Vegan “Greek Salad” With Tempeh & Amaranth a.k.a. Feta Who!

Hi lovies!

<3

Believe me when I say that there is ALWAYS a plant-based way to change up just about any recipe! All you need is a bit of imagination.

To make up for the protein, I swapped the traditional feta cheese for smoked onion tempeh + threw in a tbsp. of cooked amaranth to add some fibre, more protein, carbs, iron, calcium + vitamin C!

I kept the dressing super simple to let the flavour of the veggies shine & boom… a vegan Greek salad was born! It’s fresh, crispy, light, summery & contains a great balance of healthy fats, carbs, fibre, antioxidants + plant protein!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 12-15 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small cucumber, sliced
  • 1 shallot, sliced
  • 1 tbsp. dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup smoked onion tempeh, diced
  • 1 tbsp. cooked amaranth (quinoa, buckwheat, lentils or brown rice are great too!)
  • Juice from one lemon
  • 2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • Himalayan pink salt + black pepper to taste

HOW?:

  • Add all the salad ingredients to a small mixing bowl.
  • Season the salad with the dressing ingredients & toss to coat.
