Arepas with BUMI Tempeh in mexican Marinade



2 cups warm water
1 tsp sea salt, heaped
2 cups pre-cooked white cornmeal (from P.A.N)


2 ripe avocados
8-10 cherry tomatoes
2 tbsp coriander, chopped
½ onion, finely diced
½ lime
Pinch of salt


A small handful of radishes, thinly sliced
Spinach, chopped
Celery, julienned
1 pack (175g) Mexican BUMI tempeh


2 portions
Cook time: 25-30 minutes


1. To prepare the arepas: add all the ingredients into a bowl and stir with a spoon or your hands until a dough forms. The dough should not stick to your hands - you are looking for a moist and malleable dough that can easily be shaped into a ball.

2. Grab large handfuls of the dough, and roll into balls before gently flattening into thick disks.

3. Preheat a pan without any oil and carefully add the arepas one by one making sure that you do not overcrowd the pan. Cook each side of the arepa for 8 min - 10 min on low - medium heat.

4. Use the already warm pan from the arepas, add a little oil, and bake the tempeh on medium for a few minutes. Make sure to toss the tempeh a few times so that they cook evenly.

5. Meanwhile prepare guacamole base by mashing the avocados in a small bowl before adding the other ingredients and mixing well.

6. Assembly: Place a generous amount of guacamole and tempeh onto each arepa, top it with radish, spinach and celery. You could also make a cut into the side of each arepa, making a pocket similar to that of a pita that is perfect for filling.
