Ingredients

1 tsp olive oil 5 mL
200 g tempeh
2 tbsp soy sauce 30 mL
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar 15 mL
3 tbsp mediterranean yogurt, 10% 50 g
1 tsp lemonjuice, freshly squeezed 1/4 lemon
1 pinch cayenne pepper 0.1 g
1/4 Boston lettuce 50 g
1 avocados 170 g

Method

  1. Cut each 8oz (240g) tempeh block into 4 squares, then cut each square into 2 triangles.
  2. Combine the soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and garlic in a bowl. Place the tempeh into the bowl then let marinate for about 30 min, turning the pieces once to cover them well. Make sure that both sides of the tempeh are covered with the marinade.
  3. Meanwhile, mix together the yogurt, lemon juice and Cayenne pepper in a small bowl.
  4. Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the tempeh pieces and sauté until golden-brown, about 5 min.
  5. Put the lettuce leaves on a working surface. Portion out the tempeh, avocado and yogurt mixture onto the leaves. Roll each leave into a wrap then serve.
