At first when I started making my own homemade soymilk, I would throw away the pulp, not knowing that I could make other great dishes with it. Now I make lots of different dishes with it, savoury and sweet.
Using it to make waffles is one of my favourite, because my kids and I love waffles.
What’s okara (Soya pulp, in case you might be wondering! Okara is the leftover after making homemade soymilk.
I always prefer boiling my soymilk together with the okara, then separate. In this way okara is well cooked.
- 2 cups cooked okara (soya pulp)
- 1 cup rice flour
- 1/2 cup of coconut powder
- 3 tbsp of honey or maple syrup
- 1/3 tsp of salt.
- 1 cup of water or soymilk
Plug in your waffle iron to heat.
In a mixing boil, combine all ingredients together, starting with the liquid ones. Mix everything very well.
Slightly coat the waffles iron with olive oil using a heatproof brush. Put enough batter to cover the griddle, cover with lid quickly. Do not open until the waffle is cooked. Cook according to manufacturer’s instructions to a desired crispness.
When waffles are done, transfer to a clean container and repeat the process with the remaining batter.
Okara waffles cook a bit longer than the usual.
