Raw Vegan Tempeh Dumplings: a fresh recipe

As you may have noticed by my latest recipes, I begin to feel the need for fresh and light dishes; For this reason, today I propose a very simple dish to make, very fresh and with a really original flavor. These are tempeh dumplings served on lettuce leaves, it’s a truly amazing raw and vegan dish.

This recipe is very suitable both for a family dinner and for an aperitif among friends, and it is best to prepare in a few minutes, and if you have children they will love to help you.

I hope your opinions!
