Tempeh Time

Tempeh.  Many run from this word, as it is unknown to most.  However, I’ve slowly started to notice it’s becoming more and more ‘trendy’.  I started to explore this tempeh, what makes it both intimidating and attractive?  Fermented whole soybeans with mold, similar to tofu.  Tempeh is a meat substitute, it’s firm, dry and chewy and the best part about it is that you can get it smoked- tastes like bacon!!  Which is why when I first tried tempeh, it was smoked and I found it delicious.  At Candle Cafe, a vegan restaurant in New York, their menu featured many variations of tempeh.  I got a smoked temeph sandwich with roasted red pepper, roasted zucchini, arugula, with a tomato spread on whole grain bread.

Sani Panini Tempeh

Ways we can use temeph in panini form: replace your grilled meat with grilled temeph, try it smoked, grill it with some veggies on the panini with a soy sauce, and naturally add it into your next panini :).

*Did you notice the great panini grill marks on the tempeh?

Enjoy,

Sani
