Re: Franz marketing sleaze

When I get paper junkmail, I don't know of any satisfying response,
but when something really irrelevant and gratuitous arrives
electronically, I enjoy responding in kind as follows:

Thank you for your fascinating message!

Perhaps you will enjoy this recipe for stir-fry kale and tempeh:

Stir-Fry Kale and Tempeh

6 oz tempeh, cubed
1-1/2 C kale, coarsely chopped (or hand torn),	[ either red or green ]
	toughest part of stems removed
1-1/2 C sliced cabbage (as for Mu Shu)		[ red cabbage is colorful ]
1/3 C chopped celery
1 med carrot, coarsely chopped
2 T chopped green onion				[ green and white parts ]
1 T minced garlic
2 tsp minced ginger

peanut oil for cooking

	2 tsp hoisin sauce	[ for a lighter sauce, use soy or Tamari ]
	2 tsp hot chili paste	[ I like garlic-chili paste ]
	1 T rice vinegar

Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a wok at high heat. Fry cabbage and
celery 45 seconds, then remove from wok. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil. 
Fry carrots 1 minute, then remove from wok. 

Reduce wok heat to medium-high.  Heat 2 teaspoons of oil. Fry 
kale until tender, then remove from wok.

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in wok. Add ginger and garlic, fry for a 
few seconds, then add onion and tempeh. Cook for 1-1/2 minutes, 
or until tempeh starts to brown.

Return all ingredients to wok and heat. Add sauce and mix well.

Serve over rice. Makes two servings.

Note: If you wish, you can make this hotter by frying small,
      whole dried chilis in the oil before adding the garlic and
      ginger. You could also use more chili paste.
