Tempeh Salad (alternative to Tuna Salad)

Maddie from Hosta Hill likes to make this as an alternative to tuna salad. Like so many salads it can be adjusted for whatever vegetables and herbs you have on hand. It's great on a sandwich, on a bed of greens or mixed in with a cooked grain such as bulgur.

Ingredients
1 ½ pounds tempeh, finely chopped
1 green pepper or two stalks of celery, finely chopped
2 scallions or half an onion, diced or minced
¼ cup fresh herbs of your choosing, finely chopped
1-2 carrots, grated
¼ cup mayonnaise OR a little less than 1/4 cup yogurt plus 2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp tamari or soy sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions
1.) Steam the tempeh so that it softens up. This should take about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.

2.) Mix together the remaining ingredients, then crumble the tempeh into the mixture and stir together.

3.) Taste and adjust seasoning as you see fit.

Variations
Add a teaspoon of curry powder and a dash of cider vinegar or a handful of nuts and raisins to add sweetness and crunch.
