Tempeh with peanut dipping sauce
Tempeh is one of my favorite things to keep on hand in my fridge. It's loaded with protein, has a great nutty flavor, and is a cinch to prepare.
This was actually one of the appetizers I served my family during the superbowl. The left side of the plate is the pan-fried tempeh, and the right side are frozen Gardein chicken bites (both of which were great!)
Slice into strips. Then brown in a non-stick pan coated with a little olive oil until lightly browned (as shown above).
Peanut Dipping Sauce:
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup water
3 T crushed toasted peanuts (not necessary if you use chunky peanut butter)
2 T tamari soy sauce
2T fresh lime juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1 T minced ginger
Blend all ingredients. Yield: 1 1/2 cups
