Top 10: Tempeh Recipes to Add to your Menu

15 November, 2017 , , ,

Tempeh is lesser known than tofu, but is also a soya based product. It is increasingly popular because of its complete protein and fiber content (5g of fiber per 100g). Originally from Indonesia, tempeh is obtained from soya beans, which are cooked, pressed into patties and cultured with a fungus. Fermentation takes place for 24 hours at 30°C: mold then forms and transforms the patties into a compact white-ish edible “cake”. You’ll find tempeh in health food stores, most often frozen in the shape of an 8oz (240g) square. Discover its aromas of mushroom, nuts and yeast with our 10 best tempeh recipes.
