Tempeh is made by inoculating cooked soya beans with a starter culture which grows through the beans and binds them together into a solid cake.

To cook, simply slice and fry gently until golden brown.

It is delicious in pitta bread or a wrap with a salad and a good sauce.

Tempeh can also be marinated before cooking - there is a recipe on the label - and is a great ingredient in a stir-fry or kebab.

For more info and recipes see the internet, especially www.tempeh.info They provide us with excellent starter culture, and you can order it for yourself if you want to try making tempeh at home.
