Nanny’s Simple Soy Milk


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • 2 cups of organic soybeans and water


Makes: a gallon, give or take.

Preparation time: 1/2 hr.-1 hr..

Rinse and soak the beans overnight (or at least 10 hours) in the fridge.
when yer ready, drain and rinse the beans…

Here’s where you can do one of two things:

either grind the beans into a paste using a grain mill and add to a
pot of 12 c. boiling water…OR… process the beans in a blender or
food processor with boiling water (3/4 c. beans to 1 3/4 c. boiling
water at a time) and pour into a big heavy pot. (Note: It is important
to not over estimate your blenders abilities. Be careful to not burn
out your blender while grinding beans. A food processor offers better
results (with sharp blade)).

bring yer soy-milky-sludgy goodie to a boil while stirring over medium
HAVE A MESS. now you can just let it simmer (no stirring necessary)
for 20-30 minutes.

Meanwhile…line a colander with a thin cloth and set it up over a big
bowl or another pot. when the soymilk is cooked, ladle it into the
colander, straining the pulp (called okara) in the cloth and allowing
the milk to collect in the bowl. make sure to squeeze all the milk you
can from the okara before transferring it into a jug or two to cool.
the last step is to taste yer creation…need more water? how’s about
a little sweetner, vanilla, carob or some sea salt?

The okara can be steamed for an hour and added to vegan breads in place of
some of the flour and liquid, and to burger-type recipes in place of
the tofu…
