The Dec/Jan issue of satya had a really tasty looking recipe for tempeh pasties with a spiked mustard sauce, so I thought I'd give it a try. The pasties were great, but I think I'd adapt it a little bit more next time, it was a little grainy for my tastes. The recipe makes a lot of pasties so we have some in our freezer for later.
The spiked mustard sauce was... well... mustardy. Far too mustardy, even for a mustard sauce. I will definitely not be making that sauce again. The pasties would be fine with a little bit of ketchup, there was really no need for the ridiculously mustardy sauce!
Onto the battle of the potatoes now. Gary and I nearly came to blows (not really) yesterday trying to negotiate which kind of potatoes to have with the pasties. He wanted mashed, whereas I'm a great lover of really crispy roast potatoes. I ended up making both to diffuse the situation.
Leave me a comment saying which kind you think is best. Just so you know, the correct answer is roast potatoes.
