Tempeh, peach and avocado in a sesame seed oil vinaigrette.

Sesame seed oil adds a pleasant nutty taste to this salad, but because of its full flavour, it is preferable not to overdo it.

Ingredients

1/4 red onions, thinly sliced 40 g
120 g tempeh
1 tbsp soy sauce 15 mL
1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar 8 mL
1/2 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp olive oil 5 mL
1 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar 23 mL
2 tbsp canola oil 30 mL
1/2 tsp sesame seed oil 2.5 mL
2 peaches 300 g
1 avocados 170 g
1 green onions/scallions
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

  1. Thinly slice the onion, then soak it in a small bowl filled with water and a few drops of vinegar. Set aside while preparing the rest of the salad or leave it overnight in the refrigerator. This makes the raw onion easier to digest and crispier.
  2. Cut each 8oz (240g) tempeh block into 4 squares, then cut each square into 2 triangles. Combine the soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and garlic in a bowl. Place the tempeh into the bowl then let marinate for about 15 min, turning the pieces once to cover them well. Make sure that both sides of the tempeh are covered with the marinade.
  3. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the tempeh pieces and sauté until golden-brown, about 5 min. Set aside.
  4. While the tempeh is marinating and cooking, mix the rice vinegar, salt, pepper, canola and sesame oil in a large bowl. Whisk using a fork until the vinaigrette is well emulsified. Drain the onion and add it to the bowl.
  5. Cut the peaches in slices and put in the bowl.
  6. Cut the avocados in half and remove the stone, then using a melon-baller, spoon out small balls and add them to the bowl. If a melon-baller is not available, simply dice the avocados.
  7. Add the tempeh triangles and sliced green onions, then toss delicately to coat well with the vinaigrette. Serve right away.

Remarks

Avocados should be prepared and added to the salad at the very last minute to avoid darkening.
