Wow, TGIF! I’m so thrilled it’s Friday and to be home relaxing with hubby after another insane week. And the craziness caught up to me today, I was feeling just tired and lethargic at work after a few not-so-great nights of sleep being on-call. But it’s finally the weekend and I’m looking forward to some fun and relaxing!
I’m a huge fan of tempeh, it’s become one of my go to foods for fast recipes since going vegan. I adore that it’s versatile and fast to prepare compared to meat and so packed with protein. I prefer it over tofu because to the nutty, hearty texture and better flavor. And I love that it’s a fermented and less processed soy product with a rich history. From Wikipedia:
Tempeh’s fermentation process and its retention of the whole bean give it a higher content of protein, dietary fiber, and vitamins.
Some great tempeh recipes from the past:
Today I came home to a chilled box from LightLife full of tempeh and it was a pleasant surprise!
I have not one, but 5 tempeh varieties to get creative with in the next week and I can’t wait, the recipe ideas are already filling my head.
I’m really looking forward to working with the Organic Smokey Tempeh Strips first because I’ve always wanted to try those and get my non-vegan hubby’s opinion on them compared to bacon. There will be many tempeh recipes in the next week, I can’t wait to get playing in the kitchen with these!
