Black soy bean milk, and like the pale green color

I like to use black soy bean to prepare soy bean milk drink, because black beans are a wonderful source of dietary fiber and are rich in antioxidants as well. Furthermore, I like the pale-green color..

- I can't captured the nice pale-green color using my camera.... also because it changed a bit to milk color after cooked.



-Remove the black bean skin and you will see very nice pale green beans



- Blend the beans, you will get very nice pale green soy milk

Simple recipe to share

Ingredients

  • 400g black soy bean (soaked overnight)
  • a couple of pandan leaves
  • 2.5 litres of water
  • Sugar to taste

Steps:-

1.Soak the black soy beans overnight in cold water. Drain and then rinse the beans well. Remove the black skin.

2. Place pale green bean in a blender. Add some water to cover the beans before blending them finely.

3. Pour blended bean into a large bowl or pot and add remaining water. Strain / Sieve the contents through a fine cloth.

4. Place sieved bean milk into a pot, add the pandan leaves and bring to boil very slowly. Ensure that you stir the milk regularly to prevent burning. Turn off the heat immediately upon boiling and allow to cool.

5. You can either choose to add the sugar whilst bringing the black soy bean to boil or prepare syrup (usually I will add few slices of ginger-remove wind) separately and add the syrup prior to drinking.

Black soy bean milk?! Hmmm...this is new to me.

Does it taste the same as regular soy bean milk? I'm all for it if it's healthier.

Sonia said...

Colin, it tasted exactly like soy bean milk, no difference from my point of view, furthermore it is more healthy than the normal soy milk, ask your wife to make for you ya.

If only we can find those black soy bean here...not sure if we have seen them before. Definitely sounds like a good idea...anything with good dietary fiber and antioxidant, man...I'm getting old...

Sonia said...

Dear Colin, I'm sure this is easily found in US supermarket, try to get organic one.

Sonia, adding the sugar syrup at the end and making a drink using healthy black soy beans is a wonderful idea. I love your photos of the black soy beans with the skin on and what the bean looks like without the skin. I have never tried these before.

Wow, didn't know such a bean existed, I have not seen it here. I can see the pale green color in your last picture. Cool!

Sonia said...

Rachel, Mia, Tintin, LCOM, actually I'm not really sure this black bean is come from same soy bean family or not, this one I use is those kind of normal black bean we use to cook soup with pork ribs, this can be easily found in any of "pasar pagi" or wet market.
