recipe: tempeh "tuna" salad

this is realllly good! i love myself a nice _____salad sandwich, i used to eat tuna salad sandwiches all the time but now that i eat a pretty much plant-based (vegan) diet, this Thempeh "Tuna" Salad (vegan) is a superb stand-in. the day i made this recipe i didn't have celery or red onion, but both would make a great addition if you like a little more bite! eat it in a sandwich, on crackers, in a salad, etc! Tempeh is healthy - read more about it here!

Tempeh "Tuna" Salad (vegan)

What You Need:

  • package of tempeh - i like the Turtle Island Foods tempeh because they have the five grain which has other grains and seeds. Trader Joe's has a nice tempeh too!
  • 3/4 cup or so of finely chopped carrots
  • two tablespoons of chopped fresh dill
  • two tablespoons of chopped fresh chives
  • 1/2 cup of vegan mayo more or less depending on how creamy you want it - i like Follow Your Heart brand the best
  • 1 tablespoon of capers
  • optional: celery, red onion chopped
  • salt and pepper
Do It:
  1. if you have a small food processor that will make your life a lot easier - otherwise work those arm muscles and chop all your veggies and herbs. i finely minced my carrots in the food processor so they created almost a paste that made the tempeh salad that much more smear-able.
  2. with your clean hands, crumble up your tempeh into nice small chunks.
  3. mix your chopped veggies, herbs, capers and mayo all together in a mixing bowl and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. spread on some nice sprouted grain bread with a little mustard, lettuce and tomato or eat it on crackers or in a salad! yummmmmz
