Tempeh - Black Soybeans
Black Beans Tempeh
Black bean was literally and metaphorically a tough nut to crack. It took us months to get the consistency and texture right but Boy oh boy, is it delicious? This one sure is a personal favourite. We had been stuffing it in rolls, burgers, salads, and sides for soup at the office. It is a joy eating something healthy that tastes this good. The health benefits of black beans are endless. High in protein, fiber, and antioxidants while being extremely low in fat! Rich in folate, magnesium, iron, manganese, and thiamine. For a healthy heart, bones, and even eyes - black beans are a total package.

Have been purchasing tofu and tempeh from HOP for over 2 years. Love all their products. Excellent taste and nutritional value. The black bean tempeh is very unique and is amazing in stir fries
I found the smell and texture more appetizing than regular tempeh. It also tasted better in a variety of things like curries and pasta sauce.
