Fried Tempeh

Tempeh, a cake of fermented soybeans, is much tastier than it sounds. This is my favorite way to eat it.
Yield 2-4 servings
Time 10 minutes
  • saucepan
  • spatula
  • several T olive, peanut, or sesame oil
  • 1 package (8 or 10 oz) tempeh, cut into ½ inch strips
  • 2 T soy sauce

Heat the oil over medium-high heat.

Add tempeh in a single layer and fry until golden, about 3-4 minutes.

Drizzle with half of the soy sauce, turn and repeat.

Serve hot.

Notes These crunchy sticks can be eaten plain for a snack, and they also taste great with peanut sauce or barbecue sauce.
