There are very few people who actually want to eat tempeh. This brick of fermented soybean -- common in Indonesia -- has a strong flavor that turns many people off. It's not subtle like tofu can be. But if you're following a vegetarian or vegan diet, incorporating tempeh is crucial in keeping your protein options interesting. (There are only so many days a week one can eat lentils.)

We have good news for you. There's a way to make tempeh taste good. Really good. Actually, there's more than one way. And we've put them all together for you in this beautiful list below. Check it out and give tempeh another chance.
