We live in a remote earea of France and I am trying to make tofu using locally grown beans. I just tried Lupin which did not work. I triend many other types of beans before, with nos succes. Who has expecience with tofu making out of different type beans?

Jolanda, the soy bean has a whole different balance of protein and fat that any other bean (for example, it is the only one that has fat); I have never seen success with any other type bean for this.

Ellen I have mailed details on the Lupin bean that I have been experimenting with to your e-mail address. Lupins look very simmilar to Soya.

Pigeon peas can make tofu. Lupin can make lots of other things, see this article;

And it makes good tempeh, another fermented food.

Great article!!
Lupin tofu is mentioned again, so I'll keep on trying :-)

Yes, Lupin is great and very easy for making tempeh.
Today I used Lupin for humus.
The taste of the bean is indeed very good!
