Cheese and Tempeh and Jam – Oh My!

by Meghann on March 16, 2011

Since I began reading blogs over three years ago, I’ve been introduced to A LOT of new foods and combos.

There’s Massaged Kale


Green Smoothies

and Chia Seed Pudding (I really need to make this again.)

But one of my favorites came from Kath and her genius creations of Tempeh, Cheese, and Jam Sandwiches.


Call me crazy, but I actually like the somewhat bland taste of tempeh. It’s best when cold and fresh out of the package. Maybe it’s the chew? If you pair that chew with the sweet jam, salty cheese, and add in some toasted bread for crunch – you have my ideal sandwich.


I enjoyed that beautiful sandwich today with a side of carrots and hummus


And pretzels with mustard (RIP bag of pretzels – you will be missed)


A trio of good eats for lunch. πŸ™‚


Whoa – is it really almost 3:00? Where did this day go?!?!

What Matters Most


Attune Foods is holding a Facebook contest from now until May 16th where one lucky winner will walk away with a year’s supple of Attune Food products! Head over to their Facebook Welcome page for details.

*Bonus* I’m judging the contest and I do accept bribes. Kidding. Maybe. πŸ˜‰

Full disclosure: I’m judging the contest as part of my Attune Brand Ambassadorship and will receive a small payment from Attune in return for my help.

In the spirit of the contest I’ll leave you with this question – What does matter most to you? πŸ™‚

I’ve never had tempeh! But everything must taste good with some cheese & jelly πŸ™‚

I need to try that massaged Kale too! Looks like a great lunch I can take to the office.

2 Stacy @ Every Little Thing March 16, 2011 at 2:52 pm

Lots of things matter to me, almost too many to name! Mostly love, health, education, and helping those in need.

Thanks again for the chat today! I had fun.

Yay! Glad you were able to join us πŸ™‚

I love tempeh but have yet to try it in a sandwich- not sure why, especially since I always eat it raw in salads. I feel like jam would taste awesome with it, though!!

Yes yes! I once did tempeh, jam and goat’s cheese and it was the BOMB! Fresh tempeh is soo good πŸ™‚
Hmm…my mum & my horse matter most to me πŸ™‚

What matters most to me? At the moment? Coffee.
I kid I kid. I guess that would be my family they matter most to me.
Love the food, I’ve only had tempeh cooked, I might have to try it cold.

8 Heather @ Side of Sneakers March 16, 2011 at 2:55 pm

Definitely a unique lunch πŸ˜‰ I like plain tempeh as is but not any of the pre- flavored kinds.

9 Megan @ Loving the little things March 16, 2011 at 2:56 pm

I never have, but still think I need to try tempeh!!

And , hello super woman!
Today on my blog, I blogged all my eats, and that’s no easy feat! I had no idea how time consuming it is. Def have a whole new respect for what you do!!!

10 Meghann March 17, 2011 at 10:28 am

It’s a lot harder than people think it is to blog the day’s eats. πŸ™‚

11 Gavi @ Gavi Gets Going! March 16, 2011 at 2:57 pm

I’ve never tried tempeh, but it looks really delicious on your sandwich. I love strange flavor combos, too! My family, boyfriend, and health matter most to me. Enjoy your Wednesday!

12 Courtney @ The Granola Chronicles March 16, 2011 at 2:58 pm

My family, health & faith in God matter the most to me! And…ice cream & wine. πŸ™‚

13 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat March 16, 2011 at 2:59 pm

I’m with you on liking the bland taste of tempeh!! I’m the same way for tofu too… like you said, call me crazy!

What matters to me…. I think happiness. Being happy myself, and others around me being happy. Food also matters… a lot. πŸ™‚

The shots of the pretzels has me craving them now – and I don’t think I have had pretzels since college.

I still have yet to try tempeh. I want to but it scares me for some reason. I like tofu so surely I’d like tempeh?

Tempeh, cheese, and jam sounds like an odd combo, but something tells me that it’s out of this world. Weird food is always the most delicious!
