Peppery Tempeh Salad

Peppery Tempeh Salad
Heather Nicholds, C.H.N.

The tempeh makes a meal out of a salad, and the greens give the body enzymes and nutrients to help break down the dense nutrients of the bean. Top it with some ginger, which helps stimulate the digestive system, and you have a excellent source of energy without weighing you down.

  • 2 large handfuls of greens (watercress, spinach, mizuna.)
  • ½ cucumber, thinly sliced

  2. Mix together the first 7 ingredients for the dressing, whisking or blending in a food processor. Season to taste.
  3. Place the greens on the plates, top with the tempeh and cucumber, drizzle the dressing and sprinkle the sesame seeds on top.
