Tempeh is made from soybeans that have been fermented and compacted into a firm, dense cake. Some varieties also contain quinoa, brown rice, flax seeds, and spices. Tempeh is chewy and bears a nutty, earthy taste, while tofu has a neutral taste and tends to absorb the flavours of the foods it’s cooked with.

If you have a soybean allergy, there are a whole lot of Tempeh options that are soybean-free. They are usually made from hemp protein, legumes, and whole grains.
