    Ingredients
    Serves: 4

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Place the garlic in a small mixing bowl. Pour water and salt into the mixing bowl, mix well.
    2. Slice the tempeh 2cm (3/4 in) thick and score both sides of the tempeh. Marinate the tempeh in the garlic, water and salt mixture for 20 minutes.
    3. Pan fry the tempeh in a deep frying pan with oil until golden brown on both sides.

    Note:

    Tempeh, popular in Indonesia, is made from soybeans, much like tofu. It's taste and nutritional profile is quite different, however. It has a stronger flavour and more fibre and nutrients than tofu. It should be readily available in health food shops.

    Something else. This was the first time I had tried/cooked tempeh, and this was a very pleasant surprise. This recipe is simple and delicious. I cut the tempeh into squares and fried them on all sides. We dipped them in soy sauce, ketchup and hp. Great recipe, thanks! - 24 Jul 2008
