This one. YUM! On a whim I decided to pull out all the stops and create this tower of fierce yumminess. It’s quite simple once you investigate.
What is Tempeh?
Tempeh is a plant-based protein source. It’s made from fermented soybeans that have been formed into a block, though store bought tempeh often includes additional beans and grains. Tempeh offers a host of different health benefits and nutrients.
I LOVE tempeh. I was first introduced to this fermented food several years ago when a friend made me this salad with pan-fried tempeh on top. I was hooked! My usualy go-to brand is Lightlife tempeh. They come in various flavors like Buffalo or Smokey Bacon, but if you prefer to go plain, this would be the best option if you are adding tempeh to a chili or transforming it into a sloppy-joe style sandwhich.
Tempeh can be cooked or eaten raw. I’ve been known to nibble on a piece or two while I’m preparing it. It’s crunchy nutty flavor is unique and fresh. I do prefer my tempeh cooked, because tempeh absorbs different flavor so well. Soy sauce, BBQ sauce or simple olive oil, salt and pepper.
A fresh NYC everything bagel is another favorite that is a regular staple in my home. I usually pick up a few at the local bagel shop and freeze them. So so goood! Layer a couple of sunny side up eggs and BAM!Print
