Soya milk is a real blessing to those who are lactose intolerant or those who want to lower cholesterol.
Soya is rich in protein and 125 grams of soya beans contain 9% of protein.
I have recorded a video tutorial showing how to make soya milk at home and then tofu.
The video tutorial is in two parts.
For a tofu slightly lighter in consistency just make up your soya milk adding more water.
250 grams of soya beans soaked for at least 12-15 hours…the more you soak the better the milk and tofu
1.5 litres of bottled water
a little vinegar as needed
Please follow both the video tutorials to see how the soya milk and tofu is made.
Soak the soya beans for 12-15 hours in a lot of water. These beans will double in size so make sure theres enough water.
Then mash them with ur hands so that all their skin loosens off and under running water remove all the skin. Its easy because the skin will float on the top and all you need to do is scoop it with your palm. Once most of the skin is off drain the beans and put into the blender little by little at a time with a bit of bottled water. You will need about 1.5 litres for this amount of beans. Make into a real smooth paste. Strain the paste in a fine colander or use a cloth over a collander and press to get all the milk out. Put the milk into a saucepan and boil for five minutes stirring all the time because it tends to burn at the bottom. This is your soya milk which you can add sugar or flavor it.
TO MAKE TOFU:
Bring the soya milk to a boil and add a few drops of white vinegar or lemon juice and boil till the milk curdles. If it doesnt curdle add a little more of vinegar till it does.
Strain onto a cloth over a colander and press out all the water carefully. Place a heavy pot full of water on it so it sets and all the water is drained out.
Please watch the video tutorial
You now have tofu which you can cut into cubes and cook, stir fry etc.
I have just pan fried it with a little oil in a frying pan and added some soya sauce on top
