Tempeh (4 Ways!)


Tempeh is a great vegan protein and fits into so many different cuisines. But how do you cook tempeh? Here’s our comprehensive guide!

Step 1

Cut: Decide how you want to cut your tempeh – triangles, cubes, slices, or crumbled with a box grater.

Step 2

Steam: Prepare a pot of boiling water with a steamer basket on top. Set tempeh inside, cover, and let steam for 10 minutes (this removes a lot of the natural bitter flavor tempeh has).

Step 3

Marinate: Choose a flavor to marinate your tempeh in (8 tempeh marinade flavors here). Let marinate for 30 minutes, or up to 24 hours.

Step 4

Cook: Arrange tempeh in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 400°F (204°C) for about 15 minutes.
