Five reasons why we love tempeh

Tempeh you say? What even IS IT?! And how do you say it?

Pronounced Temp-ay, it is a soy bean-based fermented food. Originating from Indonesia, this is a protein-packed favourite of ours.  If you haven’t tried cooking with it yet, we recommend you give it a try. Here are our five reasons why we think you need tempeh in your life:

  • It is high in protein and low in fat. (Though if you are being health-conscious, be aware of extra calories from the oil you cook it in and any marinade you use.)
  • It is much less temperamental than tofu. No need to learn your firm from your silken like its squigdier cousin. It holds its shape well, so just slice it, marinate it, fry it (preferably coated in a little cornflour for extra crispiness) and away you go.
  • It’s versatile. Depending on how you prepare it, you can make it work in a whole host of meat-free dishes. Marinate it in miso and garlic and it makes a great meat replacement in a stir fry. Or slice it and coat it in tamari, smoked paprika and maple syrup and you can make a great alternative to a bacon butty when sandwiched between two slices of fresh, crusty bread.
  • It is surprisingly easy to get hold of. OK, you may confuse the sales staff in your local Tesco, but (people of Brighton) you can find it in the fridge section in Taj on Western Road, at Hisbe or Infinity Foods to name just a few. If you are based in other parts of the country – or indeed the world – check Chinese supermarkets (fridge or freezer sections) or health food shops.
  • At around £2 for a 200g pack, it is relatively affordable. Plus, a little goes a long way. One pack is enough to use in a main meal for four, whether you are making a stir-fry or curry dish along with some seasonal veggies.
