Vietnamese Tempeh Mango Salad

Vietnamese Tempeh Salad With Mango! A Healthy, Light Salad That'S Gluten Free And Vegan.

Oh. My. Goodness.

This recipe makes 4-6 servings, I may have eaten it in 2-3.

It’s THAT good. Or I’m that much of a little piggy. Either way, I could eat this every, single day.

This is the tempeh that I wish everyone would try first. Before the words ‘I don’t like tempeh’ come out of their mouths. This is tempeh! Soaked in a smoky, sweet pineapple marinade and baked in the juice. This tempeh comes out with in-your-face flavor and perfect texture.

Then you add mango. And spicy jalapeños. And all craziness ensues.
