Here's what you should know about tempeh
Tempeh is a soy-based meat alternative. It’s made from whole soy beans which are softened by soaking. Then they’re cooked, slightly fermented and formed into a firm patty or block.
Tempeh is not Tofu. No! While tempeh and tofu are both high protein meat alternatives made from soy, they’re actually totally different from one another.
The first big difference is that tempeh is minimally processed using soybeans, while tofu is made by coagulating soy milk, then pressing the curd into block. Tofu has a soft texture, and is sold in varying degrees of firmness, from silken to extra firm. Meanwhile, tempeh is hearty and firm with a varied texture from the whole soybeans.
