Tempeh is a high-protein soy product that originated in Indonesia in the early 1800s. It is made by soaking soybeans and partially cooking them, then fermenting them for a day or two, resulting in a unique texture and earthy flavor. Tempeh is also a great source of essential minerals, like calcium and manganese.
