Vegan Caesar salad with tempeh croutons
Diabetes-Friendly, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegan, Mediterranean
Crispy tempeh croutons top this fast and easy main-course Caesar salad made with massaged kale and radicchio.
In your bag
- ½ pound tempeh
- 1 head organic lettuce
- 1 head organic radicchio
- 3 ounces organic grape or Sungold tomatoes
- 1 organic lemon
- 3 ounces organic shredded kale or other leafy greens
- Sun Basket vegan Caesar dressing (almond milk - cashew butter - fresh lemon juice - Dijon mustard - capers - vegan Worcestershire - kosher salt - nutritional yeast - fresh garlic - black pepper - onion powder)
- Sun Basket vegan “Parmesan” (nutritional yeast - almond meal)
To add depth of flavor to the vegan “Parmesan” topping, put it in a dry small frying pan (preferably nonstick) over medium-high heat, season lightly with salt, and toast, stirring constantly, until fragrant and slightly golden, about 1 minute. Let cool before using. For spicy croutons, toss the crisped tempeh with a little cayenne or your favorite seasoning.
A cousin of tofu, tempeh originated in Indonesia and is made from lightly fermented whole soybeans, which means it has more fiber and protein than its relative, plus a subtly sweet, earthy flavor when cooked.
