Tempeh lime chili soup salad

#1 Postby Aaron » Tue Feb 05, 2008 3:54 pm

Soup:
Lime, tempeh, buckwheat soba noodles, mixed salad greens, soy sauce, chili pepper, avocado, green peppers, veggie bullion

Cook the noodles w/ bullion (as many to make it however noodle-y you want the soup to be, I usually try to end up with about as much noodle as greens) with the sliced chili pepper and throw the green peppers in for a minute or two before you pull them off the burner so that they get hot but not mushy.

I stirfry the tempeh until it's lightly browned on both sides. (10 mins or so? I throw in a tablespoon or two of olive oil and 1 table spoon of soy sauce)

Put the greens in a bowl, pour the noodle/broth combo over them. toss on the noodles and tempeh then squeeze out half a lime or so over the top and throw on half an avocado.

It works out pretty quick. I started making it one time after I wanted a salad then changed my mind and wanted to turn my salad into a soup so I added noodles and broth :-)

I took the pic with my cellphone and the lighting was weird. Rice noodles would probably be a good substitute.

yeah, rice noodles are transparent, and buckwheat noodles look funky, but they taste very good

Looks Great Aaron,
Soba noodles are awesome, a great source of protein too.
Soba and Tempeh in the same receipe = :D
Have you ever loved someone so much you didn't care what happened to yourself?
You Just had to be with them.
If they look at you, your heart stops.
If you feel their breath on your skin, you just ache.
Have you ever craved someone so much you didn't exist anymore?
