kale stir fry with hot sauce and some tamari.
Overall, outstanding meal!

For the wine, we went with a local white from Meridian. It was nice and dry, smooth, and completely complemented the main dish.


  1. Vine and Dine wouldn't have been the same without you. Thank you for being a part of it.

  2. So you are the responsible party for picking this! Nice choice! We really loved it. If you hadn't have halved the recipe (smart move, btw) you would have discovered that you could have kept eating the stuff even after it was cold the next day. I should have portion controlled, too :)

  3. Thank you both, my two favorite vegan bloggers, for, well, everything!
    VA, there actually was stuffing left over, hurray, and you are so correct, it was awesome cold!
