Grilled Tempeh at Whole Foods- what is it?

yankeefan Aug 22, 2007 11:02 AM

Ive been eating this from the salad bar and I have to say it is both delicious and actually tastes healthy.

Excuse my ignorance, but I dont even know what it is or how it is prepared but it has a great consistency and taste. Goes great on some bread and hot sauce.

    This is from wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tempeh

    "Tempeh/Tempe is made by a natural culturing and controlled fermentation process that binds soybean particles into a cake form."

      Tempe is a fermented soybean cake? That may come as a shock to about 170,000 people living near Phoenix, AZ.

        I am officially addicted to this stuff, have it every day now. I wonder if I can make at home too- I assume that whole foods sells whatever it is raw that can be cooked.

        grilled with bbq sauce over salad with a big chunk of bread is absolutely delicious.

          they do sell it in refrigerated sections. it comes in rectangular blocks and different flavors. you can crumble it up and stir-fry it, or coat and grill or broil...
