Easy to cook and versatile, tempeh is a food that can be incorporated into almost any dish. It can be a substitute for meat or cooked as the main food. Discover 5 tempting ways to incorporate tempeh into your daily menu.
1- In a salad
Whether in small or large pieces, tempeh has a dense, tender texture that is perfect for salads and can even replace the croutons that are commonly used. And for a crispier texture, you can fry the tempeh pieces or put them in the oven for a few minutes.
2- As a sauce
Everyone already knows how easy it is to replace our animal proteins with plant proteins, but is it possible with tempeh? With its rich taste and silky texture, it is easy to season with the spices of your choice and eat it as a side dish with your main courses.
3- In your aperitifs
Whether on skewers, in blocks or with raw vegetables, the already marinated tempeh is an excellent appetizer. It can be accompanied by the raw vegetables of your choice. Our favourite tempeh when creating appetizers is Montreal Spice Cube Tempeh. For more recipes, click here.
