Makes approximately 1 1/4 cups
A crunchy snack, high in protein.
• 1 cup soybeans
• 4 cups water
Soak soybeans overnight in water. In the morning, strain and reserve the liquid for breads, soups, and so forth. Place drained beans in shallow baking pans and bake, stirring frequently, at 300º F for 75 to 90 minutes or until golden in color and crunchy. When done, and still hot, sprinkle soy sauce over the beans and stir until the sauce coats them and dries up. Cool before storing. A good idea is to grind some up, somewhat coarsely, and save them to sprinkle over soups, stews, or salads.
Variation: Soak in salted water (1 teaspoon salt to one quart water) and omit soy sauce.
