Serves 4 (serving size: 2 sliders)

Yet another reason why we love tempeh: It makes a delicious plant-based riff on a buffalo slider and packs 9g fiber (a third of your daily needs) into just 3 ounces. This soybean-based veggie protein is a great option for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike, as its firm texture and adaptable flavor can renovate just about any meat-based recipe. Here, we braise tempeh in hot sauce to infuse it with buffalo-flavor before tucking it in a toasty whole-wheat bun. Topped off with refreshingly crunchy slaw, these sliders will be an instant hit at your next tailgate. To make vegan, substitute canola mayo for vegan mayo.
