Tempeh Picatta (Kopie)


By Chef Ayinde

Why do I suggest tempeh for the person new Meatless Monday? Tempeh has almost the exact same protein value as fish and chicken. It’s high in calcium, iron and tempeh is a naturally cholesterol-free food, as are all vegan foods. Cooking tempeh is similar to cooking fish and chicken. when done well this dish can satisfy all. Also can be made gluten free.
