Okara Pasta Sauce

Tuesday, August 08, 2017

Since I have been experimenting with making my own tofu (read more about that here) I have been left with bunch of okara (which is the by product in the making of tofu) that I don't feel great about throwing away. so I have been playing around with different ways to use it. Okara is very dry  by having all the soy milk squeezed out of it. So I have been searching for more hydrating ways of cooking with it, Hence Pasta Sauce! 
I found that Okara soaks up any flavors you cook with it, and creates a appealing creaminess when you add liquid to it. 

I started off with sautéed onions and garlic added two cups of Okara and enough water to make it creamy. I added Zucchini for crunchiness and seasoning and let it cook. 
I had to keep adding little bits of water to keep it at the consistency I wanted. when it tasted good to me I mixed in my pasta and served! 

I think it came out great! I love creamy pasta and the Okara lended it self so well to becoming a sauce and was quite filling by being a bean product. 

Whatv do you think? Ever cook with Okara? what are your favorite okara recipes?
