TempehIf you know anything about me, it’s that my favorite non-meat is Tempeh. Now for you non-veg heads TEM-PAY is fermented soybeans (but it’s not tofu!).

You non-vegheads are a real headache!). They also come in Original (for some reason “Original” defaults to Prawn, which I won’t be eating), Balado (BBQ-duh!), and a different Original in a purple package. You were waiting for this high-calibur culinary critique. Admit it.  Yum and yum. this food post will self-destruct in 3…2…
