20 Tofu and Tempeh Recipes with the ‘WOW’ factor

20 Tofu and Tempeh Recipes with the ‘WOW’ factor

November 14, 2018 0 By Honey Morris

I can honestly say, pre-vegan, I wouldn’t have had a clue what tempeh or tofu were and, while I was excited to discover and stock up on these high protein and versatile soybean products, I was completely  overwhelmed in terms of knowing what to do with them.

 

I spent the best part of a week just staring at the first package of tempeh I ever bought!

 

Nowadays, they’re both staples in my kitchen and I treat both tempeh and tofu similarly to how I treated meat – marinade, marinade, MARINADE… or, as I prefer to say, put a sauce on it!

 

I’ve put together this collection of tempeh and tofu recipes with the WOW factor.

 

Enjoy!
