Digest Fat-free


  • 1 lb Tempeh
  • 16 oz Tomato sauce, Mcdougall
  • 1/4 c Onion; chopped fine
  • 1/4 c Cider vinegar
  • 1/4 c Soy sauce, low sodium
  • 1/2 ts Curry powder
  • 1/4 ts Ground ginger


Preparation Time: 0:50 Tempeh is a compact patty made by fermenting cooked hulled soybeans with a beneficial mold that binds the beans together. Other legumes, such as peas and lentils, and also grains, such as rice, wheat, and barley -- alone or in various combinations -- are sometimes added. Because it has a dense, solid consistency, it is often used to replace meat in various dishes and on sandwiches. Like tofu, it is high in fat and protein. You will find tempeh in the refrigerated or frozen food sections of your natural food store. Refrigerated, it lasts a week, and frozen, it lasts indefinately. Freezing does not change its texture appreciably.
Cut the tempeh into bite-sized pieces and set aside. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the remaining ingredients in a small saucepan and simmer over low heat until the sauce thickens slightly, about 10 minutes. Spoon a thin layer of sauce on the bottom of a 2 - quart baking dish. Add the tempeh pieces and cover with the remaining sauce. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes.
