I’ve been looking into using less processed soy foods in my diet. I enjoy tempeh which are cakes of fermented whole soy beans. I also like edamame which are green, fresh soy beans before they have dried. Very similar to fresh lima beans out of the pod.
I also liked black soy beans, which you can find via Google or Amazon. It can be pricey, but it is grown specifically for human consumption and has a nice taste.
I last tried….and hated beige soy beans when I was 14. I was just a young punk new vegetarian back then and just learning to cook. Since I am now a handsome, worldly and sophisticated vegan I thought I would try them again.
I bought some beige organic ( to avoid GMO ) dried soy beans from a local co-op for a whopping 74 cents a pound. I soaked them for a day and tossed the stock. I also boiled the beans for 1 min, twice, changing the water each time to make them less gassy. I then pressure cooked them for 20 minutes.
They came out with an appearance, texture, and taste similar to cooked navy beans. No digestion issues either. They were wonderful and cheap. Tons of protein and calcium.
This made me think and looking back I think I may have undercooked the soy beans when I was 14, which would explain the horrible taste.
In any event, I am psyched about having a new high protein, calcium laden, whole food that is very cheap and very available.
