Baked Tempeh
from: Chef

Tempeh is a traditional Indonesian food. It is a fermented food made by the controlled fermentation of cooked soybeans with a Rhizopus mold. The tempeh fermentation by the Rhizopus mold binds the soybeans into a compact white cake. People can cook tempeh in a variety of ways, but most Indonesians bake it with a little oil and salt like in this recipe. Tempeh is a great source of protein.


  • 15 ounces tempeh
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

1. Cut the tempeh into slices about 1/4 inch thick.

2. Brush with oil oil and sprinkle with salt.

3. Bake at 400 degrees until somewhat crispy and lightly browned.
