Helpful hints

  • For a flavor change replace sesame oil with your favorite flavored oil.
  • Tempeh made from whole soybeans mixed with rice or millet., then fermented. It has a nutty-flavor and absorbs flavors from marinades or seasonings added during cooking.

I need 3 meat and 1 veg. Please. Dietitian comment: Increase your portion of tempeh to 6 slices instead of 3 slices to closer meet your protein goals.

I was told soy beans had 211mg per 1/2 cup, which is extremely high for one with renal disease. Moderator comment: The portion of tempeh for one serving contains less than 1/2 cup soybeans. The phosphorus and potassium content for one serving is still acceptable for a low phosphorus, low potassium diet.
