How To Make Tempeh

Thetraveljunkie.org – One of the things we really miss from Indonesia is the traditional Indonesian Tempeh. Our favourite is the delicious Tempeh that the grandmothers make in the local village in Mertelu, Gunungkidul in Yogyakarta from beans including soy and broad beans that they grow in their fields. Although we have helped make it back there under the guidance of the villagers it was a learning curve to make authentic Indonesian Tempeh back in Australia. Tempeh is readily available in Australian supermarkets and health stores but it never quite tasted the same as the homemade Tempeh. So we decided it was time to learn. We have had some success and some failed attempts- the Melbourne cold weather isn’t the best for Tempeh making. But it was lots of fun to learn and we made some yummy Tempeh.
