Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the potatoes

Heat the oven to 425°F.
  • Scrub or peel the potatoes; cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Cut each half lengthwise into ½-inch-thick slices, the slices crosswise into ½-inch cubes.
In a large sauce pot, add the potatoes and enough lightly salted water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, reduce to a vigorous simmer, and cook until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the potatoes to a medium bowl. Add the mustard vinaigrette, toss to coat, then cover to keep warm. Set aside the pot of water for the tempeh.
While the potatoes cook, prepare the asparagus.


Prep and cook the asparagus

  • Snap off the woody ends from the asparagus.
  • Zest and juice the lemon, keeping the zest and juice separate. [Zest both lemons; juice 1 lemon. Save the remaining zested lemon.]
On a sheet pan, toss the asparagus with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil and season with salt and pepper. Spread in an even layer and roast until lightly browned and tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove the asparagus from the oven, add the lemon zest and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice, and toss to coat; season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the asparagus roasts, prepare the tempeh.


Start the tempeh

  • Cut the tempeh into ½-inch pieces.
Add the tempeh to the pot of water used for the potatoes and bring to a boil. Cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain the tempeh, transfer to a plate, and pat dry with a paper towel; season with salt and generously with pepper.
While the tempeh cooks, finish the potatoes.


Finish the potatoes

  • Trim the ends from the celery; cut the celery lengthwise into thin slices, then crosswise into ⅛-inch pieces.
Add the celery to the bowl with the potatoes and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Crisp the tempeh croutons

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons [2 to 3 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the tempeh and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.


Transfer the potato salad and asparagus to individual plates. Top the asparagus with the tempeh croutons and serve.
