Luke from NSW has come up with an alternative to single use perforated bags. It looks fabulous and he assured me it passed the taste test!
Can I use tofu to make desserts?
Yes, there are some really quick and healthy recipes for sweet treats.
Here are a few.
Banana leaves are the traditional wrapping used for tempeh fermentation and give a great result if you can source them.
Is there an alternative to soybeans for making tempeh?
Most legumes are suitable for tempeh making, some with the added bonus that they are available as splits (pre hulled).
Try combinations of split peas, chick peas, mung dal, lupin, lentils. You can also add small amount of cooked rice or sunflower seeds.
Another great result! Tempeh loves the summer warmth.
Can I add flavourings to tofu when I make it?
Seaweed, dried herbs, chilli flakes and grated vegetables can be added to firm tofu before coagulation. Chopped walnuts are often used in traditional tofu making for special occaisions.
