Maybe now some of you who are not familiar with this protein-rich food will make more sense of the fact that I spelled “tempest” incorrectly. Get it? Okay. Cool.
Temeph sounds, like most other fermented things when you try to explain what it is, kind of gross. It’s soy (or other grains) that has been cultured, much like yogurt.
To be honest, it took me a while to like tempeh. It has a bitterness that I wasn’t a huge fan of. However, I’ve found if you use a bit of salt directly on the temeh, it helps a ton.
“Where do I find this tempeh?”, you ask? They usually have it in the refrigerated section at Kroger (around here), and at any health food store.
