It’s one of my favorite dishes. Tempe is one of traditional food from my country, Indonesia. What is tempe? Tempe is a food made ??from the fermentation of soy beans or some other materials that use some kind of fungus Rhizopus, such as Rhizopus oligosporus, Rh. oryzae, Rh. stolonifer (bread mold), or Rh. arrhizus. The preparation of this fermentation is generally known as “yeast tempeh”. (taken from here). The recipe i got from my mother.
