About the Event

In this online workshop we’ll be demonstrating how to make a batch of chickpea (garbanzo bean) miso! Chickpea miso is a fantastic all-purpose miso, slightly sweeter than traditional soy. This miso is also ready when fairly young, after about 2 months of fermentation (compared to 6-12 for traditional soy)! You can join us during class or simply watch, take notes and create on your own time!

What you’ll learn:

  • How to make your own miso from a variety of legumes
  • Which tools you need for success
  • What ingredients work best

What you’ll need to make Chickpea Miso with us:


  • 2 cups (350g) dry garbanzo beans
  • 2.5 cups (440) grams barley koji or rice koji
  • ½ cup plus 1 tablespoon sea salt plus a couple more cups for the fermentation vessel
  • 1 tablespoon of unpasteurized miso (optional but recommended... got any in your fridge?!)
  • 1 half-gallon sized wide mouth jar or crock (or larger)
  • Masher (optional)
  • Pickle tamper (optional)
  • Access to an internet-ready computer or tablet

Advance Prep:

  • The morning of class, soak chickpeas for 8-12 hours in water, then drain.
  • Boil the chickpeas in plenty of fresh water until soft, about one hour (or use a pressure cooker ~ 35 minutes)
  • Drain and reserve cooking water. Allow to cool.
  • Chickpeas should be cool to the touch before class begins. Please plan accordingly!

How the online workshop works:

  • We’ll email you a registration confirmation which includes the Zoom link and password. After the workshop, you’ll receive a PDF copy of the recipes and processes covered in the workshop
  • Step-by-step demonstrations
