Slice up a block of tempeh into 1/2'' thick slices and about 2 to 3 inches long. Drop into deep fryer. I recommend grapeseed oil. Takes about 3 - 4 minutes, but take out when it is a dark golden brown. I used pomegranate molasses with sea salt as a dip. You can put in salads, tacos, or with veggies.
