Smoked Tempeh, Portobello, and Apple Salad
1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce
1/4 cup Liquid Smoke
1 tablespoon agave nectar
1 teaspoon ginger
A splash of water
Mixed spring greens (a couple handfuls)
1/2 package of tempeh, cubed
1 portobello mushroom, sliced
1/2 apple, sliced
3 cherry tomatoes
1/2 cucumber, sliced
1 carrot, chopped
A small handful of slivered almonds
Chopped avocado (optional, but an excellent addition)
Combine all the marinade ingredients.
Put the sliced mushrooms and cubed tempeh into the marinade. Let them marinate for about 20 minutes.
In a frying pan, sauté the marinade, mushrooms, and tempeh until cooked through.
With a slotted spoon, remove the tempeh and mushrooms and toss with everything else.
Dress with balsamic vinaigrette and enjoy.
