Tempeh Gyro Salad

I was going to make bbq tempeh and ranch tonight but at the very last minute, I decided to try gyro like tempeh. The recipe was inspired by Connies Rawsome Kitchen. Connie has some really great recipes including a gyro seitan. Check out her channel, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqDp2b2CMrPN9bsn7TAch-g. 

Did you know tempeh is a complete protein? There is something like 20 grams per serving too. 

Ok, no the tempeh does not really taste like gyro but man oh man it is really tasty. I was really surprised. I will be having this again for sure. 

Let's get started. Here is what you will need.
1 package of plain tempeh sliced
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp of cumin
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup water
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tbsp dried oregano

If you have a shallow dish, that will work perfectly here. If you are using a storage bag, be gentle with the tempeh. It can be fragile. 

Mix everything from the nutritional yeast to the oregano. Lay the tempeh in the dish and flip the tempeh to make sure it is completed coated. Let it sit for about an hour. 

In a large fry pan on medium heat, brown the tempeh. Should take about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Do not toss that marinade. Makes a great dressing for this salad. 

Tofu Tzatziki
1/2 pkg of silken tofu
1/2 cup or so of shredded and drained cucumber
1/2 to 1 tsp of dried dill
juice of half a lemon
salt to taste
At the end I also added some Adobo seasoning. The one in the navy lid. 

Toss everything in a bowl and whisk to combine. 

The Salad
1 head of romaine chopped
1 tomato chopped
2 kale leaves chopped

Toss to combine. Add as much tempeh as you like, some of the tofu tzatziki and some of that marinade. Enjoy!!!!
