**Notice Dark Grey Spots on Your Tempeh?**
If you some dark spots, on your tempeh, don't panic!! That is a completely normal. Some people often mistaken this for mould but those dark patches are actually spores that indicate the fermentation process is complete. If you want more information about how tempeh ferments, please click here!
Tempeh is a traditional Indonesian fermented product. We made our original tempeh with organic chickpeas instead of soybeans. Chickpea tempeh does have a different flavor and texture compared to soybean tempeh. Not only nutty but also creamier and with a distinct flavor and aroma. It is an acquired taste but once you start to like it you can get addicted to it - just like every other fermented foods!
We make every batch fresh in our kitchen from scratch and wrap it in a banana leaf - as they are made in Indonesia.
Enjoy the freshly made tempeh!
Why it's good for you:
Tempeh is made from whole beans. Therefore there will be a higher content of protein, fiber and vitamins compared to tofu. Tempeh is a good source of vegan protein and also the fermentation process makes the legumes easier to digest and absorb the micro and macro nutrients.
It is possible to eat tempeh as it is as the beans are cooked before being fermented. But it will definitely taste better when cooked.
Pan-fired with healthy oils with high smoke point (sunflower oil, sesame oil, coconut oil ghee or even cacao butter!) till it gains a nice crispy texture and a golden color then add a dash of seasoning with tamari soy sauce or coconut aminos. Or just a sprinkle of salt and pepper makes a great add on to your salad or wraps.
Oven baked with root vegetables with a dash of olive oil can not only be tasty but also an additional protein boost to your meal.
You can safely replace soy tempeh with chickpea tempeh for most recipes.
