Anyways - I was wondering if you all would have any suggestions for a fairly simple tempeh dish that I might be able to actually pull off?
I'm with you. It's been a couple years since I've even made it. Recently, I've been thinking of giving it another shot. One thing I do know is that most people boil it first to get rid of the bitterness before they cook it.
Here's some recipes that I've been looking at:
- A tempeh patty in a wine sauce (I won't be using saffron)
Perfect Tempeh Burger
- A burger made with shredded tempeh and vital wheat gluten.
Red Chile Tempeh
- Tempeh chunks simmered in sauce. I'll probably use my own enchilada or mole sauce.
The most intriguing to me is the Red Chile Tempeh, where she simmers the tempeh in sauce (probably any sauce) until it begins to fall apart. I didn't even know tempeh did that. If it works even remotely well, I'll try it with sloppy joes.
