Hi! Hi! Hi!

I’M SO EXCITED! I know I’ve mentioned Effin’ Birds on my blog at least once before but I don’t think I’ve ever really talked about how much I love them!  My brother-in-law, Tom, sent me their website earlier this year and I was immediately obsessed.Effin' Birds Giveaway-www.roseyrebecca.com

If you know me, you know that my sense of humor is incredibly silly, which is why Effin’ Birds is perfect for me. Their products feature pictures of birds alongside ridiculous, unnecessarily vulgar phrases.  There’s absolutely NO POINT to it and that’s why I think it’s amazing and hilarious.

Effin' Birds Giveaway-www.roseyrebecca.comI shouldn’t say there’s no point because Effin’ Birds has a particular set of products called The Audubon Collection, and for every product sold from that collection, they donate $5 to the John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove in Pennsylvania, which focusses on conservation and restoration of wildlife habitats, specifically focussing on the needs of birds.

When I reached out to Effin’ Birds last month to see if they’d be interested in having me host a giveaway, they not only said yes, but generously agreed to let me choose THREE WINNERS.

Smiling Hara Tempeh Giveaway (CLOSED)

UPDATE (4/30/16): This giveaway is now closed. I will announce the winners on Monday, May 2. Thank you for entering and stay tuned for future giveaways! 

Three Reasons To Be Happy:

  1. It’s Friday!
  2. It’s my mom’s birthday (Happy Birthday, Mom!!)
  3. It’s time for a GIVEAWAY!

Veggie Lo Mein with Smiling Hara Sweet Miso Ginger Tempeh- Rosey Rebecca Blog

A giveaway for what, you ask? You’ll just have to keep reading to find out.

One of my very favorite things about Asheville’s food scene is that nearly every local restaurant offers not only one but several great vegetarian/vegan dishes.  Another great thing about Asheville is that the local businesses support each other by using each other’s products.  It didn’t take long after we moved here last September to notice that many of the restaurants use local tempeh made by Smiling Hara Tempeh as a vegetarian/vegan protein option. It also didn’t take long for me to become completely hooked.

Case in point:

Not only have I been enjoying Smiling Hara Tempeh out at restaurants, I’ve also been making it at home!  I’m not the biggest tofu fan, but I’d eat tempeh any day!

Smiling Hara Tempeh, Rosey Rebecca Blog

If you’ve never heard of Tempeh, here is what my good friend Wikipedia has to say about it:

Tempeh is a traditional soy product originating from Indonesia. It is made by a natural culturing and controlled fermentation process that binds soybeans into a cake form…Like tofu, tempeh is made from soybeans, but it 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. It has a firm texture and an earthy flavor which becomes more pronounced as it ages.

What I didn’t realize until I found Smiling Hara, though,  is that tempeh doesn’t have to be made from soy; it can be made from several different legumes. Smiling Hara carries a Traditional Soy Tempeh and a delicious Sweet Miso Ginger Tempeh, but they also make several delicious soy-free varieties, including Black Bean, Black Eyed Pea, and, wait for it, Smoked Salt and Pepper Peanut HEMPEH. Yes, I just said Hempeh: Tempeh made from Hemp Seed. Go figure.

From Smiling Hara’s website:

Here at Smiling Hara, sustainability permeates every aspect of our philosophy. We are committed to using only the highest quality ingredients, grown without GMOs and sourced as locally as possible…Our goal is to educate the general public to the benefits of unpasteurized and low pasteurized tempeh, and bring it into the national spotlight. We are in the process of creating a buzz around tempeh and forging a new trend in the health food world which will contribute to the health and nutrition of our customers, as well as the state of our local economy.

Smiling Hara is run by a husband and wife team named Chad and Sarah, and Sarah and I became friends on Instagram after I posted this picture of Aslan trying to eat my Buffalo Tempeh one night.

It was probably after my 3,000th post about her tempeh that Sarah and I connected through email and she offered to send me some of their other products to try out.

I literally jumped up and down when I opened the box.  While I have yet to try the Smoked Salt & Pepper Peanut Hempeh, I ripped that Sweet Miso Ginger Tempeh open last night.

I whipped up a quick and easy Veggie Lo Mein, pan-fried the tempeh and threw it right on top.

BAM. Easy and delicious.

In case you missed it, here it is again…posed and ready for its close up.
