This dish tastes like baked chicken and vegetables. So great that I tricked my uncle that it was REALLY meat!

I am a vegetarian and really enjoy this dish. I have been making it for several years now. I only make minor adjustments. I skip the leeks and shallots and substitute with onions. I am sure they are a nice touch, but I don't keep those items on hand, and they make the recipe quite costly. I do use 2 tablespoons of tamari for a little extra flavor. I also suggest extra zucchini, mostly to give the dish more contrast in colors. I like to use halved grape tomatoes. Some reviewers have mentioned that this dish does not taste like chicken. That is correct. Tempeh does not taste like a meat. It has its own texture and takes on the flavor of what it is cooked with. You have to like tempeh to enjoy this dish. It is a staple in a vegetarian's diet. One last comment. I do not see how this dish would serve 6 people as the main course, and since it has tempeh, it is a main course dish. I would say it serves 3-4 as a main dish. Maybe I just have a heartier appetite, but that is how I see it.

Well, I've always thought that comparing foods like tempeh and tofu to meat is somewhat insulting for the veggie soy foods. Tempeh shouldn't be enjoyed as a meat substitute, but rather on its own merits. With that in mind, I think that this was a really yummy dish. It's nothing like chicken or any other meat, but it's a very good tempeh dish. I ramped up the spice a bit, but I tend to do that on everything I make. My husband also loves this dish; he requested that I add it to my "frequently cooked" list!

This dish made me realize I just don't like tempeh. HOWEVER, I brought it with me to my carnivorous family's Thanksgiving, just for me, I am the ONLY veggie, and at our buffet-style dinner, by the time I reached my tempeh, it was nearly gone. After dinner, all my aunts and uncles remarked what an intriguing lamb dish I'd made and how they'd really enjoyed it. So for a tempeh lover, this must be great.
