Okara Hummus

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Veggie Girl NYC

Since buying a Soy Toy soymilk maker about a year and a half ago, I have been an avid user of recipes that include okara, which is the by-product that is leftover from the soymilk making process. This recipe comes from the cookbook that was included with the Soy Toy. It's a delicious--and nutritious!--way to include more soy in your diet.

Nice and easy recipe~ better than store bought. Used fresh instead of canned chick peas. Initially I followed the recipe as written (minus the pepper since DH is allergic). The taste was somewhat bland so I doubled the garlic and tahini and added more lemon juice (about 1/4 c. total). End result was very tasty, nice consistency. Thanks for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the garlic cloves in olive oil until golden brown. (This eliminates the garlic "kick" that a lot of people find offensive, and the flavor of roasted garlic adds a warm taste to the hummus.).
  2. Add the chickpeas to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Add all of the other ingredients. Adjust the seasonings to taste.
  4. Serve with raw vegetable crudites, crackers, or toasted pita points.
