Do you mean tempeh?

Tempeh is a fermented soybean product, grainier and denser than tofu. Making it requires a starter to help it ferment.

Recipes can be found here.

Otherwise, you'll have to move to Arizona.


Tempe is a fermented with the fungus Rhizopus oligosporus, you will need to find a strain or starter to make it in your home. Once you have that, some boiling and some vinegar and a day and a half later you have tempeh.

  • Sorry for my misspelling. Any recipes on using it?

  • Sorry @abe, i'll be happy to help you fix any recipes that you find but we don't really do recipes exchanges here. It is a javanese product so I would start looking for recipes there. Commented Oct 20, 2010 at 18:02
