You don't really have to do anything to tempeh. It tastes perfect on it's own (at least in my humble opinion). I usually just dice it up and throw it a stir fry.<br><br>
Or pasta.<br><br>
It's yummy.<br><br>

Depends on what kind of tempeh you get, but I get some that's already been fried and cut into strips. Any pre-cooked tempeh would work. I'll simply spash some oil in a pan, toss in some chopped onion and bell pepper and saute until cooked, then add the tempeh strips and saute gently for just a minute or two then add half a cup of BBQ sauce, give it a good mix and simmer for a minute until everything's heated through. Spoon the tempeh onto buns for a BBQ tempeh sandwich.<br><br><br><br>
You can do the same using tofu instead of tempeh.<br><br><br><br>
What kind of tempeh did you buy? Is it pre-cooked? If not, you'll need to cook it correctly first.

Hi! Is it pre-cooked or not? This is important as to how to prepare it. If its uncooked, you'll need to steam it first.

Basically, if its white its uncooked. If its brown, it's cooked.
