Ingredients

  • For the salad:
  • 1 (8 oz.) package tempeh
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • Dash of smoked paprika
  • Salt and Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 ears fresh corn
  • 1/3 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)

  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Juice from 1 lemon (~3 Tablespoons)
  • Dash of smoked paprika

Instructions

  1. Cut the tempeh into thin triangles. Heat oil in a skillet and add the tempeh. Cook over medium heat until they begin to brown.
  2. Sprinkle the tempeh pieces with the coriander, turmeric, cumin, salt, pepper, and paprika. Toss to coat and then transfer to a bowl.
  3. Add the corn to the same pan. (If it is sticking, you may need to add about 1/2 tablespoon oil at this point.) Heat corn in the skillet, stirring frequently for about 2-3 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  4. Add the pepitas to the same pan and cook for 2-3 minutes or until aromatic and lightly browned.
  5. To make the dressing, combine all the ingredients together in a bowl and whisk to combine. Add more water if needed to reach desired consistency.
  6. To assemble the salads, divide lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, corn, and pepitas between 4 bowls. Top with tempeh and tahini dressing.
