Delicious Tempeh Recipes

A lot of people tell me they have a hard time enjoying tempeh. Not me — I fell in love at first bite! I love tempeh so much that I sometimes make it from scratch, and I even wrote a post on pretty much everything you ever need to know about tempeh.

But I get it. Tempeh has a weird texture and kind of a funky flavor. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea. And most importantly, tempeh isn’t something you just heat up and eat. You’ve got to have the right recipe.

Fortunately, I think I have many of the right tempeh recipes. So many, that my husband, who didn’t enjoy tempeh at all when we met, is now a big fan of the the stuff.

Here are 15 of my favorites!
