It wasn’t until recently that I became a tempeh fan. The grainy texture always sort of put me off, and it just never occurred to me to pick it up at the store. Tempeh has a lot of health benefits, though, and lately I’ve been running across excellent recipes featuring this vegan protein star!
The key to tempeh is to steam or simmer it before you start prepping. There was a subtle taste that put me off of the stuff, but simmering in just enough water to cover for about 10 minutes really lets the tempeh goodness shine through without any strange taste in the back of your mouth.
These tempeh recipes make me hungry just looking at them!
- Indonesian Tempeh Sticks with Gado-Gado (the recipe is about halfway down)
- Tempeh Sausage
- Tempeh Stir Fry
- Tempeh Dinner Salad

- TLT (Tempeh, Lettuce, and Tomato Sandwich)
- Sweet Spicy Sticky Tempeh

Do you have a favorite tempeh recipe? I’d love to hear it in the comments!
