If you are looking for a dish that looks good, taste good and that can be prepared in 30 minutes, then CONTINUE TO READ THIS POST.
In all honesty, Monday was one of those days where I just didn’t feel like cooking (GASP). I just wanted to quickly make something rather than ordering Dominos (which I knew I was going to regret eventually If I ate the whole pizza to myself) .Nevertheless, I remembered that I bought tempeh specifically for this recipe and thought to myself. “Well, why not give it a try” and thank goodness I did.
Personally, I think the way how food is presented can be an important indicator in regards to how food is perceived and accepted, especially in children. However, there are some foods no matter how you present mashed lentils it would look hideous, but would still taste great nonetheless.
This recipe was adapted from the website Eating Well. In this recipe, I tried adding zucchini and red capsicum which turned out great as it appealing colours to the dish.
The texture of tempeh is similar to meat, so this dish could be a great alternative if you are looking for a vegetarian meal. While my brother does not like tofu or soybeans at ALL!! he thought the tempeh was pork before eating and finished the salad with no complaints!!!! (even though he knew it was tempeh).
One of the best parts of making this salad was plating it up.
First the quinoa
Then the carrots and zucchini
The honey sesame tempeh
Spring Onions (scallion)
Last but not least, red Capsicum and Chilli. It looked too good to be mixed. However, another great part of this salad was mixing all of the flavours together. 🙂 Something tells me that this will be definitely be made again this week :).
