This recipe could qualify as a local specialty, because as far as I know, Gainesville, Florida has the best tempeh on Earth. Two equally matched local tempeh makers, Artie and Jose, compete for the the veggie-crunchy hearts of townies and restaurant-owners alike. In fact, I designed this recipe in an attempt to duplicate an appetizer I once ordered at a restaurant downtown. Mission accomplished! I loved digging into these buttery, spicy, tangy, messy "wings". No bones about it! Har har.
Fermented soy products like tempeh are easy to digest and packed with protein. I had mine with fried onions, celery sticks and grape tomatoes for a total of seven ingredients on this plate! The tempeh is also fantastic with blue cheese.
4-Ingredient Buffalo Tempeh
