Food: Tempted by Tempeh Soya

Despite what is happening all over the world at the moment in my mind, life carries on as normal. Last week I was able to try out some new plant based protein called Plant Power Tempeh (pronounced tem-pay) made from soya beans and, guess what? It was really good!

I have to be honest – I’m not a vegetarian, never mind vegan, but I have cut down on my meat intake in recent times and I made 3 really great meals using Plant Power Tempeh as a sort of meat substitute. The beans are really low in fat and a great source of protein and fibre, they are also organic too.

My favourite were the Curry Flavoured Tempeh pieces, but as you can see from my pics they can be used in a variety of ways including curries, stir-frys and salads etc, etc.

The Plant Power Original Tempeh block retails from £2.75 and is available to buy in Sainsburys and other good outlets.

For the sake of transaprency the Plant Power Tempeh samples were sent to me free of charge, but all thoughts are definitely my own.
