A good source of protein, tempeh is also easy to prepare. But it’s crucial to steam it ahead of time to soften it.
Meal Plan: Penne pasta tossed with prepared tomato-basil sauce and chocolate sorbet for dessert make great accompaniments.
- Cut tempeh into small chunks. Steam over simmering water 10 minutes.
- Lightly coat large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over high heat, and add tempeh pieces. Cook over high heat until golden and crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Drizzle soy sauce over tempeh, and cook 1 minute. Remove from heat, and let cool.
- In small bowl, combine garlic, lemon juice, 1 Tbs. plus 1 tsp. water, minced olives and Dijon mustard. Toss lettuce, croutons and tempeh in large bowl with dressing. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground pepper, and serve.
