Hawai’i 3: Hawaiian Skewers


Aloha! Here I am with a new recipe, found on a magazine in a supermarket at Paia, which inspired me. During the preparation I was listening to Janis Joplin in Kosmic Blues. Absolutely thrilling.

(serves 4)
2 tablespoons of Tamari sauce
1/2 cup of lemon
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon of allspice
300 gr of tempeh
1 cup of chopped pineapple
1 cup of zucchini sliced, 1 cm thick
1 cup of cherry tomatoes

In a large bowl place the ingredients for the marinade (tamari, lemon juice, garlic, allspice). Then add the other four ingredients (tempeh, pineapple, zucchini, tomatoes) and let them stand in the fridge for two hours.
Then, spit the ingredients in th skewer, alternating them.
once skewered
cook them on a grille, turning once or twice. Brush with marinade and grill 5 minutes longer. Serve while keeping on listening to the tortured soul of JJ.

And now some more pictures. The holyday goes on …
This is our shopping of two days ago, with some ingredients for this recipe. On the left, VegNews, a 100% vegan magazine.

For Nello: she’s not curvy, but very pretty. The hunt goes on …

Leaving the restaurant we found the poet again (see post “Hawai’i 1: Crispy Tofu”). It was our anniversary

…this is the poem that is impressing on the white paper, line after line.

Paia – passer-by
A few days ago, coming back home, beside the entrance door I found a parcel that my friend Moky from Arizona sent me. What a beautiful surprise! I’ll soon post the donuts.

An evening I saw American Idol (a sort of XFactor). And guess who was amongst the jurors, as well as JLo?

I greet all the new chefs with these gardenias, fallen from a tree,  aiming to greet them one by one, upon my return from holiday.
