Tempeh, the relatively unknown cousin to tofu, is a nutty cake of fermented soybeans with a nutritional profile superior to its relation.

A staple for those on vegan or plant-based diets, tempeh provides an excellent alternative to meat as it holds its own in protein, calcium and iron content.

So why else should we include tempeh, and how can we incorporate it into our diets?

Health benefits
Rich source of manganese, a vital mineral for skin health.
Rich source of copper, promoting brain cell activity and tissue strength.
Rich source of fibre, increasing feelings of satiety and promoting healthy bowel function.
Good source of non-dairy calcium, aiding bone maintenance.
A fermented product, so an easier to digest vegan protein source than tofu or lentils for many people.

How to enjoy
Tossed through an Asian stir fry with loads of veg and noodles or rice.
Used in sandwiches, wraps and burgers as you would tofu or cooked meat.
Added to curries, sushi or tacos in place of meat.
Skewered and grilled with mixed veggies for vegan kebabs.
Cleverly crumbled into chilis, bolognese, pastries or over pizza for an almost unnoticeable meat-free substitute.
