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.
Where to buy tempeh
Slice into thin strips and marinate in soy sauce, maple syrup and liquid smoke for a delicious vegan bacon alternative.
Delicious chunks of marinated tempeh work brilliantly with juicy pineapple in this easy alternative to the traditional BBQ skewer.
