Organic Tempeh

Tempeh is more than just a meat substitute for vegans and vegetarians. Organic Tempeh is a fermented soyfood, is originated in Indonesia. Made of fermented organic soybeans, it is a probiotic food that is a great source of protein, calcium, and fiber very commonly made and use in Malaysia and Indonesia. It is an amazingly nutrient rich soyfood, high in complete protein and Vit B-12, is an excellent choice especially good for strict vegans diets. Tempeh is low in calories and fat, and completely free of cholesterol.

Organic Tempeh differs form tofu in that it has a firmer texture, has a greater density and higher in fiber because the whole bean is used. So, it is a great meat alternative, and gives your recipes a heartier texture and taste.

Organic Tempeh has a naturally complex flavor that has been described as  nutty mushroom flavour. Normally tempeh is sliced or cut in cubes and fried until the surface is crisp and golden brown. You can also sauteed, baked, stir-fried, broiled, steamed, or grilled. It is a versital food that can be used in recipes in different ways dips, chilis, stir-frys, soups, stews, salads and sandwiches.

So, let’s celebrate World Vegan Day 2012 with this wonderful source of protein!
