Lunch Menu – Sardine with Tempeh

My favorite soy-based food is tempeh (or tempe in Indonesian). Tempeh is made by a natural culturing and controlled fermentation process that binds soybeans into a cake form – an excellent source of protein for vegetarians and it’s packed with flavor! Although it excudes a-not-so-pleasant-smell, once you cook it the smell goes off. The tempeh dishes sold outside are usually deed-fried in order to eliminate the fermented soy odour. For yesterday’s lunch I made sardine with tempeh with lots of tomatoes and onions. I included ginger to eliminate the fermented soy-bean smell and it was delicious! – accompanied with brown rice and blanched baby asparagus – a delightful lunch.
