12 Mouthwatering Tempeh Recipes You Should Try This Week
Increasingly popular in Western countries and more widely available at grocers (and on menus) worldwide, tempeh is proof of the incredible versatility of soybeans. While tofu is widely recognized as one of the longest-standing meat alternatives, most people have no idea that tempeh has an equally rich (and delicious) history.
Hailing from Indonesia, this plant-based staple is made by fermenting soybeans in banana leaves until a firm, earthy patty forms. Today, you can buy ready-made tempeh at the store from a variety of brands. Tempeh contains more protein (31 grams per cup!) and dietary fiber than tofu, and its mild nutty flavor works great in a wide array of recipes. So what are you waiting for?
