One of the neat things about both Tofu and Tempeh that I've discovered is that it adopts almost any flavor as it's own.
Very high in protein, Zero fat...both are a wonderful substitute for meat, or as an addition to a meat dish. Both can be cooked in a hundred different ways from crisp to mush. Creamed into a dish or diced into stew.
A healthy and inexpensive way to get fat out of a diet and keep protein in a diet.
I've cooked Tofu in ways that had many so-called Tofu haters loving it. Comments like "Wow, I never knew it could taste like this!" "I'd eat this pretty often".
I imagine that Tempeh is the same way. Almost any food can be made to look terrible and/or taste like something the fell from the south end of a north bound cow. My own Mom, bless her heart, could burn water. She was the only person I've ever met in my life that could ruin any food.
I'll see what the thread turns into.....
I wish you guys could have seen me laughing after my last post. Sometimes I crack me up!
