We challenge ourselves to do a meatless Monday in this house because it gets us out of our grilled chicken and ground turkey comfort zone.  Sometimes I get that "look" from my husband.  The look where I put his plate in front of him and he looks at me with that head cocked suspicious puppy look- like "what are you trying to get me to eat"?

Well.  For a man who grew up his whole life hunting and eating wild game, I'm pretty impressed when he tries what I make, even if it goes against his caveman ways!

Kale and tempeh sautée was one that I didn't expect him to take a bite of, knowing he only likes kale baked as chips, or if it's in the trash- not in his salad!  But, he did take a bite and like all of my children, that makes this momma/wife happy!

I on the other hand was a HUGE fan of this and will definitely be making it again, and hoarding it all to myself!  What is tempeh you ask?  It's a fermented soybean.  Loaded with protein and completely vegan.  It has a pine-nutty taste and when sautéed has the texture of a firm bean.

Inspired by the 22 Minute Hard Corps meal planning guide, I added my own spin and it turned out fabulous.  I hope you enjoy!
