Tempeh Black Bean Bites

I am always looking for new ways to incorporate plant based foods into my diet.  Although I do eat meat and mainly go by diet of if it tastes good and is good for you I’ll eat it, I love creating recipes that can be enjoyed by many regardless of dietary restrictions.  I actually really enjoy the taste of many meat substitutes out there, my favorites being tempeh and seitan, so I work with these products once in awhile when the mood strikes.

This recipe makes use of tempeh and black beans to create versatile meat-free bites that you can use a variety of ways, as a snack or protein in your meals.  I enjoyed these with some roasted broccoli but they would be so amazing as “meatballs” smothered in some BBQ sauce or as appetizer bites with a creamy dipping sauce.  Totally up to you and your tastes!
