New Meetup: Make your own tempeh

Sent on: Monday, September 13, 2010 12:03 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for The New York Permaculture Meetup Group!

What: Make your own tempeh

When: Tuesday, September 14,[masked]:00 PM

Price: $5.00 per person

Where: The Commons
388 Atlantic Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11217

Join Barry Schwartz and Grown in Brooklyn to learn how to make tempeh, an amazing food that is loaded with nutrients. The ingredients are simple, and the process is fascinating. Basically tempeh is made by cracking, dehulling and cooking beans, inoculating them with a Rhizopus spore and leaving them to ferment, during which time a mycelium forms and binds the beans together into a sliceable form. Because soybeans are becoming less popular (perhaps vegetarians just eat too much soy), we have found ways to make tempeh from a variety of beans (split pea, white bean and black beans, sometimes mixed with grains). Unlike commercial tempeh, fresh tempeh soaks up marinade easily and has a smooth and creamy texture. We make our tempeh from beans that are non GMO and grown organically. After class we will have a tasting and offer you some to take home.
