Tempeh “Tuna” Salad

For someone that can't stand the thought of seafood or the smell of the ocean, I am oddly obsessed with mock tuna salads, especially in summer. Every time I am at a new restaurant and see a mock tuna salad on the menu I have to try it. My obsession finally got to the point where I knew it was time to make my own version so I could have it whenever I wanted. So I did.

I have eaten this tempeh "tuna" salad every week for the past six weeks... in cold sandwiches, on top of romaine salads, and grilled in flat bread. And I am still not tired of it. My guess is that it will become a favorite recipe of yours as well.

I used tempeh to replace the "tuna" in this recipe. Tempeh is cooked and fermented soy beans that have had a bacteria starter added to them and then were held at 86 degrees for 24 - 36 hours. Tempeh is a very digestible form of soy and is full of protein - making it a perfect entree in a vegan meal. Tempeh has a very unique taste and I have often heard it described as "nutty," "earthy," or similar to the flavor of mushrooms. I love the flavor of it mixed in with the creamy "mayo" and crunchy celery in this recipe. Yum!
