Maple Balsamic Tempeh Bites

Maple Balsamic Tempeh Bites

Tempeh is one of my favourite plant-based proteins. I love that one serving boasts 16 grams of protein and 5 grams of fibre! If you’re not familiar with tempeh, it’s made through a fermentation process that binds the soybeans into a cake form.

The combination of the balsamic and maple make for a tangy sweet flavour that is to die for. Tamari is a wheat-free soy sauce that gives the perfect punch of saltiness. I’m telling you… You will LOVE these Maple Balsamic Tempeh Bites.

Tempeh vs. Tofu

  • Tempeh has twice as much protein than tofu.
  • Tempeh is a good source of fibre, while tofu contains very little or none.
  • Tempeh is a fermented food with natural probiotics, tofu, on the other hand, is not.
  • Tempeh is a cultured food, making it much easier to digest than tofu.
  • Tempeh has a firmer texture and nuttier flavour than tofu.

Clearly, tempeh is the big winner in the nutrition department. You can easily cut it into strips, cubes, or triangles to enjoy in a variety of ways. I love serving these Maple Balsamic Tempeh Bites up as an appetizer with my Rosemary Garlic Aioli or adding it as my main protein with some brown rice and veggies.

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

After years of dealing cystic breakouts, I cleared up my skin for good by fixing my gut, liver and hormones. I went back to school for nutrition and then said seeya later to my job in television. I launched an online nutrition business (before working from home was a thing) so I could help as many women as possible feel confident AF in their own skin, too.

"My skin is definitely consistently good now."

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

Sara P.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
