I have always wanted to try tempeh-a soy product but never had the guts to do so. Finally, I decided to give it a go after spotting some in our of our local oriental stores.
To be very honest, I do not think I am a fan of the taste of it- though I do like the texture. Maybe it's the way I cooked it. I paired it with some lovely chilli anchovies which made it nicer but I am not sure if I will give it another go.
It has a slight nutty but strong after taste. I think the chill and peanuts does mask the flavour well.
Have you tried tempeh before? How did you cook it?
