Tempeh bacon, avocado and chickpeas turn this salad into a protein-packed main dish. We like LightLifes Organic Tempeh Fakin Bacon Strips. Meal Plan: To round out this salad, serve with some crusty rolls. Its also great alongside veggie burgers.
Make Vinaigrette: In food processor or blender, combine carrot juice, tofu, tamari, tahini, vinegar and oil and process until blended. Transfer to bowl and stir in grated carrots. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
Lightly coat small, nonstick pan with cooking spray. Add diced “bacon” and cook, stirring often, until browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer tempeh to plate.
In large bowl, combine lettuce, tomato, avocado, chickpeas, cucumber, endive and 1/2 cup dressing. Toss to mix. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Sprinkle with tempeh “bacon” and serve.
