My boy loves tempeh too. In fact, along, I am not aware of tempeh until lately.

Guess, the awareness of goodness of tempeh is not there yet.

Most of the time, I coat it with some spice salt and oil and toasted it. Easier, unless I am deep-frying something, I will then give it a quick deep-fry.

Cheers :)
