Another yummy fig recipe! I thought they could be a great starter or light meal as well. Combined with my beloved lettuce and protein-laden tempeh it just had to work. And yes! An awesome combination of smokey tempeh, sweet fig and balsamic dressing. Yum! 🙂
For 2 portions you’ll need:
2 portions fresh lettuce
3 tablespoon soy sauce
25 drops liquid smoke
some cooking oil (I prefer coconut-oil)
3 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
5 tablespoon olive oil
1-2 garlic cloves
some freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 190°C.
Gently wash the figs and cut them in half.
Line a baking try with baking paper and place figs onto it.
Place in the oven and roast until tops turn golden-brown (approx. 15-20 minutes).
While the figs are in the oven, cut the tempeh into thin slices.
Mix the soy sauce and liquid smoke in a flat dish (lasagne dish works quite well).
Place the tempeh strips in that dish and let soak a little before turning.
In the meantime peel the garlic and mince it into a small bowl. Add the balsamic, olive oil and pepper. Mix well until creamy.
Heat some cooking oil in a pan and fry the tempeh strips for approx. 1 minute on each side until golden-brown.
Place roasted figs on plate, add the lettuce and tempeh and sprinkle with the dressing.
