This is a Recipe (what's this)


Just as impressive alone as when served between bread as a sandwich filling.

Just as impressive alone as when served between bread as a sandwich filling.


    1 cup tempeh, cubed1/2 cup soy mayonnaise1 stalk celery, finely chopped1/2 medium onion, chopped2 tbsp fresh parsley, minced2 tsp prepared mustard2 tsp Braggs or soy sauce1 garlic clove, crushed and minced


Steam the cubed tempeh for 15 minutes on medium-high heat. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

2. In a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise, celery, pickles, onions, parsley, mustard, Braggs/soy sauce, and garlic with the tempeh and toss lightly.

Serve over toast, as a side dish, as a sandwich filling, or alone.

If you have trouble finding tempeh, you can use firm tofu, but it's not quite as effective.

Makes 4 servings.

    I cut the vegan mayo to 1/4 cup and added the juice of 1/4 lemon. Delicious! I served it over romaine lettuce and sliced tomato. ALSO PLEASE NOTE! The nutrition info is wrong. The recipe author ONLY entered about 1/4 of each ingredient, so the totals show 1/4 of the recipe. - 11/9/12

    Wow, so much drama over a simple recipe. If you are a die-hard omni expecting it to perfectly replicate actual chicken, YES, you're going to be disappointed. However, as a vegan, I appreciate this. Re: tofu confusion, you can make vegan mayo using silken tofu. Bonus - less fat than store-bought. - 4/6/12

    We LOVE this stuff! Try making my version and see what you think-- vegenaise, curry powder, a little vegesal (salt sub), cashews, and craisins. I have to hide this from my teenagers if I want any. Thanks to OP for letting others know how great tempeh is. - 11/17/11
