Places– of Charm

We’re going out for an early dinner at Native Foods Restaurant.  Ours is located in the District, on the boarder of Irvine and Tustin.  I’m excited about what I plan to order (again!)– The Gandhi Bowl– blackened tempeh on a bed of jasmine and brown rice, greens, steamed veggies, wild curry sauce, cranberries and green onions.   Native is not necessarily Native American– just natural, native food.

    That’s a good one– ginger marinated and seared tofu spears over organic brown rice, steamed veggies, and organic greens in out tangy freshly roasted peanut sauce. And, it’s under $9 like just about everything.

    Yum. Rob and I should branch out. We always get two of the Rockin’ Moroccan. It’s grilled chicken with spicy ginger Moroccan marinade, grilled veggies and quinoa. Topped with currants and tasty toasted almonds. It’s 9.95, a higher priced entree.

    They are similar, Mary Alice. Like tofu, tempeh (which originated in Indonesia) is made from soybeans, but tempeh is a whole soybean product with different nutritional characteristics and textural qualities. Tempeh’s fermentation process and its retention of the whole bean give it a higher content of protein, dietary fiber, and vitamins compared to tofu, as well as firmer texture and stronger flavor.
