Tempeh Salad

tempeh-salad.jpg

This salad is quite delicious, and the essential ingredient is tempeh. Tempeh is a fermented soy bean product which comes in a solid cake. It is hard to describe the taste, but it is a little nut like. Tempeh is available in health food and asian grocery shops.

This salad is nice if arranged on individual serving plates. This recipe only uses one packet of tempeh, and will make enough salad for 2 hungry people.

Salad Ingredients:
1 packet tempeh
lettuce
1 large carrot
1/2 cucumber
1 stick celery
1 tomato

Dressing Ingredients:
Lemon juice
Olive Oil
Garlic, chopped
Pepper

Garnish:
Spring onion
Roasted cashews
Coriander

Method:

Cut tempeh in half length wise, and fry in pan until golden.

You can add fish sauce for a bit of extra salt and colour. Slice into strips and cool.

Tear the lettuce leaves, wash well and dry. Grate carrot.

Slice other salad ingredients into desired shapes and arrange on plate, topped with the tempeh.

Chop the garnishes and place on top.

Toss the dressing ingredients in a container, and pour over the salad just before serving.
