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!
- 1 cup okara
- 1 lb canned chick-peas (about 1 1/2 cups)
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil (more if you like a thinner hummus)
- 1 tablespoon tahini
- salt and pepper
Directions See How It's Made
- 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.).
- Add the chickpeas to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
- Add all of the other ingredients. Adjust the seasonings to taste.
- Serve with raw vegetable crudites, crackers, or toasted pita points.
