Cooking with Soy Beans
As with most other legumes, soy beans are best rinsed and soaked first overnight in the fridge before cooking. To cook, place in a saucepan and cover with water so the beans are submerged under about 5cm of water. Bring to the boil for a few minutes then reduce to a simmer for about 2 hours. While cooking, skim the foam off occasionally and remove the outer hulls of the beans that come off and float in the water. When cooked, they will be soft but will hold their shape. Try tossing through salads, blending into a protein dense dip or spread or just eat as a snack with a sprinkle of spice.
