Tempeh is my absolutely favourite way to eat soy. I’m generally not a huge fan of fermented foods but it really doesn’t taste fermented. Instead it has a nutty, earthy flavour that pairs lovely with everything I’ve tried so far. This is a dish that I never ate in its original form. I love fruit incorporated in savoury dishes though and I was dying to try it. So, today’s experiment is tempeh a l’orange.
It was everything I hoped it would be. The sweet and savoury flavours were wonderfully balanced. For a more traditional approach you can serve it with basmati rice. I was going for a more whole food approach so I served my tempeh with kamut. It was incredibly tasty and satisfying.
