(makes about 2 pints, 1.2 litres)
Soak the beans in plenty of water for 2 days, changing the water twice
- 8 oz (225g) soya beans
- vanilla pod (not needed if you intend to cook/make tofu with
- 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
- dash of raw sugar
Liquidize beans with 2.5 pints (1.5 litres) water.
Pour mixture through a sieve lined with muslin, squeezing through
as much liquid as possible.
Add vanilla pod.
Heat liquid to boiling point, then remove vanilla pod.
Add oil and sugar or honey to taste.
Liquidize again, then strain through muslin.
Its a bit complicated, but personally I think it's worth it - especially
when the result is a slab of undoubtedly home-made tofu!
