TEMPEH "CHICKEN" STRIPS
Tempeh is a plant-based protein originating from Indonesia. It is made from fermented soy that has been pressed together to form a cake-like patty. It has a mild nutty flavor and takes on whatever flavors you are cooking with. Tempeh is also loaded with prebiotics, which is a type of fibre that provides fuels for the healthy gut bacteria and can improve digestive health. This recipe is also vegan and a family favorite!
1 block Tempeh
3 tbsp tahini
3 tbsp water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic power
3/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
For the best results, slice the tempeh into 1cm slices and soak overnight in 1 cup of veggie broth
