Sauteed tempeh with fig salad

tempeh and fig salad

Lunch, my most uninspired meal of the day. As a mum I need something quick, filling and easy to prepare. I don’t eat a lot of bread so a simple sandwich doesn’t often cut it. And with winter teasing us with its presence, salads don’t seem appropriate.

But with the mercury still hitting above 20 I thought I could sneak in some sautéed tempeh with a fig salad before soups become the meal of the day.

The figs I picked up direct from a local farm – my friend is living on a small organic farm out in Dural and we went to visit – we clucked at the chickens, marvelled at the eggplant and thought about how we need to get out of the city more.

The fig salad consisted of figs (obviously!), cucumber, grated beetroot, lettuce and kale.

The tempeh was sautéed in garlic and soy sauce. It was a tasty combo.

Maybe lunch can be exciting after all.
