My usual meals at home are vegetarian, but we’ve been trying our hand at making some new things and that has meant eating a little more meat.
I wanted to change that up so picked up some tempeh to try out.
I (wrongly) assumed that it would be like cooking up tofu. It was a little more prep then that.
You have to boil or steam the tempeh to rid it of a sour/bitter taste, marinade it, and then bake or cook it stove top.
My favorite thing to do has been to make sandwiches or BLT toast. Hubby has loved making wraps with them!
I picked up a carton of heirloom tomatoes to use for our BLTs. The tomatoes were so yummy. I cut it up and had the rest it on the side-they were so juicy!
Tempeh does take a little extra time to prep, but now is a good time to experiment with ingredients.
Have you cooked tempeh? What did you think? How do you make it? Let’s chat in the comments!
Stay healthy and I will be back next week!
