Tempeh Salad Sandwich

READY IN: 35mins
Top Review by ranch-girl

My vegetarian daughter loves tempeh salad sandwiches - she prefers them to egg salad. This is a great option for packing a vegetarian lunch. Tempeh supplies a lot of protein and fiber in addition to being delicious. I don't grate the tempeh, just mash it (crumble it) with a fork. I generally poach it in water with soy sauce and garlic rather than steaming it. Anyone would like these, not just vegetarians!
