Lightlife Organic Tempeh

As you may have gathered by now, I don't like to cook. Wait, hold up -- I like to cook for certain people and I like to cook when I have all of the ingredients and cooking instructions ready to go. But as far as daily cooking goes, I'm just not the one. What does this have to do with Lightlife Tempeh? I'm getting to that part.

Back when I first went Vegetarian I was trying all of the crazy non-meats like tofu, seitan and of course, tempeh. Lightlife Garden Veggie Tempeh was the first tempeh I ever had, and to this day, still my favorite. The two ways I like to eat it are either in a stir-fry with veggies or in a T.L.T. -- both ways rule. Not knowing this, Lightlife send me a TON of tempeh late last year to try out and review. Why did it take me 10 months to blog it? I have no idea, I must REALLY be lazy.
  
So here we have the Lightlife Three Grain, Soy and Wild Rice Tempeh. All three are great for sure, with only subtle differences. All of them soak up marinade really well. Wild Rice has whole pieces of rice, while Three Grain has (obviously) grains throughout. The Soy seems to be Isa's favorite, so that's usually the one that  gets bought. 

Next is the Lightlife Garden Veggie, Fakin' Bacon and Flax Tempeh. So you already know of my love for the Garden Veggie, try it if you never have. The Fakin' Bacon is, as the title suggest, flavored smoky tempeh strips. Pretty awesome and perfect for TLT's. I hope to individually review it at some point.

In closing, I'm sure all of you have purchased Lightlife Tempeh at some point or another. If not, I'd highly advise you to because it's organic, cheap and tasty. If I can cook this stuff up, you can too!

  1. I tried the flax flavored one for the first time last week, and was very disappointed. I tried the recommendation of cooking it in soy, but I went a little overboard. This is only the 2nd time I've attempted cooking tempeh, and perhaps I just fail at it. I can't seem to get a crispy texture, which the packaging/instructions say you should. I'm not a fan of the uncooked tempeh texture.

  2. I'm trying to figure out if you can eat this stuff right out of the package! I'm too lazy to cook it!
