Now that we’ve all learned about fabulous (and personal faux meat fave) seitan *praise seitan*, I thought it would be fitting to explore the tasty grandeur of tempeh, too.

Question: So what is tempeh?

Answer: Fermented soybean cakes … may sound funky, but it’s delish!

Reasons to fall in love with tasty tempeh:

  • It’s loaded with protein, fiber and vitamins
  • It has a firm texture
  • It’s easy to digest (aka won’t make you farty)
  • It absorbs flavors easily

Some recipe ideas: Tempeh ReubenTLT SandwichTempeh “Chicken” SaladBarbecued TempehTempeh Fajitas

You can buy tempeh online, at most health food stores, and well-stocked grocery stores—give it a try! All these fun meat substitutes make veganism hella fun and easy peasy.

How do you like your tempeh?

Just keepin’ it real,
Sunny

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
