Tempeh Tasting with The Hearty Vegan
11am – 2pm
The Hearty Vegan makes organic, local hand-made tempeh now to be sold at Green Gate Farms. Tempeh is a fermented soyfood with a delicious flavor, and meat-like texture. It’s high in protein, magnesium, riboflavin, phosphorus and manganese, low in saturated fats, and has no cholesterol. Tempeh makes a fantastic meat substitute. Come meet the founder of Hearty Vegan and taste some alternative protein!
