Homemade Soy Milk
I just recently made Soy Milk. 1/2 half pound of soy beans makes about 12 gallon of milk.
Soak beans 24 hours, change water once in a while. rinse beans after soaking, rub them in your hands to loosen hulls, measure beans, use 1 part beans to 3 parts water.
put 1 cup beans in blender and add 2 cups water. puree as fine as possible,
pour this mixture into large pan, rinse out blender with 1 cup water.
Repeat until all beans have been blended.
Bring water to boil and simmer for about an hour, strain this mixture through cheese cloth or any porous cloth.
Let drain and then squeeze as much more “milk” out as possible.
You now have Soy milk.
The “grits” or paste that is left is called Okara and can be used in different recipes, such as cakes or cookies, I added about 1 cup full to a 4 loaf recipe for banana bread and it doesn't even show and adds extra protein. It can be added to meatloaf or any ground beef recipe to boost the protein. It takes on the flavor of whatever it is mixed with although it is visable in some mixtures such as meat sauce for spaghetti.
Ounce for ounce Soy has more protein than meat and is a staple in a Vegan diet.
