  1. Cut the tempeh into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once the oil shimmers, add the tempeh and cook until it turns golden brown, which takes about 6-8 minutes.
  3. Add soy sauce, garlic powder, chili powder, and cumin to the saucepan. Stir well to coat the tempeh with the seasonings and cook for an additional 5 minutes until the tempeh is nicely browned. Remove the pan from the heat.
  4. To make the avocado dressing, blend avocado, lime juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a blender until you achieve a smooth consistency. Gradually add water, one tablespoon at a time, until the dressing reaches your desired thickness.
  5. In a large bowl, combine lettuce, tomatoes, black beans, corn, cilantro, red onion, and the cooked tempeh. Pour the avocado dressing over the salad ingredients.
  6. Enjoy your flavorful and nutritious tempeh salad!
