Turned onto tempeh: Tandoori Marinated Tempeh

DSC_0038.JPG

Tempeh is derived from fermented soybeans that are pressed firmly into a cake form. I’ve enjoyed tempeh for many years in some of my favourite vegan restaurants but never considered cooking it at home until I read a serving size (80g) of tempeh has a whomping 16g of protein!

Tempeh is incredibly nuttiness and has an amazing ability to pick up the flavours of the marinade of Arvinda’s Tandoori Masala.

Caution, tempeh needs a lot of flavour so be sure to season generously. Arvinda’s Tandoori Masala is complex enough to pair with it’s meaty texture. Serve on top of a salad or in a sandwich.
