When purchasing tempeh be sure that it has been pasteurized. Raw tempeh should be cooked for at least 20 minutes in boiling water, then proceed with any recipe. Treat raw tempeh as you would raw meats to prevent cross contamination. Wash cutting boards, knives and hands after handling raw tempeh. Opened tempeh should always smell mushroom-like or yeasty.
If purchasing tempeh from the greenmarket, be sure to talk vendor on how to safely handle and consume their tempeh.
