Basic Tempeh 101

After sauteing the tempeh you may use it in a variety of ways - cut into1 1/4" pieces, spear with a tooth pick and serve as an appetizer with any oriental dipping sauce - or stir fry veggies and add the tempeh instead of meat- you may even add the cut up tempeh to a favorite pasta sauce and serve it over pasta. I am not vegetarian but I enjoy tempeh dishes. The original tempeh 101 recipe was on the back of a "Turtle Bay" Tempeh label (excellent tempeh) Try something new you'll love it If you wish bake the tempeh in a 375 oven for apprx 20 minutes or until it is golden.
