Some quick ideas…
- Slice the cultured soy bean block to a desired thickness and marinate in whatever flavors and zest you like. Soy sauce, fish sauce, and herbs work well for stir fries. Make fake bacon the same way but with maple syrup and liquid smoke. Or use a fajita mix for Mexican style dishes
- Break up the cake before marinating for dishes such as tacos or sloppy Joes.
- Cover tempeh with marinade and place in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours. Just like tofu, the tempeh cake will absorb the flavors.
- We find it is best to cook the tempeh separately and add the cooked marinade at the end of cooking, if going into a stew or sauce, so that the flavor is not lost to the dish.
Blackened. Tempeh coated and seared with with blackening spice mix makes a tasty addition to salads and vegetable bowls. Use a prepared Cajun-style seasoning or make your own with a recipe online. Brush sliced patties or diced cubes with olive oil, then coat with the spice mixture, allow to rest for a minute or two. Sear in a hot frying pan until the spices start to smoke for 5-10 seconds to blacken.
Crumbled into sauces and stews. Like tofu, tempeh takes on the flavor of whatever it's cooked in, making it a versatile way to add heartiness and protein to a meal.
We suggest marinating the cake and then crumble or cube tempeh into stews, tacos, curry dishes, or
even spaghetti sauce.
