I can not find tempeh anywhere at all where I live. Is there a place online that sells it? I have only been able to find one website, and they only sell it flavored with garlic.
Using tempeh with sea vegetables, this is a mouth-watering mixture that is so versatile it can be a sandwich filling or the main dish at dinner.
This “mockfish” mixture is amazing tossed with pasta or used as a stuffing. You can even process it for a delicious paté with the flavor of the sea but without the pain.
2 T. olive oil
1 pkg. tempeh with sea vegetables, diced
1 small to medium onion, chopped finely
1 sheet Nori seaweed, cut into small pieces
1 T. vegan mayonnaise
Heat a heavy skillet on medium heat until hot and add the olive oil and onions and sauté until translucent and softened, about 5 minutes. Add the diced tempeh and cook, stirring often, until tempeh is nicely browned. Remove the pan from the heat and add the pieces of seaweed. Cool the mixture for 10-15 minutes before adding the mayonnaise, then mix well, and season to taste.
Use as a sandwich, ravioli, or wonton filling, or as a topping for crostini.
Yes, you can add additional Nori flakes to the tempeh. Nori flakes or powder (available in most markets) will add more flavor than chopped seaweed sheets. Add a little at a time and taste as you go along.
Hi Libby, Tempeh is perishable so shipping it might get a little pricey. That may also depend on how much you buy. Check online! If you have any Asian markets nearby they may also stock it. I use a few brands, all organic. Soyboy, Lightlife and storebrand by Wholefood. Hopefully your grocer can find a supplier and carry Tempeh for you. Check in and let us how how you fare! Thanks for writing and good luck.
