Also, check your farmers markets for tempeh. Ours even carries one made of black beans instead of soy and calls it "temphah." It great because it doesn't give that soy after-effect. emoticon

You are worth it!

I have trouble with tofu as well. It just falls apart even when I buy the extra firm. The tempeh is much easier.

It sounds amazing! ...But then again, I don't know how to prepare tofu very well, so I guess I'd have trouble with tempeh, too. I've been looking for it, though, and I'll definitely try it next time I can get myself to the grocery store!

Yes, you can use it just like tofu and it absorbs the flavor of whatever you cook it with. It is just very firm and you don't have to press and drain it before use. I love the texture and don't think I will ever buy tofu again.

I've always heard about tempeh, but I get it confused with seiten (which is totally different). Can you use tempeh like tofu as well?

I love tempeh! I haven't had it in ages. Last time I had it I made a tempeh stroganoff, it was really good.
My other favorite way to eat it is tempeh burgers.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?

I am not a big fan of tofu so wasn't very excited about tempeh, but now that I have tried it I am hooked! It retains the whole bean so has higher protein and fiber than tofu. It is very firm and holds together while cooking and you can slice it like chicken strips.

Tempeh stir fry:

1 package of tempeh cut into strips
1 small onion chopped
5 green onions chopped
half bell pepper chopped
3 cups brown rice cold
2 carrots chopped
half cup frozen peas cooked
1 cup baby spinach shredded
4 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tomato diced

Put 2 tablespoons of oil in large pan. Add the small chopped onion and bell peppers sauté. Add the tempeh strips and pan sear both sides. Remove from pan when done.

Put 2 tablespoons of oil in pan add the rice, tomatoes and green onions. Stir until the tomatoes and green onions are wilted.

Add all the ingredients and cook until spinach is wilted.
