GENERAL TEMPEH PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS:

– Tempeh is commonly deep-fried before use in any dish, however:

– Steaming tempeh for 10 minutes prior to use in any dish will yield tempeh that is more juicy and apt to absorb any kind of marinade more readily and fully. Baking tempeh is also a good preparation method.

– These recipes come from our former restaurant and have withstood the test of time with much success!
