Tempeh, which can be used in many of the ways you can use tofu, is made from cooked and slightly fermented soy or other beans and formed into a patty. Other grains, such as barley and spices, may be added to commercially prepared products.
Whether baked, fried, or on its own, tempeh is a tasty addition to a variety of dishes, such as soups, salads, and stir-fries. Try this "barbecue" tempeh recipe as a healthier alternative to chicken or steak, or when you want a plant-based option that is chewier than tofu.
Note: Tempeh is sometimes found in the freezer section or in the refrigerator case. Because it is a fermented product, it may have some mold on it, which is normal.
