What is tempeh?

Originating in Indonesia, tempeh is made from cooked, fermented and pressed soy beans, which create its unique and umami-packed flavour. The beans are formed into a block and sold vac-packed or in jars. Tempeh is used in similar ways to tofu, and is a good protein source for vegans and vegetarians.
