For a healthier twist of the same old breadcrumb coating, we have breaded these crispy tempeh nuggets with a tasty mix of seeds, almond meal, and nutritional yeast.
Ground seeds and nuts not only make a gluten-free alternative to white breadcrumbs but they also boost this recipe with flavour and healthy fats and keep the carbs low.
We have decided to experiment with tempeh, a fermented soybean product as it’s higher in proteins and less processed than tofu. High-protein foods make you feel full for longer preventing you from overeating. Moreover, being fermented, tempeh is a great source of prebiotics which support your digestive system health.
Instead of deep-frying the tempeh strips, they are just baked in the oven with a little olive oil. This helps to keep the fat content low so you can enjoy more of these tempeh appetisers with no guilt.
