grilled avocado tempeh

This recipe teams the richness of avocado and tempeh with fresh crisp greens. Packed with protein and minerals the addition of nutty quinoa and a tangy dressing makes it extra special.


for the main ingredients

  • 2 small avocados
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 x 198g tempeh torn into pieces approximately 1½ cm thick

for the Dressing

  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp vegan horseradish sauce
  • 2 tsp cider vinegar
  • 1 small lemon juice and zest
  • Black pepper to taste

for the salad

  • 170g Florette classic crispy salad
  • 100g spring onion sliced
  • 1 small bunch mint finely chopped
  • 1 small bunch flat-leaf parsley finely chopped
  • 20g pink sushi ginger shredded
  • 70g quinoa cooked as directed on the pack


  1. Heat a griddle pan on a high heat. Halve the avocados and remove the stones, but keep the skins on. Brush the flesh with a small amount of olive oil and place flesh side down on the hot griddle. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until char lines appear.
  2. Toss the tempeh in the remaining oil. Heat a non-stick frying pan and stir-fry the tempeh for 5-6 minutes on a medium heat until browned and crispy on all sides. Set aside and keep warm.
  3. Place the dressing ingredients into a small bowl and whisk together until combined. Season with black pepper.
  4. In a large bowl, toss together the crispy salad, spring onion, half of the mint and parsley, sushi ginger and quinoa. Divide between four serving dishes.
  5. To assemble: Top with a griddled half of avocado followed by the crispy tempeh, a drizzle of horseradish dressing and a sprinkling of the remaining mint and parsley.
