READER'S COMMENT:
"This was GREAT and so high protein. I made it exactly as written. Well worth the calories and very filling. I actually think, as another commenter noted, it would do well as six servings instead of four. I almost couldn't finish mine. "

Tempeh for the Win

I never thought I'd use the words "delicious" and "tempeh" in the same sentence, but this is a delicious tempeh dish!

Had to go out of my way to buy sesame oil and tempeh -- but it was worth it! This salad is good hot or cold and the scallions really add a depth of flavor. Shared it with some coworkers at work and they all agreed -- this salad is tops!

Quick, Vegetarian

Great meatless twist on classic rice bowl

I mixed with 1 tsp of soy sauce and 1 tsp of rice vinegar with 1.5 tbsp of honey and poured over the crumbled tempeh and marinated it for a couple of hours. Then I used 1 tbsp of honey for the tempeh sauce. This came out so great. I've had this recipe in my account for so long and finally decided to try it and so glad I did. Definitely a keeper.

A perfect "meatless Monday" lunch!

My guy was not thrilled when I told him we should try to go meatless one day/week, but actually really liked this dish. I didn't have tempeh on hand so instead I pressed extra firm tofu inbetween towels (to remove moisture) and crumbled it into the pan. I prefer tempeh since it is less processed, though more calories than tofu, but the tofu substitute worked really well. I'm going to reduce the honey next time, as another comment suggests, because I found it to be a little too sweet (strange since I have a sweet tooth). I didn't try it warm, just chilled, since I made it the night before for lunch. It was perfect like that.

Easy/fast, relatively small ingredients list
