Want to know how to cook it?! Keep reading! Or click the link in bio for my YouTube video.
Tempeh is made of soybeans. But it is not processed like tofu. It is fermented and it includes the WHOLE soybean, which is a complete protein!
It is good and good for your health!
It’s an excellent substitute for chicken.
Chicken, whether organic, free-range or “humane” or whatever label they put on it these days —- is literally injected with loads of sodium. Like with a huge syringe.
So... try tempeh! It wasn’t injected with anything and you don’t have to worry about how it was treated because it wasn’t alive!
The macros for tempeh are great. Def not as good as tofu. But the consistency is amazing.
The best way I have found to cook it is with olive oil and tamari (similar to soy sauce). It comes in a package in a rectangular shape.
Remove the block from the packaging.
Turn the block so the long way is horizontal.
Cut up and down into 4 squares.
Then cut each square down the center like you would a bagel.
It’s much easier to cook when it’s skinnier.
Then in a skillet, on the stove top, turn the burner to medium.
Place all the skinny squares in the skillet.
Add olive oil and tamari. About 2 Tbsp or so of each.
Cook on one side for about 2-3 minutes or until browned.
Cook on the other side 2-3 minutes or until browned.
Remove from heat, turn burner off and EAT!
If you want to avoid oil, I have used vegetable stock or balsamic vinegar too. Or you can bake it. Just marinate it in any marinade you would use for chicken, then bake for 30 minutes. Flipping halfway in between. 15 one side, 15 the other side.
