Tempeh is a veg protein made by fermenting whole soybeans that are often used in vegetarian and vegan dishes as a versatile and protein-rich ingredient. It is made by fermenting cooked soybeans with a tempeh starter to allow the beans to culture and for the good bacteria in the starter to bind the beans together into a firm block (similar to a block of Paneer or Tofu) called Tempeh.
... Tempeh can be used in most recipes as it takes on all flavours very well. You can add to your curries or stir-fries as a replacement for paneer or tofu, or saute it/ bake it and add it to salads or sandwiches. It has a firm texture and can be used as cubes, minced, mashed or as strips making it suitable for a variety of dishes, consumption moments, and cuisines. Tempeh is a great accompaniment for all types of beverages as the main snack. It is also used in a variety of cuisines from Asian to Indian to Continental.. When used in the same dishes that use other traditional protein sources such as tofu or paneer, tempeh has a firmer texture, soaks flavours better, and offers a better nutritional profile.
