Basic Scrambled Tempeh
20 mins (prep 5, cooking 15)
10 ingredients
4 servings
From Isa Chandra Moskowitz's book, Vegan Brunch. This is a refreshing change of pace for breakfast time, but would make a great meal at any time of day. She suggests that steaming the tempeh before preparing this recipe gives it a juicier texture and reduces the bitterness of tempeh. I steamed it for five minutes with 2 tablespoons of water in the microwave, but if you like a stronger tempeh flavor you can skip that.
