Looking to incorporate some new proteins into your meatless meals? Say hello to tempeh – a plant-based protein made of cooked soybeans that have been fermented. Less processed than other vegan proteins, such as tofu, tempeh offers a heartier, nutrient-packed alternative. Now that you’re more familiar with tempeh, and your mouth is surely watering, Lightlife rounded up several easy and healthy tempeh recipes for you to try!
Sweet potatoes and tempeh are a vegan’s delicious alternative to steak and potatoes. Filled with protein and flavor, this recipe features marinated Organic Soy Tempeh and roasted potatoes topped with a marmalade, brown sugar, cinnamon, and oregano sauce – perfect for an entertaining side-dish or an easy-to-prep dinner.
