I discovered tempeh the other day when I was at Trader Joe's.... (Pardon me if I'm late to the party) ;) But for those of you that don't know, it's a vegan product, packed with protein. I got the 3-grain Tempeh. This is made from soybeans, organic brown rice, organic barley, & organic millet. I wasn't quite sure how to use it but I thought I could use it like I have used tofu, and that's how it works! You can bake it, saute it, grill it, do whatever you want with it - or eat it as it comes straight out of the package. I made a wrap with it for lunch yesterday and it was quite yummy. Here's what I did....
1 high fiber low carb tortilla (I used Ole Extreme Wellness)
1 wedge lite cheese (I used happy farms - you could also use laughing cow)
flat leaf spinach
1/3 package tempeh - sliced
1tbsp fat free ranch dressing (for dipping sauce)
Heat oven to 'broil'... Spread cheese wedge onto tortilla - place tempeh on tortilla in single layer. Lay on baking sheet, and broil for 2-3 minutes. Remove from oven, and top with spinach & horseradish mustard. Fold - enjoy.
