I've been trying new foods this week as my diet is so limited, and someone who is Vegan at the Wholefoods store I visit recommended this, Tempeh. Which is fermented Soya, and isn't really processed, unlike Tofu.
While I was in the Wholefoods store with Hubby-to-be, I spotted a lady doing a cooking demo with Tofu, so I tried some, and loved it! However, as I can't tollerate Soya very well at all , and neither can Opeie- due to his allergies and tolerances, I thought I'd try Tempheh, as apparently alot of people who are intollerant to Soya, can digest this alot easier.
I got home all enthused and happy about having a bounty of new foods, which I should haul later, and decided the following day to try it.
The tempeh wasn't as nice as the Tofu that the lady had cooked the day before, but it was edible. Tempeh has a very very bland taste, and kind of lumpy texture.
This is the recipe I used :
I think that Tempeh would be better partically cooked and then blitzed in a food processor and made into burgers or patti's or some type of sausages. It needed disguising and seasoning more.
Until next time, I will hunt for a good tempeh recipe. Are you a tempeh fan?
