I decided to give up meat for lent and have subsequently found my meat replacement solace in Tempeh. It’s essentially just fermented soy beans mixed with whole grains and has a much more of an appealing texture than the spongy tofu I always used to eat. Tempeh is also GMO-free and is less processed than tofu! AKA better for you!
And because I like to focus on travel for my blog, I decided to conduct a little research into the origins of this amazing food. It turns out it’s from Indonesia and is very popular there. I should have planned a trip there during lent – next time.
Until then, I will be recreating this delicious recipe many times until Lent is over. Courtesy of Chainring Tattoo, thank you :)
