Do you like Tempeh? (food)
Posted 1/1/08 , edited 1/1/08
Pretty much everyone knows what tofu is, but do you know what tempeh is?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tempeh




Tempeh has a complex flavor that has been described as nutty, meaty, and mushroom-like. Tempeh freezes well, and is now commonly available in many western supermarkets as well as in ethnic markets and health food stores. Tempeh performs well in a cheese grater, after which it may be used in the place of ground beef (as in tacos). When thin sliced and deep fried in oil, tempeh obtains a crispy golden crust while maintaining a soft interior - its sponge-like consistency make it a fantastic base for all marinades.


I've never really seen this stuff where I've been outside of the US or in ethnic restaurants so I get the feeling that it's mostly just an Indonesian thing. It's awesome when deep fried (very crispy) and has a better texture than tofu in my opinion.

So am I the only one who likes this stuff or knows what it is?

(Note: I am actually not vegan but I am vegetarian.)

I have eaten tofu, soy protein & seitan but I have never tried tempeh. I have heard people mentioning 'tempeh' but I never really bothered to look up what it really is & how it looks like... So, thanks for the information!
