Creating flavors of vegan cheese that you can’t buy in the shops! Through our monthly cheese workshop with always different recipes or 1:1 cooking classes I will teach you how to make your own delicious dairy-free cheese at home.

The workshop session is a step-by-step demonstration including the tasting of each recipe. You will learn how to make cheese using a cooked method which gives a meltable, gratable, firm cheese.

Food Education at Garden International School Bangkok

Events, VeganCrush | October 29, 2018 | By

These beautiful kids reminded me of when I was in their age and knew nothing about nutrition and the impact of food on our body and environment.

Today I shared how important it is to be aware of the food that we eat and that it is not about veganism, vegetarianism or any other kind of diet but about the awareness and knowledge of the food that we choose to consume every day. I also shared that food is not only what we eat but also what we see, touch and hear to 7th and 12th-grade students.

I am super amazed how responsive and curious everyone was and especially how open and perceiving our kids nowadays are to important topics like today. What we learn becomes a part of who we are.

How to make Tempeh with White Beans from scratch

Stuff I Make, VeganCrush | September 18, 2018 | By

How to make tempeh with white beans from scratch

Tempeh is originated from Indonesian, Java Island which is one of the very few soy products that are not originated from China. Traditionally tempeh is made with fermented soybeans and has a rich smoky and mushroomy flavor with a firm, nutty texture. Tempeh is famous among vegans and is used in dishes to replace meat because of its high protein content. Tempeh is a great way of adding more beautiful textures to your dishes. It is packed with nutrients and contains natural antibiotics produced by the Rhizopus molds.   

Instead of soybeans, I am using white beans in this recipe to do the tempeh. The beans I have used are U.S. pulses. In fact, you could use any kind of beans. It is a wonderful alternative to soy and the white beans provide a mild creamy flavor with an earthy, hearty taste perfect for salads or sautéed in with your favorite vegetables. 

The tempeh starter culture can be sourced from different health shops depending on your location. All you need is patience for this recipe and you will be greatly rewarded, I promise! 🙂 It is way better than store-bought, GMO-free and unpasteurized. 

I hope this recipe is helpful and it inspires you to create your own version of tempeh. 🙂

Organic White Bean Tempeh
Yields 2
How to make tempeh from scratch with white beans instead of soybeans.
Write a review
  1. 250g white beans
  2. 1 tsp tempeh starter
  3. 2 zip locker bags
  1. Soak the beans overnight (about 16hours). Drain and rinse with fresh water and dehull the beans by massaging it into the water until the hulls float up. Then pour them out and repeat. Dehull as many beans as possible. This step will be worth it as it will give you a really smooth and creamier consistency.
  2. Cook the beans in 400g of water for about 20min. It should be cooked but still crunchy. Ones the tempeh is done you will be cooking it again, so you want to make sure that it doesn't turn too soft.
  3. Drain the water and let it completely cool down.
  4. Add the tempeh starter and mix until well cooperated.
  5. Place the beans in 2 plastic bags about 12cm x 20cm (5"x8"). Using a toothpick or a skewer poke holes through the bag with 2cm (1-inch) intervals. The beans should be layered about 2cm (1-inch) thick. Divide the beans between the two bags. Seal the bags and flatten the beans out evenly. Leave the beans at a surrounding with a temperature between 25°- 30° (85-90 Fahrenheit) for 36 to 48 hours.
  6. After 24 hours, the white mycelium will start to cover the surface of the beans. You may want to lower the heat source because the beans will start generating their own heat as the mold grows.
  7. After 24 to 48 hours, the tempeh should smell pleasantly nutty. The tempeh is done when the entire surface is covered with dense, white mycelium and is bound together firmly as a cake.
  8. Transfer the tempeh cakes to airtight bags or containers and store in the refrigerator up to 1 week.
  9. You could also make a bigger batch and freeze your tempeh up to 3 months. Only make sure to steam your tempeh for 20min, let it cool down, wrap it in a container or plastic bag before placing in the freezer.
  1. Enjoy pan-fried with your favorite dip or in salads, curries, stews, pasta, and so many more dishes!
  2. When you make tempeh at home, it is always possible that some bacteria will sneak in and contaminate the whole batch. This bacteria could grow during the fermentation process, therefore, I recommend to process your tempeh by cooking, steaming, baking etc. before you consume it.

Vegan Shirataki Noodle in Teriyaki Mushroom Sauce Recipe, Gluten-Free

Stuff I Make, VeganCrush | August 31, 2018 | By

Vegan Shirataki Noodle in Teriyaki Mushroom Sauce

Whip up this low carb, paleo & keto and gluten-free creamy shrooom noodle dish in only 15minutes!

These noodles are thin and translucent with a gelatinous texture. They’re made from konjac yam but mostly composed of just water and soluble fiber called glucomannan (5 grams of fiber per 100 grams of cooked noodles). These are a popular ingredient in Japanese cuisine. They also go by other names like konjac noodles, miracle noodles or konnyaku noodles. They’re effectively zero calories and carbs and since they’re sourced from yam, they’re inherently gluten-free, vegan, paleo-friendly, and keto-friendly. 

Shirataki noodles usually come pre-cooked and packed in water, so they only need to be rinsed and sometimes soaked quickly in hot water. They’re great for bulking up salads or to use in spring and sushi rolls!

Get started with this delicious mushroom pasta recipe. They soak up all the sumptuous flavors that are in the sauce leaving you with a comforting and satisfying meal for lunch or dinner. 🙂
