Plain tempeh

flourdust Jul 11, 2013 04:04 PM

I've been living in Vancouver for most of a year, and I have yet to see blocks of plain tempeh in any store. All I can find are sliced packages flavoured to resemble meat, which is not what I'm after. Does anyone know whether it might be available here, and if so, where?

      I believe I've seen it at Famous Foods on Kingsway (just east of King Edward).

          I'll second this -- Meilita's tempeh is excellent (and cheap!)

            I know zero about tempeh but because of this post I noticed a package of plain "simply soybean" at New Apple on Broadway near MacDonald. I even snapped a photo: it says ready to eat, just heat and serve. $3.99 a package in the cooler.
