Soy beans have a high protein content and can be made into many dishes including tofu, miso, tempeh, soy sauce and soy milk.


Preparation and Cooking

Keeps best refrigerated or frozen. Before you cook dry soybeans, sort them and remove any rocks or debris. Add four cups of warm water and two teaspoons of baking soda to each cup of dry beans. One cup of dry beans will yield about two and one-half cups of cooked beans. Soak for four hours. After the beans have soaked, bring them to a boil in the soaking water and simmer for 20 minutes. Then, drain the beans and rinse them in fresh water. Rub the beans between your fingers and most of the husks will float to the top of the water and can be rinsed away. Cover the beans completely with boiling water while they’re cooking if it’s needed. Add one to two teaspoons of oil to reduce foaming. Add one teaspoon of sugar, salt and pepper to taste. Simmer the beans for one and a half to two hours or until they’re tender.


Soy Beans. Allergens: Manufactured in a facility that also uses tree nuts, soy, wheat and milk.
