If you're nervous about trying Tempeh (For those of you who live in the LA area) a great place to taste it cooked a MILLION different delicious ways is a place called Real Food Daily. Awesome. PS If you end up going, the fresh squeezed juice is addictive.

mmm. i first had tempeh in a taco at 'native foods' and i liked it a lot. even though i'm not a vegetarian, i still LOVE meatless options and could definitely eat an exclusively vegetarian diet should i ever need to. yum.
