FNH SEMINAR RECIPE: Marinated Tempeh - Powerful probiotic soy powerhouse for our gut critters!

Tempeh is a fermented soy product which is a delicious addition to your nutritional routine. Tempeh comes with a variety of health benefits. It is high in protein, prebiotics, and a plethora of vitamins and minerals.

Tempeh has a strong, nutty flavor. It also tends to absorb the flavors of any food or sauce to which it is added, making it a perfect base for our probiotic recipe below.


We hope you enjoy creating the recipe below and find deliciously, nutritiously creative ways to use it - and yes, please share your own creations and how to get this amazing power into our bodies, thank you. The seminar on the 13th of April will include more variations of ways to marinate and enjoy raw tempeh.

Step One - Prepare Ingredients

1 Medium Red Onion (diced)

1 Medium White Onion (diced)

10 Cloves Garlic (diced)

  • Cut your raw defrosted tempeh into bite sized pieces - size depends on your bite size!

Step Four - Final Preparation
