Buffalo Wing Tempeh with Garlic Spiced Teff

If you're ever worried about getting enough protein - stop worrying and make this dish! Tempeh has one of the highest amounts of protein in any plant-based food, and teff has one of the highest amounts of protein in a grain. Tempeh is also a great substitute for meat! Unlike other soy products, tempeh does a really great job of soaking up the flavor of whatever sauce you toss it in. 
I served this tempeh over some spiced teff with steamed asparagus, sliced rainbow cherry tomatoes, and freshly chopped basil. 

Ingredients (Tempeh):
  • Buffalo Wing Sauce (Franks Red Hot or any kind of vegan sauce)
  • Tempeh
Ingredients (Teff):
  • Teff 
  • Water
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic or 1 tbsp garlic powder 
  • 1 tbsp onion power
  • 3 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tbsp dried italian herbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
Cut the tempeh up into strips (any size, totally your choice). Marinate it in 1/4-1/3 cup of your favorite hot sauce for at least an hour. Bake it at 425 for 10 min. Make the teff according to these instructions and stir in the spices at the end.  Enjoy!
