Making Tempeh

Tempeh is a great addition to plant-based meals. Especially when marinated well. Here’s a short description of the way I like to make my tempeh. See also how to marinate it well below.

For tempeh spores see:

  1. Cook 150-200 grams of soy beans and a spoon of vinegar for 50 minutes
  2. Dry the beans on a plate next to an open window, stir them every few minutes
  3. Add one teaspoon of tempeh spores and stir well
  4. Pour the soybeans into breathable container (I use an Asian steaming basket filled with baking paper)
  5. Let the beans sit for 36 hours in a temperature of 30 degrees
  6. Enjoy your Tempeh! 😊
