    Default Soy Beans

    http://www.durgan.org/ShortURL/?VJAIO 26 August 2008 Soy Bean preparation

    They are prepared in the following manner. About five cups of dried beans are washed, boiled in water for 10 minutes to remove dirt, washed again, placed in the pressure cooker for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Boiled for about 5 minute to mix with a sweetener, stefia, and some molasses for colour. The mixture is the blended and stored in liter jars. Five cups of beans make 3 to 4 liters depending upon the size of the soy beans and the amount of water added for blending. The jars are then stored in the refrigerator, and one liter is about four days supply for one person.

    Like all human food, soy beans are an addition, not a complete replacement for other foods. Another attraction is some independence from the offerings of the centralized, mega-food processing industry.

    Soy beans are eaten every day for breakfast, along with a bowl of rolled oats.Very simple, low cost and nourishing. As prepared, I find the beans easy to digest, and they supply a major portion of my food requirements each day. I have been eating soy beans for many years.

    You wont see this on a TV cooking show. Eat to live-not live to eat.

    I roast my soy beans and eat them as a snack or in my granola.

    I have used the roasting method, but one soon gets tired of the roughness of the product, and the amount digested may be rather doubtful.

    Natto, another method of preparation, is a bit hard to take, and is time consuming to produce. My objective was simply to get a more nourishing food, that is easy to prepare, and something one can eat daily.
