Tempeh, a common staple of plant-based diets, is a fermented soy product that is not as processed and is much easier on the digestive system compared to tofu. It is a versatile ingredient and can be sliced, diced, crumbled and cubed, making it a perfect substitute for meat products when cooking.
Tempeh will generally take on whatever flavors you're cooking with, so make sure to season it really well, since it is also very absorbent if you are using liquids. Look for tempeh at your local health food store, near the vegan foods or tofu section.
Skip the meat, and use tempeh in your fajitas. Peppers, onions and zucchini are oven roasted with diced tempeh and served in whole-grain tortillas for a wonderful meatless dinner.
