Chickpea Tempeh Recipe #vegan #vegetarian #soup #breakfast #lunch

I as of late found chickpea tempeh and cherished it, considerably more than customary soy tempeh. It has a marginally unique surface, it's somewhat gentler yet has no harsh trailing sensation at all like customary ones have! The thing is, it's not as generally accessible and more often than not increasingly costly. After a fast search on the best way to make essential tempeh, I attempted to adjust it for chickpeas, and it worked!

Not just it is totally without soy, it is additionally tasty and much simpler to make than you may might suspect! Prepare for A LOT of bit by bit photographs!

We should begin from the earliest starting point, what is it precisely? Tempeh is a customary Indonesian aged nourishment. It is made by cooking soybeans and maturing them with a shape called Rhizopus Oryzae for 24-48H. When the maturation is done, every one of the soybeans are bound together into a smaller cake by a white shape. It at that point gets sliceable and prepared to cook.

Everything begins by splashing the chickpeas medium-term. At the point when I did my first tests I went with huge garbanzo bean, yet because of their size, the white form experienced difficulty developing, particularly within in view of an excessive amount of void space between the chickpeas. It brings about a tempeh that isn't excessively minimal and disintegrates effectively. So I suggest utilizing the littlest chickpeas you can discover, or read the note toward the finish of the formula in the event that you intend to utilize garbanzo beans. I surmise split chickpeas will work as well, simply lessen the cooking time.

The following stage is to deplete and flush the chickpeas, move them to an enormous pot, spread with water and cook from 1 to 1H30, or until they are delicate yet keep their shape well. You don't need half-cooked or soft chickpeas!

  • 1 cup dry small chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar (I used white rice vinegar)
  • 1 tsp tempeh starter


  1. Place the chickpeas in a large bowl, cover with clean water and soak overnight.
  2. The next day, drain and rinse the chickpeas. Transfer to a large cooking pot, cover with water (about 2-inch higher than the chickpeas). Bring to a boil and let simmer for 1 hour. Depending on the size of your chickpeas it might take up to 1 and 1/2 hour. They must be soft but not mushy. If some foam forms on the surface during cooking, remove it with a spoon to prevent any spillover.
  3. Once the chickpeas are cooked, drain them and leave them in the strainer for 30 minutes. After that, pat them dry using a paper towel to make sure they are mostly dry on the outside.
  4. Transfer to a large clean bowl. Add the white vinegar and stir to coat. Add the tempeh starter and mix well using a spoon until uniformly distributed.
  5. Using a metal skewer, or chopstick, prick some holes (at about 2-inch intervals) in a clean freezer bag. This step is important to create good air circulation and allow the mold to grow.
  6. Transfer the chickpeas to the freezer bag and form a rectangle of about 5×8 inches with a thickness of about 1-inch. Place the bag of chickpeas on a baking sheet and put in an oven with the light on for about 14 hours. I set the temperature of my oven to 86°F and let the door very slightly opened because I can’t just let the light on.
  7. After 14 hours, some white mold (not a lot) should have appeared on the chickpeas. You might also see some condensation inside the plastic bag, this is normal. It’s time to remove the baking sheet from the oven and let it ferment for another 24-36H in a dark and warm place. I recommend covering the chickpea bag with a clean towel to make sure it’s not under direct sunlight.
  8. Your tempeh is ready when it is fully covered with white mold and forms a solid cake, which usually happens at the 48-hour mark. It can be quicker if the temperature in your house is high.
  9. Raw tempeh will keep for up to a week in the refrigerator. If you want to freeze it: steam the tempeh for 25 minutes, let cool completely and wrap in plastic film before freezing.
