Recipes & Tips
Henry’s Tempeh can be served in a wide variety of dishes and is a great way of incorporating soy into your diet. Tempeh is notable for its nutritional value and also for its versatility in how it can be eaten. Because of its firm texture tempeh can be sliced, diced, cubed, shredded or grated. Similarly, methods of using tempeh are varied: it can be baked, cooked, stir-fried, pan-fried, toasted, grilled, stewed. You name it and you can do it with tempeh!
Henry’s Tempeh has a very mild, nutty flavour. To add flavour tempeh is commonly marinated before cooking. The marinade can be very simple. A common marinade is soy sauce mixed with a bit of one (or more) of the following: balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, sherry, mirin (rice wine), orange or pineapple juice. Cut the tempeh into small cubes or thin slices before marinating for better absorption of flavours.
Try tempeh on the grill. Marinate in barbecue sauce; then grill until brown.
Add chunks of tempeh to spaghetti sauce, chilli, or to favourite soups and casseroles.
As an excellent source of non-animal protein, vitamins and soluble fibre, tempeh makes a great substitute for meats in almost all recipes. Try some of the following recipes, or take a favourite recipe that calls for meat (or tofu) and substitute in its place tempeh. You may be surprised, and I know you’ll be delighted with the results!
Live healthy by choosing your food wisely.
Happy eating!! Enjoy!!!
