I Have Been Tempted by Tempeh...

Ok, I know that title is rubbish, but I am trying to be more imaginative! And I have actually finally been tempted to buy some tempeh. I ate it once years ago, didn’t enjoy it and then just forgot it existed. It’s not something that I ever saw much of in the stores in the UK anyway, but here I have seen it many times here and always thought to myself – yeah, I’ll get some next time So, finally I decided to give it a go again and have now realised that I actually really like it! I haven’t tried anything more exciting than adding it to stir fries yet, but have found a few interesting looking recipes that I might have to test out soon.

I'm so glad. Ya know, I've only just finished my second pack ever! judgment: I like the stuff. It's heartier than tofu and it takes care of some of my carb-o-cravings.

Tempeh is indeed scarce here--I've found it at one health food store, and it was rubbish. The kinds available in the States are much better--especially the ones made with different grains.

And as for seitan, forget it. I actually think it's much easier to be vegan in the States. I envy you your vegan food choices!
