Tempeh fries

If your meal needs just a little extra something in the protein department, but not necessarily a filling main dish, this is a nice choice. It also works well as an appetizer. These fries can be a bit addictive, so you may want to double the recipe if serving hungry tempeh fans. Adapted from Vegan Express. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky. more→

Seitan Gyros

Seitan gyros

Here is a kinder, gentler version of gyros, the Greek meat-on-a-pita classic. Seitan makes a superb stand-in, and the shortcut creamy cucumber dressing gives the entire enterprise a refreshing zip.

Sweet and Smoky Tofu or Tempeh Strips

Smoky tofu and tempeh

Savory, slightly sweet, and as spicy as you choose to make them, these delightfully flavored strips of tofu or tempeh are delicious in wraps and sandwiches. Or, just enjoy them on their own to bolster the protein content of meals. If you’d like to use both tofu and tempeh, as shown in the photo, double the amount of marinade. Cook each kind of protein separately, then arrange on a plate to serve.
