Does anyone have any ideas on what to do w/tempeh other than make a reuben or your basic stir fry? Would like some ideas to mix it up a little. Thanks

  1. Saw a recipe today on tv where the tempeh was baked in a marinade of soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, and olive oil. The finished product was added to a sandwich, but I'm sure it would be good on a salad.

    1. Here are a few ideas:

      Also, if you search for tempeh on the board, a few more ideas come up, like tempeh buffalo fingers and tempeh banh mi. Good luck!

      1. I saw this recipe today from her upcoming brunch book:

        I've never had tempeh before - scared to try it!!

        1. recently, I made tacos with it - marinated diced tempeh with sofrito and lime juice, then used it like any other filling.
          Also recently made chili - I used roughly equal parts ground turkey and chopped tempeh because I didn't have quite enough of either of them, and it came out great.
          Basically, I use tempeh in place of ground meat. i try to use it in dishes that have fairly strong flavors, since it stands up for itself quite well, and that make good use of its textures. i really don't like big chunks of tempeh, but after grinding/chopping it to a finer texture, I love it.

          1. One of my favorite tempeh recipes comes from Heidi of 101 Cookbooks. It has an orange glaze and is really delicious!
