There are times when I find myself missing the UK, and then I read a thread like this and am glad that I live in a part of the world where I can find tempeh in pretty much every major supermarket.

This is what Quorn (bastards) have done to places where they've managed to get a foothold. They've driven out real vegan staples like tofu and tempeh and replaced them with nasty-looking fake sausages and burgers.

I guarantee you if Quorn had never been invented you would have no trouble finding tempeh, it would be sitting right there in the supermarket alongside 3 or 4 different brands of organic tofu, and all the different Redwood products.

I find tempeh here in the UK pretty disappointing, I got spoiled just buying in Dutch supermarkets where it's quite normal, and much tastier.

Look out for Redwoods tempeh rashers, health food shops probably your best bet

If all else fails, buy in bulk from places like http://www.lembas.co.uk/lembas.html and then freeze it.

I found it chilled in 'Food for Thought' in Guildford, Surrey, and frozen in 'Elixir' in Wadebridge, Cornwall.

Both the Impulse brand. So tasty!

If you fancy setting up a food co-op, I can recommend ordering from Suma wholefoods- minimum order varies depending on what part of the country you are in. Only problem can be storage space, as you buy most things by the case- currently have a fridge and freezer full of this month's supply of tofu :D check out www.sumawholefoods.coop

Most supermarkets in NZ stock three to four different types of plain tofu (or even more!), two or three types of marinated tofu and tempeh. And most of it is organic and reasonably priced. And organic stores normally sell marinated tempeh.

I thought UK supermarkets would be the same.

I was wondering about this while on holiday.

Some tempeh culture I ordered arrived today, so I'm going to have a go at making my own.

How many people on here live in/near Surrey?
