Hmmm pie. For me, pie is always referred to something sweets, fruits, or seasonal. Part of the reasons might be my likeness of strawberry fruits during Summer. However, today’s recipe won’t say anything related to sweets at all.
Back in Asia, we often have tempeh daily since the price is very cheap. You can get a block of tempeh for less than $1 – still fresh and wrapped in banana leaves. While in US, you have to pay about $3.50 for frozen tempeh. We actually found one seller for fresh tempeh and they sell it for $5, however it takes us almost 2 hours to buy them. So, with today’s
economy gas price, let’s just atick with frozen for now.
So, what is tempeh? Tempeh is a fermented soy product from Indonesia. This tempeh is made with soybeans and incubated with methods that make this tempeh firm and fresh by using traditional Indonesian techniques. Because of the firm texture, Indonesian style tempeh can be cut into very small, thin strips that will not fall apart during cooking and will bring the goodness of soy to a variety dishes.
There are so many ways to eat tempeh – from deep fried, baked, steamed, or even use it as condiments aka chili sauce. However today I’ll take you to a whole new world of tempeh, twisted in Thai version and baked as a pie dish.
