Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 cups (150 g) dried yellow soybeans (preferably organic)

Preparation

Note from Ricardo

There’s a recipe within this recipe: Follow the first three steps and you’ll have your own soy beverage! It’s a great stand-in for the grocery-store variety, but since it’s preservative-free, be sure to drink it within a few days.

Find Epsom salts in natural food stores.
