16 of the most delicious vegan tempeh recipes

An argument between two vegans is not called a beef. Just two people with bad ‘tempehs’! But all jokes aside, tempeh, which is made by fermenting whole beans such as soya, is a high-protein and fibre rich ingredient that is similar to tofu and great for adding protein and texture in dishes thanks to its meaty texture. Here’s a delicious section of dishes you can make using tempeh.
