Some people can't have milk, not only because of a vegan diet, but
because of the lactose that they can not digest.
There you are a good milk for them, and for vegan, and for babies
- 1 cup of soybeans. (about 250 grams)
- 1 litter of water.
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 1 little very little of salt.
- 1 tablespoon of soy oil. (generally the bottle of vegetable oil that
you can find in supermarket contains 98% of soy oil, that is good
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
Things you will need:
- A big bowl.
- A pan (to cook the milk)
- A blending machine
How to make it:
1.- Put the soybeans with water in a bowl for 12 hours at least. You can leave them all the night.
2.- At next day: wash the soybeans with fresh water and remove the
peel. That will make the milk more white. If you don't remove it the
milk will be a little dark, but that is not a bad thing.
3.- Put in the blending machine the half of soybeans with 2 glasses
of fresh water so as to make them be like a paste. Put it all into a
pan and add the rest of the soybeans, same thing.
4.- When all the paste is done, put it to cook. Be careful because
it tends to grow exactly as the common milk does. I'd rather use a big pan. It will boil for about 30 minutes.
5.- Use a muslin to strain the milk into a bowl. What you get in the
muslin is called OKARA, don't trash it!!... you will use it later.
6.- The milk should be less than a liter now, so add water enough
to get about 1,8 liters. Separate a cup of that milk and put it in
the blending machine and add a teaspoon of sugar, the salt, soy oil
and vanilla. Blend it for a minute. The rest of the milk goes to
the pan to boil again. When it start boiling, add the cup from the
blending machine. This is for the taste.
7.- After 5 minutes boiling, you can use it as you like: hot with
chocolate or coffee, or cold with bananas, or use it for deserts,
same than the other milk, or you can prepare tofu too.
8.- What to do with the OKARA? ... you can mix it with garlic,
ciboulette, salt and spices, to use with salted cookies or bread,
for a sandwich, or use on salads. Also you can add okara to your
favourite soup, or burgers. Its very nutritous. I use them with
eggplangs, like a paste too. Really good!!
