Here we toss tempeh with a honey-sesame sauce and serve it over quinoa and shredded carrots for a satisfying vegetarian meal. Serve with sesame breadsticks.

"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. "

Stuck to the exact recipe. Delicious, easy...and even my carnivorous fiance liked it! Definitely a new favorite.

Post Workout Protein Bomb

Loved this recipe! I had a tough weightlifting workout tonight and needed a protein bomb to rebuild my muscle. I had planned to prepare according to recipe but at 930 at night the prospect of preparing quinoa didn't sound fun. Instead I put the carrot slaw and tempeh over a microwaveable dish of thai jasmine rice. Prep time was well under 30 minutes and it tasted DELICIOUS!

quick, delicious
Another option for the carrot salad

We love this recipe as written, but recently discovered another way to use the carrot salad. Take a slice of multi-grain bread, top with a thin layer of your favorite hummus, and then a generous serving of the carrot salad. Great open-faced sandwich option for a summer lunch.

Quick, healthy (or healthful)
loved this!

I loved this recipe! It tasted great and was easy to make. Even if you like meat or have never tried a meatless dish this is a good one to try. One thing to note is it took me about an hour to prep and cook. Not terribly long but need to put the time aside.

Probably My Favorite Recipe from this website so far

My boyfriend and I made this dish tonight for dinner and it was easy to cook and very tasty & filling. Will definitely make again. Oh, and I made no substitutions except I ran out of sesame oil so I used some tahini (sesame paste) I had on hand. Seriously try this recipe guys!

SUPER delicious, easy to make, very healthy
