Today we wanted to share a little bit of information on our new homemade Tempeh from the lovely girls at the Temperanza Lab in Cardamom Kitchens.
Tempeh is a nutrient-dense soy product with a high amount of protein, as well as various vitamins and minerals. It may decrease cholesterol levels, oxidative stress and appetite, whilst improving bone health. Tempeh also contains prebiotics, which may improve digestive health and reduce inflammation.
It is a traditional Indonesian food made from soybeans that have been fermented, or broken down by microorganisms.
Tempeh has a dry and firm but chewy texture and a slightly nutty taste. It can be steamed, sautéed or baked and is often marinated to add more flavour. Much like other meatless sources of protein, such as tofu and seitan, tempeh is a popular choice among vegans and vegetarians because it’s packed with protein, vitamins and minerals and low in sodium and carbs and it goes deliciously with Cardamom’s Indian sauces!
We think it goes well with Saag, Makan Palak and Dhaliwala due to its nutty flavour.
Why not try it next time with your Cardamom Kitchens Friday order?
