Better macros than tofu, needs a bit more prep!
Great product, keeps well and great texture. Tempeh's not for everyone, you need to get your marinades right. I steam mine for 10 mins, then coat it in a marinade and leave to cool, then fridge for 1-24h. I then toss in a little cornflour and air-fry/oven bake for 25 minutes until it's crispy, as I don't like it soft and chewy. It works well with peanut/sweet flavours, or savoury curry spices from my experience.

I'm half Indonesian and grew up eating tempeh. I didn't like the taste of meat until I was a teenager and ate tempeh rather than meat growing up. So pleased to be able to eat tempeh again. Have been living in London for a decade and being able to order tempeh from Tesco has filled me with so much joy. You can make numerous delicious dishes with it. My personal favourite is as follows: slice the tempeh 2cm thick. Add salt and minced garlic to cold water, marinate the tempeh for at least 10 mins in the garlicy brine, 30 mins is better. Shake dry and pan fry until golden in neutral oil. Serve it with steamed rice, sliced cucumber and sambal (tomato, onion, garlic, chilli, lemon juice and pinch of salt- ground in a pestle and mortar) and you have an easy, healthy and delicious authentic Indonesian meal. Yum!!
It's NOT like tofu. Cheaper to just buy beans
It has whole soy bean pieces so cannot avoid beany taste and texture. Also some funky s,ell probably from fermentation so needed strong flavoured sauce. I can just eat tofu more or less straight. The first time I bought tempe thinking it's like tofu (that's what6it says on the package.) If I want bean cuisine I can get cooked soy or other beans much cheaper without smell.
Love it!!! Please sell more tempeh options as it is more delicious than tofu!!!!
