Story
My daughter was a little skeptical about this sandwich when I first mentioned making it for our sandwich episode. However after one bite, it quickly became one of her favorites. This sandwhich is so easy, delicious and best of all healthy. It’s a wonderful way to familiarize yourself with the nutty taste and texture of tempeh. Tempeh comes in a variety of flavors. If you are using it for the first time I recommend either the soy or three grain style.
Tempeh's is an Asian high protein food, its nutty flavor is something to die for and the reason for its popularity around the world. It is very intelligent of the Chef to try something like this with tempeh and come up with a healthy sandwich that is not restricted to Asians or rest of the world. Anyone who eats sandwich can try this. Even vegans can enjoy it as there is no animal product in the dish.
