TEMPEH "CHICKEN" STRIPS

Tempeh is a plant-based protein originating from Indonesia. It is made from fermented soy that has been pressed together to form a cake-like patty. It has a mild nutty flavor and takes on whatever flavors you are cooking with. Tempeh is also loaded with prebiotics, which is a type of fibre that provides fuels for the healthy gut bacteria and can improve digestive health. This recipe is also vegan and a family favorite!
