    how did u make the tempeh at kath’s house? i love ordering it when out but i don’t know how to make it myself. do you have any simple recipes? thanks!

    • It was super simple. I drizzled a tsp or so of olive oil into a hot nonstick skillet and threw in one package of cubed tempeh (medium heat). Once the tempeh browned a bit I added a chopped apple and a ton of fresh ground black pepper. After another minute or so I started pouring in the bbq sauce, maybe about 1/4 cup, then added an equal amount of water because the sauce will thicken right away. I added a little more sauce and water (probably 1/3 of a cup of sauce and 1/3-1/2 cup of water total) stirred it all together, let it simmer and get all gooey and thick, and it was ready!
      Tempeh is an awesomely healthy way to eat soy but I find it a bit trickier to cook than tofu. The bbq sauce method is the easiest and a very tasty combo. Another way I like to do it is to marinate thin strips of tempeh in a bit of olive oil, minced garlic, minced ginger, soy sauce/liquid aminos, and chili flakes for an hour or so and then bake it on a cookie sheet, singe layer. This method makes a great salad topper or sandwich filling.
      Have fun with tempeh and good luck!
