Karel Cast Fri Nov 3 Where is the Wonder?

Karel’s been appreciating a lot more recently and wonders, where is the wonder? We are so busy hating everything, that we can no longer see the wonder in so much around us. Also, The Sonos Play 1 arrives and we unbox it. Is it easy to set up? We’ll see. Remember, Karel is on Vocal Rest all next week, back Nov. 13.

VIDEO: Karel Cast Thursday Nov 2 California More Uaffordable Than Ever, Tax Code Won’t Care

1-As California becomes more unaffordable, will Republicans kill housing interest tax credit and destroy the middle class home dream?

2-Astros win, but I don’t get organized sports…truly. Million dollar salaries to play a game, no allegiance to any city or team any more…what’s the attraction?

3- Change …

4-Really Delta? Get over it! What’s more abusive on an airline? Someone quietly, and discreetly, having oral sex, or…crying babies, bad service, horrible snacks or food if you’re lucky, no leg room, no perks, being treated like cattle. But sex is a felony? Come on.

AUDIO: Karel Cast Wed Nov 1 Get Smarter, or Get Left Behind

November 1st, the month of my birth. This morning I recorded an hour show that may never be heard, but the point? We all need to be doing things smarter. Like:

1: Smarter about Terror and The President: NYC: Allah Akbar. God is great. Who cares what an insane person shouts, or their reasons. Why do Arabs, Muslims in particular, get the blame for what radicals and crazies do in their name. More Christian Americans kill other Americans every day than any Islamic. Why are we vilifying Arabs so much? Why do we hate them. Because they hate us? They don’t. No more than we hate each other.

2 Smarter about Sexual Harassment

3 Smarter about dogs, and our relationship with animals

4 Smarter about the upcoming time change, as Maine moves to stop theirs.

Tomato Chipotle Brown Rice and Vegan Sesame Stir Fry with Tempeh

By Charles Karel Bouley

OK, I was hungry so I made this recipe up. If you love it, great, if not, oh well, I adored it. Why did I make it, well, it was lunch on a Sunday. Ember and I could have walked, bussed, üBered, taxied or somehow gotten to lunch; or ordered delivery. But, I’m cheap. Or I’m broke. Or both, I can’t tell the difference any more.

So, in to the kitchen I went. First the rice had to start in the pressure cooker or one pot. If you don’t have one, you should. They are a must have kitchen gadget. I use the Cuisinart Pressure cooker.

Chipotle Arros con Tomato
1/2 cup brown rice
1 1/2 cups water (or vegetable stock)
1 can diced, low sodium or no salt added fire roasted tomatoes (or regular, your call)
2 Chipotle Peppers and their lusciously spicy adobo sauce
Combine in Pressure cooker, seal lid, set pressure release to hold and start on high for 18 minutes. When done, allow to release naturally.

It’s going to take it a minute to build up steam, and you’re going to use that time to chop. Yes, you could use a food processor, a Mandolin or some other device. Sure, but why? You’ve got the time, I’m hoping you’ve got the space, knife and cutting board and it never hurts to practice.

So, while that’s cooking, get chopping:

Vegan Sesame Stir Fry with Tempeh
Serves 2 Prep Time 30 Cook Time 15
2 oz Tempeh, sliced into 1/8″ slices
2 1/3 oz Monterey Mushrooms Whole Baby Bellas, sliced
6 1/2 oz sliced rainbow carrots (one purple, one orange, one yellow works well)
8 oz Sweet Sliced onion
10 spears of Aspargus (thinner the better)
3.7 oz broccoli
1/2 medium heirloom tomato (or regular)
4 pitted dates
1 tablespoon Sesame Oil
Tumeric, until you think you’ve put enough, then more.
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp corriander
1 tsp red chili powder, red pepper powder, crushed chilis (heat)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Sesame Seeds to garnish
Dash cinnamon and nutmeg (yes, I said it)
Once everything is sliced and diced preheat an All Clad or Calphalon large skillet, or the like, and add in the Sesame Oil, careful not to get it too hot as it will smoke.
Add in Carrots, Onion, and Broccoli. Spice them up and sauté for about 10 minutes. Make a spot for the Tempeh and lay it down to grill. Add rest of veggies on the other half of pan and take your stovetop tea kettle and add in about 1/4 cup of water over the veggies. Cover the pan and let cook for about five minutes. Stir. You want veggies tender but firm. Turn Tempeh over Sprinkle with Soy Sauce. Recover pan. Cook four more minutes.

Remove cover of pressure cooker after all pressure released. Stir rice. Serve half the veggies and Tempeh with 1/2 cup of prepared rice. Sprinkle with Sesame Seeds and eat the hell out of it!
