  • 1 8-ounce package tempeh
  • 1 small apple diced
  • 2 celery stalks chopped
  • 1/4 cup toasted pecans roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon low-sodium tamari
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes


  1. Prepare the tempeh by steaming it for approximately 10 minutes. I used a steaming insert in a bot with boiling water, but you can use a bamboo or electric steamer. Use whatever you would steam veggies with.
  2. Allow the tempeh to cool, then crumble it into a bowl.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix together thoroughly.
  4. Place in the fridge in a sealed container and allow to chill for an hour or two.
  5. Serve on sandwiches or in salads. You can also serve as a snack with cut veggies or crackers.
