Try this easy and delicious take on tempeh!
If you’ve been following me for awhile, you’ll know that I absolutely love tofu! I truly despised it before going Vegan until I learned that you really have to season it and test out different ways of cooking it.
My first tofu recipe I’ve ever posted on the blog is what has inspired me for this recipe. My sesame soy baked tofu is super delicious and easy. Don’t judge me on the photos, I wasn’t as experienced with food photography as I am now! I might have to update those photos soon.
With this tempeh, I decided to sauté it. I definitely prefer sautéed tempeh to baked so that’s the major difference in this recipe (as well as some seasonings). I just wanted this to be super straightforward and easy to make.
It took me about two years into Veganism to like tempeh. I started with the Tofurky tempeh bacon and then I started to venture off to making tempeh myself. It’s definitely an acquired tasted and texture, and I would be lying if I said I didn’t like it at first. Just like with tofu, it came down to seasonings and how I cooked it. Now, I am obsessed!
This recipe is just for the tempeh, however I love serving it up with some sautéed onions & peppers over some jasmine rice. Or just simple with some steamed broccoli!
I hope that you enjoy this recipe! If you make any of my recipes, don’t forget to tag me on Instagram @plantbasedjane.
