Tempeh dippers vs chicken nuggets

20121012-182835.jpg

I just can not get over how simple and good this stuff is. These bad boys I simply fried in coconut oil with some paprika, pepper, honey and nutritional yeast and dipped in ketchup and Tamari sauce. The texture and dip-able nature of these tempeh strips remind me a lot of chicken nuggets.

I would like to take a moment to compare the nutritional value of the two foods…

Per 100 grams:

Calories:

T-160
C-297

Protein:

T-19g
C- 15g

Fibre:

T-6g
C-0.9

Calcium:

T-50 mg’s
C-0 mg’s

Sodium:

T-4.8mg
C-574mg

Fat:

T-3.6 g
C-18 g

Cholesterol:

T-0 mg
C-55mg

Iron:

T-2
C-5

Tempeh = less calories, more protein, more fibre, more calcium, way less fat, way less salt, no cholesterol, no dead birdies.

Now, that nutritional info is based on store bought frozen nuggets; I’m sure home made wouldn’t be quite so bad, but I feel like WAY too many people take the easy route and feed themselves, or worse, their kids, the quick and convenient frozen nuggets.

These tempeh dippers literally take less then five minutes from opening the package to slicing and cooking. Can you get any more convenient?!?
