TEMPEH 'BACON':

  • 1 brick of henry’s tempeh
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

DRESSING:

Instructions
 

  • Preheat an oven to 400F.

  • Slice tempeh into strips and then in half. Combine soy sauce, maple syrup, garlic powder and tempeh in a bowl and toss. Place on a baking sheet and cook for 7 minutes, flip and cook another 7 minutes or until starting to crisp. Set aside to cool.
  • In a large bowl, place the chopped kale and add the juice of half a lemon. Using your hands, massage the kale to help break it down. Massage for 1-2 minutes. Add the romaine lettuce, hemp hearts and red onion.
  • Add some of the dressing and toss to combine. Add more dressing until it is as dressed as you like it. Top with the tempeh bacon and some vegan parmesan. Enjoy!
