okara hummus •

When the darlings get home from school, they are STARVED! They remind me of this fact every day like it is something new. If I have my act together (sometimes it happens...) I will throw together this hummus. They gobble it up with okara thin bread or pita bread and lots of raw veggies. If they can’t eat much dinner, who cares? They have gotten plenty of nutrition from this snack.

Okara Hummus •

In your blender, puree the following:

1 cup wet okara (this is referring to the okara straight from your machine)
1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans (do not drain)
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons tahini
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/8 teaspoon salt

extra-virgin olive oil

Transfer to a covered container. Refrigerate hummus for a few hours for the best flavor. Right before serving, warm hummus and sprinkle with olive oil and paprika. Serve with pita bread or okara thin bread, and raw vegetables for dipping.

I'm so glad I found your site! Please keep it going! Since I make about 2 gallons of soymilk a week, I need all the okara help I can get!

Ever think of experimenting with making okara tempeh?

Thank you Greg! Great idea about the tempeh...maybe I will give it a try sometime, though it isn't something I eat much.
