Mock Chicken Salad

Eating less meat has been linked to lower incidence of cancer and heart disease. This is a great dish to try and reduce your meat intake. It is especially great to take on a picnic or the hot summer when a meat dish will go bad (or sour) faster.

For information on this check out the Campbell’s The China Study or this link:

Tempeh is a natural food product made by cooking and then fermenting soybeans over a few days process which requires much technical expertise. Thank goodness for Hearty Vegan’s Organic line! The result is a meaty tasting concoction great for use as a meat substitute. I also like to slice, batter, and fry for a taste just like chicken fingers.
