I love eating sandwiches without bread sometimes and these curried tempeh lettuce wraps are perfect. If there's one thing I love, it's Indian food. I think my obsession started when I was in college and trying new foods that my family just didn't serve when I was growing up. Are you learning to love new tastes on a plant-based diet? I read one post from a gal that said she was craving Brussels sprouts!
If you're new to tempeh, it's such a great substitute for any protein in a dish. It's made with fermented soybeans and has a bit of a nutty flavor. In this case, it's easy to crumble and make into this salad recipe. There's something about the crunch and sweetness of apples and raisins in this dish that is lovely. Mango chutney tops it off nicely.

You can steam your tempeh, cut in half, in a steamer basket for a few minutes. It will make the tempeh a little softer and to use. I also hear that it help the tempeh to accept the flavors better. Then, I cut it into smaller pieces and mash it with the back of a fork. Once that's done, you just need to add the rest of the ingredients and mix.
I hope you'll give tempeh a try. Use lettuce for your wrap or make into a sandwich. It's great either way.
