Tempeh can be used in cooking much like one would use meat or fish. The most common way of cooking is perhaps frying, stirring, frying or cooking. Fried tempeh is reminiscent of the taste of pork and most people like the taste of tempeh. Use for example in tacos, lasagna, pasta, wraps or burgers.
We have various products from tempeh in our online store and products to start making tempeh yourself at home. Tempeh recipes can be found here …
Njordstorp’s tempeh is a live, farmed food that comes freshly chilled or frozen to slow down the fermentation without destroying all the beneficial probiotic stimulators (the commercial tempeh is most pasteurized and makes it hard and bitter).
We recommend that you keep our tempe frozen to keep the taste mild (otherwise the taste develops to strong). It will retain its freshness for up to 6 months in the freezer.
To thaw tempeh, leave it at room temperature for an hour or two or place in the refrigerator overnight. Do not use a microwave oven as you will destroy that bacterial culture.
If you want to store cooked food then it is the same as other leftover food you are used to. Uncooked tempeh begins to ferment again after about 3 days in the refrigerator which will result in a much stronger taste.
