    Jane has never been a huge fan of tempeh. We've tried it a number of times. I like it, but we both much prefer seitan. Recently, Lightlife came out with a new Tempeh product, Tempeh-tations. It comes in three varieties: Zesty Lemon, Classic BBQ, and Ginger Teriyaki.

    Last night we tried the Ginger Teriyaki. The package is 6 ounces and makes two servings - 160 calories each. Jane sauteed up a bunch of vegetables and made some brown rice to go along with it. She also added some chicken vegetable stock to the sautee pot to make a little sauce, otherwise it would have been a tad dry.

    The verdict: I thought it was delicious. Jane thought it was better than other tempeh she'd tried and would have it again, but still had a hint of bitterness. What she loved most about this product is its ease of preparation. It's another option for a quick and easy dinner, and I will happily consume it.

    Next time we'll try the BBQ I think.

    1. I’ve tried the lemon and the ginger teriyaki and enjoyed them both. The usually bitterness that puts some people off tempeh doesn’t bother me, so I didn’t even notice it here. They sure make throwing together a quick and tasty meal very easy.

    2. Hi Foodeater,

      I didn’t notice it either, but Jane thought it was somewhat evident. Although not enough to keep her from preparing this meal again.

      Hi Melissa,
      Thanks for catching that. No, not chicken, vegetable. Jane wrote a post to correct me tonight… Vegan Chicken Broth.

    3. Sorry to burst anyone’s veggie bubble, but the Lightlife Tempehtations (Zesty Lemon Flvored), are beyond repulsive! I’ve been a vegetarian most of my life and have tried literally everything, but these crumbly garlic-laced “things” were the worst things I’ve ever ingested!!! No exaggeration. Spend your money on anything but this crap!
