When we go meet our customers, a lot of them is asking for chickpea tempeh. We were like… why chickpea? But then we make that happen and here’s a few reasons of why our tempeh-fan went crazy for this one.

  • Very similar texture with soy tempeh without the worries!
  • Not a complete source of protein but still a great one
  • Help manage your weight

Due to its fairly low-calorie density, it has appetite lowering effects and a potential to help reduce calorie intake at meals

  • Low GI to support healthy blood sugar control
  • Has been a popular option in plant-based diet for centuries 

About me:

Our chickpea tempeh has a very similar texture and appearance compared to the traditional soy. you might not even be able to tell rom outside without the label ;)

The taste though, is very different as chickpea tempeh is more creamy, rich in flavour and there is barely a bitterness to it.

This is also a great soy tempeh alternative if you are looking for something very similar and not really a kitchen person. It’s great without marinating!

 Cooking tips:

Cut your chickpea tempeh to whatever shape you like, throw into your stir-fry mix, fry or oven bake.  I personally like to deep fry for about 2 minutes then sprinkle some salt for a snack (a very satisfying one!)
