First time making tempeh. Was worried about boiling it but it turned out great. Loved this! I did cheat and buy the jerk season mix. Also tossed it in a jerk sauce from buffalo wild wings. will make again can't wait to try it different ways
First time making Tempeh and we really enjoyed it. The nuggets had a nice flavor and adding the seasoning at the end helped ensure a nice texture as well. I simmered mine for the full 30 minutes and it was fine. Not sure if this was necessary or not but it seems like Tempeh is pretty bullet-proof in that arena. Served with mashed potatoes and collard greens. Thanks!
Yum! This has become a regular meal for us. It's great with mashed potatoes and a green salad with Lemon Vinaigrette. I use store-bought jerk seasoning rub, which works well. In response to the worry in another review: The tempeh does not disintegrate when simmered, but there's no need to simmer for 30 minutes. Tonight, I simmered it for 20 minutes, patted it dry, and returned it to the warm pot to dry off some more. I pan-fried it over high heat (not medium heat), which makes it a bit crisper.
Cool suggestion. I was worried that the tempeh would disintegrate in the water, so I didn't do that part. Does it really make a difference? I did it a bit differently anyway, not only did I add paprika to the mixture, I also added cornflour (corn starch) and egg substitute powder to the spices. I dipped the pieces in milk (or would have used beaten egg and not put any "egg" powder in the mixture -- the result would have been even better!), then coated them in the mixture, then fried them until golden. It gave them a wonderful coating!
Delicious! Easy to make and very satisfying! My non-vegetarian husband and roommate like it too. I made it exactly as directed (for once) and served it with Creamy Vegan Mashed Potatoes. Made for Veg*an Swap, June 2009
