Homemade Soy Milk

Soybeans are a lovely, protein rich food that have been a part of Asian traditions for thousands of years.

Today, soybeans are overused by the processed food industry, which uses them as a basis for countless food additives.

It is best to enjoy soy in its most traditional forms: as homemade soymilk, tofu, tempeh, and as miso paste for soups.

In the United States, most soybeans are genetically modified. To avoid eating genetically modified soybeans, choose organic soybeans to prepare your homemade soy products.

Hope you enjoy this simple & delicious recipe.

Step 1: Wash organic soybeans and soak them in water overnight

Step 2: The next morning, drain the beans and add them to your blender with fresh water (ratio of 1 part bean to 2 parts water). Pour entire mixture into a pot and bring to a boil, then simmer for 20 minutes.
