Tempeh or Tempe Nutrients and Benefits

tempehTempeh or Tempe is a highly nutritious fermented food that is made from soybeans. Many people replace meat with Tempeh. To make Tempeh people cook and dehull the soybeans, then inoculate them in some culturing agent, and then incubate the inoculated soybeans overnight until they form into a solid looking cake.
