Smoked Tempeh and Eggplant Muffaletta with Olive and Okra Relish
(from "Artful Vegan")
"Cajun" Green Beans
(seared/steamed green beans with cajun spices)
The muffaletta sandwiches are from "Artful Vegan" -- First you marinate the tempeh and eggplant for an hour, then it's smoked (with hickory) for 20 minutes, then baked with the marinade (clove, cinnamon, allspice, pepper, salt, garlic, tamari, balsamic vinegar, agave, veg stock).
The relish is roughly an equal mix of minced kalamata olives, pickled okra and some of our homemade pickles (in place of the cucumbers called for in the recipe).
The bread is place under a broiler after being brushed with an equal mixture of olive oil and nutritional yeast. Then you add the relish on the bottom, then the tempeh and eggplant, and top with dijon mustard and place back under the broiler for another two minutes.
Add sliced tomato and red onion and close the sandwich (gently).
