Who’s ready to eat some TEMPEH?!

If you’re not sure what tempeh is or how the heck to cook it, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve scoured the web for the BEST, most delicious vegan tempeh recipes and listed them all here.

Okay, let’s back up… what is tempeh? It’s a fermented soy product that makes for a great meat alternative in sandwiches, stir-fries, soups, you name it! Like bacon but also love pigs? No worries, tempeh makes the best vegan bacon. It’s pretty inexpensive, too; I usually find it for $2 a block.

I’m sure you’ll find a few recipes on this list that tickle your fancy. Pick one out to try this week to start adding tempeh to your plant-based protein rotation! My favorite is the savory oatmeal with tempeh bacon (I’m biased towards savory breakfasts), and Emily (my virtual assistant) really loves the marinated peanut tempeh.
