Vegan Mexican TVP


Mex TVPThis was my first experiment with using the hRecipe microformat plugin. The plugin does not include a photo field, although the full hRecipe specification has provisions for a graphic. I failed to capture the moment last night when I made this, and this dish isn’t much of a looker anyway. The plugin seems to break the background gradient in my current theme, but I don’t care that much because this theme is getting a bit long in the tooth and I’ll replace it with a more up-to-date one some day when I have a couple of hours. (Don’t hold your breath!) The plugin did not automatically tag the ingredients, nor number the steps on my first go. I had to go back and edit the raw HTML, because I didn’t see a way to revise once you insert a recipe via the plugin. I’m guessing there is a way to make it do that in the first place and I should have RTFM. Oh well, I’m a very early adopter of the plugin, and it’s certainly better than nothing! Let’s see how the search engines like it.
