Smiling Hara specializes in not only traditional soy tempeh, but also other cultured beans such as Black Beans and Black-eyed Peas. The process by which tempeh is made from these beans is similar to that of soy beans as well as the nutritional benefits.

Hempeh was thought up as a way to partner with regional hemp growers, and offer the first ever hemp fortified, soy-free tempeh. Hempeh came to life as a result of our successful kickstarter campaign in November of 2014. 278 backers brought this product to life and our initial Peanut Hempeh is now for sale in our online store and across the region in Whole Foods Markets.
This is the perfect option for restaurant chefs and institutions. Our Foodservice Soy Hempeh packages come in 1.5 lb FROZEN blocks, and come 7 packages to a case, totaling 10.5 lbs per case. These are plain, fresh frozen, and are a wonderful blank slate for the creativity of chefs far and wide. Please contact us for pricing and an updated distributor list.
