I was browsing around my local Meijer store today. (For those of us not from the midwest Meijer is similar to a WalMart but with more food and less destroying of Mom and Pop stores.) Anywho, I was checking out the Tofu section when I saw a little package of Tempeh. The brand was LightLife. I thought "Wow, Meijer is becoming so progressive, first with Tofu and Soy Cheeses and now Tempeh!" So of course I picked myself up a package and went right home.
I sauteed some zucchini and summer squash, cooked some brown rice and proceeded to brown the Tempeh in oil with 2 tbs. Soy Sauce (as the package recommends. Long story short, it was disgusting!!!! The texture (all grainey, like little undercooked beans), the taste (like a smoked sausage but in a bad way). Just ew.
Does anyone have some spectacular recipe for tempeh. True, I could do a search of the recipes, but I want to know if anyone has actually had a successful experience with this stuff.
