CASHEW-TEMPEH CHICKENLESS SALAD


This delicious salad doesn't really mimic chicken salad, because it's so much tastier, and much better for you! But I didn't know what else to call it. I've been experimenting with recipes that include cashews because I snagged four huge bags of them at only $2.99 a pound at my local salvage grocery (they run $8.99 per pound at the grocery store)! I've also been enjoying a lot of cashew no-milkshakes. But you can leave the cashews out of this recipe if you can't afford them. It will still be super nummy. If you don't want to go the standard sandwich route, try it on crackers. My daughter loves it! (See photo below for proof.)



Here's the recipe...


1 8 ounce package tempeh (I used organic 3-grain)
1/2 cup raw or dry-roasted cashews, coarsely chopped
2 stalks celery, minced
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 carrot, grated
1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Dash of cayenne
Salt and pepper to taste
  • Toss ingredients into a bowl, stir, and enjoy!

This recipe is magnificent - I could eat the whole thing myself! I added a teaspoon or so of toasted sesame oil and some sesame seeds. Also had some cucumber and green pepper,so tossed that in too.

Thanks Mio! I'm so glad you enjoyed it.
Adding cucumber sounds really good. I think I will try that next time too!
