4 February 2019 Yellow Lentils (Tempeh)

Yellow dehulled lentils were purchased from a bulk store. The purpose was to determine if they could be made into lentil tempeh. Lentils 500 ml were washed, and cooked at a gentle boil for about 30 minutes to make soft. They were cooled to ambient about 20C and starter was added about 1/2 teaspoon. The molds were used so I simply placed the beans in a plastic colander and placed in the top of the double boiler. I expected no positive results and promptly forgot them. After about 48 hours and in need of the double boiler and upon removing the lid found a perfect tempeh in the colander.A real case of serendipity. Then fermenting temperature was ambient about 20C. This is a perfect method to make tempeh without extra equipment and is a high quality product.

Just ferment in a pot covered at room temperature about 20C for about three days. Don't let the cooking lentils bubble too much just a gentle cooking. Presto perfect tempeh.

Feed the world! I pay about a dollar a pound for the yellow dehulled lentils.
