Time for Tempeh!

Have you ever tried tempeh? Tempeh is an excellent source of protein that comes from soy beans. While tempeh is often compared to tofu, it is quite different. Tempeh is made from whole fermented soy beans which gives it higher amounts of fiber, protein, and antioxidants than tofu. But tempeh’s benefits don’t stop there, food’s fermentation process also makes it a source of probiotics and gives it a firmer texture than tofu. All of these benefits make tempeh an excellent meat substitute. Tempeh can be cooked and served in a variety of ways including grilled, sautéed, roasted, and more!
