Tempeh has kindof a funny flavour, I know.

Personally, I disliked it until I prepared it this way! So good, it shocked me. Now I’ll have tempeh very often, and it’s one of my favourite proteins sources.

I also want to point out the importance of a good quality tempeh, this is so important. A good tempeh does not taste bitter, which used to be the reasons I didn’t like tempeh.

As seasoning, I often use smoked chipotle in adobo. This is a Mexican sauce made of jalapeΓ±os, so good you need to try this one. Trust me :).

That said, I appreciate you so much and let’s get right into the recipe!
