Looking for a quick, delicious and energy-boosting snack? Tempeh is made from fermented soybeans and provide a good source of protein, fibre, iron and calcium. The dressing combines miso and tahini, which adds a lovely salty umami flavour to the tempeh logs.
Vive Health Recipe Book
1 pkg tempeh – sliced into 8 logs
Small drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
White Miso Dressing (see below)
Heat the old in your saute pan.
Dip about half the tempeh log into the miso dressing – it should coat it nicely. If your dressing is too thin, try adding in another spoonful of miso paste.
Lay the dipped tempeh logs on a hot pan, and then sprinkle each log with a few dashes of black pepper. Allow the logs to cook for about a minute on each side or until all the sides are caramelized and browned. Do not overly-blacken the tempeh as this will burn the delicate flavours.
Remove from the pan and transfer to a plate. Set aside to cool for use in wraps or salads or just eat them on their own!
