New to tempeh? This plant-based meat alternative comes from soybeans. After a process of soaking, cooking, and fermenting, the beans are pressed and formed into a firm, meat-like patty. Tempeh has a nutty, almost mushroom-y flavor, but it also absorbs other flavors easily, making it a versatile and delicious plant-based meat alternative.
