My newest passion project is helping helping clients with in home meal preparation. Lately, most of the bulk meal requests I’ve been receiving is the want for more plant based meals. It seems many individuals are moving in this direction, while ensuring they and their families continue to receive the proper nutrition through well-planned and balanced meals.
One of my favourite go-to dishes is a Tempeh stir-fry with lots of veggies served on brown or jasmine rice. My typical reaction is “what the heck is tempeh?”
Whether you’re familiar with Tempeh or not, here are the facts:
- Tempeh is a traditional Indonesian soy product
- It is made from fermented soybeans that results in sticky form which allows the beans to bind together into a firm brick
- Unlike tofu which is processed, Tempeh keeps the integrity of the beans (keeps them whole) which maintains its nutritional benefits
- Tempeh is an alternative form of soy which is likely to be less exposed to GMO’s
