How To Make Homemade Soymilk

A few weeks ago, we had our family friend Tam over for tea time. I raved about the fresh soymilk that we buy locally from a small shop in San Jose. Tam insisted we should make our own, and I have ever since.

The ingredient list is easy: a few soaked soy beans, filtered water and the sweetener of your choice. I've perfected the recipe since I prepare it almost daily. I flavor the soymilk with a bit of vanilla, nutmeg, mung beans and raw peanuts for extra richness. It's much healthier than the one you find at the store. All you need is a high-powered blender, a fine-mesh strainer and 30 minutes for the soy beans to cook. It's that easy to make your own soymilk!

How To Make Soymilk

Once in a while, I get into these "I-want-to-eat-freshly-made-food" moods. I've baked my own croissants and Vietnamese baguettes for my upcoming cookbook, "Banh Mi: 75 Authentic and Delicious Vietnamese Sandwich Recipes", which by the way is already available for pre-order. In the past few months, I've also made pasta, ravioli, wonton dough and of course there's my usual ritual of making fruit preserves.

I realized I haven't made soymilk at home in a long time. This weekend, I got the girls involved and we made our own. The process is ultra easy even though it's labor intensive. But the result is well worth it. The amber color is slightly darker than the one you get at the store and the velvety, almost buttery texture is very satisfying. We made many gallons of freshly made soymilk and used much of it in other dishes. I'll share those recipes soon.
