Have you ever tried tempeh? Tempeh originally came from Indonesia. It is made from fermenting soybeans using a mushroom, the Rhizopus Oligosporus, which is part of the Zygomycota class of fungi. This process makes it much easier for the body to assimilate the protein (up to 90% more!). Tempeh is therefore an amazingly high source of plant-based proteins! Because it is fermented, tempeh is also good for your second brain: your intestines. After all, two healthy brains are better than one!
Tempeh can be used with a wide variety of sauces, whether they are sweet, salty, spicy or acidic.
