Meet tofu’s weird-but-cool cousin, tempeh. Made from fermented whole soybeans, it’s been around since the 12th century. We call ours Treehouse Tempeh in honor of our fearless founder, who lived in a treehouse during his early tempeh-making days. Tempeh gets along great with a tasty marinade, like this breakfast-y Smoky Maple Bacon–style sauce.
HOW TO MAKE:Stovetop: Heat 1 to 2 Tbsp oil in pan (cast iron is best). Add tempeh strips to hot oil and cook 1½ to 2 minutes each side until nicely browned. Delicious for breakfast, in a salad or in a BLT.
