Sweet & Sour Tempeh

Tempeh is a complete protein food made from soy beans and is originally from Indonesia. It is traditionally made through the natural process of fermentation, so it's easy on our digestion. It contains essential amino acids and Isoflavones. Isoflavones have many health benefits such as strengthening our bones, they help ease menopausal symptoms, reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and can help in reducing some cancers.
