What is a food box?
First of all we start with a brief introduction to the foodbox concept. A foodbox is a box that you can get delivered every week. In this box you will findall the necessary ingredients for a number of meals (e.g. 2 till 5 meals aweek). You choose the number of meals and the number of people (e.g. 3 or 4people). The most important advantages of a food box are: * Weekly new, varied and inspiring recipes * You don’t have to think about what you’re going to cook * You don’t have to go to the supermarket * You discover all kinds of new products and dishes * The recipes are usually ready within 30 minutes
Why this method works
All beans contain a good amount of starch but chickpeas, on it’s own isrelatively high. This is why when you make chickpea milk, you’ll see somestarch settle at the bottom (be sure to use that up when making the yogurt!).Starch, when heated thickens liquid (ie. vegan custard, gravy and mochi aregood examples of this). So when the chickpea milk is heated over the stove, itnaturally thickens up.While still very little research on this, chickpeas seem to have a prebioticproperty, which is how it can become its own starter. I have previously seencooked chickpeas used to make yogurt too but the idea of using its soakingwater intrigued me.

Is soaking water safe to consume?
I had this thought come to mind as well. So of course, I did my research andhaven’t found any hard evidence of this being true. There are a lot of forumsthat talk about why it *might* be potentially harmful (soaking water containswhat you’re trying to get rid of with dried beans… aka what makes some peoplegassy) but, in my experience for the past month I have not felt any differenceof discomfort.It’s like when aquafaba first came around. Everyone was skeptical about usingliquid of the beans because we’re always told to rinse it off but now it’sconsidered one of the best egg substitutes and used in all sorts of recipesand applications. However, if you are still concerned you can definitely useanother starter and use chickpea milk to keep it soy and nut free 🙂

How to Store Chickpea Yogurt
I found this chickpea yogurt to last in the fridge for about 5 days. While youcan blend the chickpea curd all at once and store it that day, it may separateso I do recommend blending it before serving to maintain that smooth andcreamy consistency. However, you can just re-stir it again if you prefer toblend it all at once.”
