Customer reviews - Vbites Cheatin' Tempeh Rashers 120g


Lovely in an omelette - Sun 13th Dec 2015

Fry these up and cut them into bitesized chunks - then fry a few veggies of your choice (e.g. red onion until soft, then a good handful of spinach) and add 2-3 beaten, seasoned eggs and the tempeh chunks. Cook on low-medium heat until set on the bottom, then flash under the grill to finish the top.

I found these to not have much taste but went ok when topped with tomato sauce in a sandwich.

Not the best tempeh rashers I've had but taste good in sandwiches

VLT - Sat 23rd May 2015

Perfect for the classic VLT. Toast white bread (3 slices if you can handle it), fill sandwich with cooked rashers, simple green lettuce (I like good old soft fresh garden varieties), tomato and garlic mayo.

Firm, thick texture, crisps well. We like adding pink salt while frying. Fantastic taste.
Tempeh is our new best friend. We tried tempeh bacon in our local vegetarian and vegan cafe and just had to find some; that's how we initially discovered this website! :)
Don't cut it into small strips for a carbonara like we tried because it won't retain its texture. They need to be kept as whole rashers for frying.

I'd say better than the real thing.

They have a texture like crispy bacon, pretty much much the same taste but without the same feeling of having eaten a lot of fat.

The only drawback is that they break apart a bit easier which is slightly annoying when you're trying to stick your fork in but who cares.

These are a great vegan bacon substitute, we usually use smoked tofu, but these made a nice change.

Salty - Fri 21st Feb 2014

I found these to be a bit to salty.

chew goodness - Tue 7th Jan 2014

Really great flavour! I have tried to make things this flavour, but can't seem to get it right. There are perfect, except as usual, I wish there were more than just 4. Need larger packets!

Tempeh rashers - Tue 29th May 2012

These are the best bacon substitute - I've tried a few which are like bits of cardboard. If you fry these in soya sauce they do a great job in a veggie BLT.

Gorgeous - Thu 15th Sep 2011

I've found in the past that raw tempeh can have an odd taste, but I was getting such strong urges for some I thought I'd give these a go!
There are four 'rashers' to a pack, 2 are wide enough to fit a large slice of sandwich bread.

They are absolutely lovely :) The flavour is subtle and great, enhances rather than overpowers the tempeh flavour (which is savoury and a little sour. Nicer than it sounds, honest!).
The texture is firm to the bite, and you can crisp it up in the pan. All in all I found this far more enjoyable than veggie/vegan bacon and it's far healthier!
This means you can have your veggie rasher in the knowledge you're doing yourself good too! I'd imagine that if you really crisp them up they'd be great over a stirfry or a nasi goreng (it originated in Indonesia in fact ;)

Tempeh is made using an natural process using a culture to ferment the soy beans. This leaves the soybeans more easily digestible, it retains the whole bean which increases the amount of protein, dietary fibre and vitamins available (straight off wikipedia lol ;)..
Also just to note I used less oil to cook them than was advised.
