Trying out Tempeh

Sure, I’ve heard of tempeh before but until now I don’t think I’ve ever actually tried it. I got this idea from instagram (shocker) from another girl that does the bikini body guide workouts. I modified it some, but it gave me the idea of cooking with tempeh.

Benefits of Tempeh
»The fermented whole soybeans allow for a more chewy texture/consistency
»A great source of protein. 1 cup has as much protein as a scoop of my protein powder! (2x more than tofu)
»3x more fiber than tofu
»Easier for your body to digest than tofu because the tempeh is fermented
»In general, a great option for a plant-based protein

So the prep is super simple. Get your blocks of tempeh, cut them into tiny cubes, mix your ingredients on top, and put it in the oven for 15 minutes at 350 degrees! Done.

Below are pictures of how to prep it. In general, the seasonings I used were olive oil, maple syrup, cayenne pepper, freshly squeezed lemon, Trader Joe’s 21 seasoning salute and thyme. I didn’t use exact measurements–just kind of threw in a little of each (I used the most maple syrup though since this helps give it that extra flavor). I also put the tempeh on broil for 2 minutes after the initial 15 since I like it to be more golden brown.
