Recipe: tempeh gyro salad

I’m obsessed with tempeh. I find it horrifying and satisfying, alternately.

I think about ways to change its awful leftover tongue taste, like a bad ex-boyfriend.

My latest iteration: gyro tuh-zee-kee salad

tempeh gyro salads

  • 1/2 tempeh log, sliced laterally and marinated in tahini, a minced garlic clove, lemon squeeze, salt and pepper, 1 hour
  • 4 romaine leaves
  • 1/2 small purple onion
  • 4 grape tomatoes
  • salt and pepper + garlic, minced
  • cilantro garnish

Heat grill pan until warm and brush with olive oil and minced garlic.

Saute  sliced tempeh 3 minutes each side; pour leftover marinade over top.

Taste. Cringe. Taste. Smile.

Dream of tempeh.
