Vegan Fesenjān

This amazingly delicious Plant Based Fesenjān, pronounced Fesanjoon, is a dish that I have been making for my family for many years now. Fesenjān is a Persian stew typically made with some kind of meat cooked in a sauce made of ground walnuts and pomegranate. I have adapted this recipe to be Plant Based Vegan by using tempeh as the “meat” and added some of our favorite veggies to make it even more hearty. The sauce is an explosion of sweet, tart and rich flavor that will make your tastebuds sing.
