    16 Reasons It's Time For Tempeh To Take Over Your Life

    You can keep your soggy tofu, it's tempeh time.

    Q: Yeah, I've totally heard of Tempeh. ...What exactly is it, though?

    A: Tempeh is a soy-based food with a firm, crunchy texture and a ton of protein. It is usually infused with additional grains such as flax seeds, barley and millet. While it's an excellent substitute to meat, there's no reason it can't thrive on it's own.

    TLDR: It's meat-free tempeh-tation.
