i decided to give tempeh tagine another recipe-less whirl tonight and it just didn't quite cut it. it tastes fine, with all the right spices, but it just hasn't come together in quite the same way it did the other weak. last time the spices were complex and bold. this time, the spices are present and correct, but the flavor doesn't grab a hold of me. it's a bit disappointing.
but it was still fun to make. all those veggies are so colorful and letting everything simmer for half an hour fills up the apartment with the most amazing smell.
