The fact that soy is a vegetable substitute for meat is no secret to anyone. In terms of the amount of protein, all legumes, in principle, are not inferior to chicken, pork, veal or eggs. However, few people have a clear idea of ​​what can be prepared from soybeans.


Try to cook soy curry - a popular Indian dish , where the taste of beans is perfectly complemented by Asian spices and herbs.

  • Soybeans - 300 g.

  • Onions - 1 pc.

  • Ginger root - a small piece.

  • Tomatoes in their own juice - 400 g.

  • Curry powder - 1 tsp.

  • Salt - to taste.

  • Chili pepper - 1 pc.

  • Vegetable oil - 3 tbsp.

  • Garlic - 5 cloves.

  • Water or broth - 1 cup.

Pour soybeans into a saucepan and pour cold boiled water. Add a teaspoon of salt and leave to soak for 12 hours. Then drain the water and pour clean water. Put the pan on a low heat and cook for one and a half to two hours, until the beans become soft. Due to the fact that the beans have softened with salt, they will boil easily.

Peel the onion, garlic and ginger root. Finely chop everything and fry in a deep pan in vegetable oil for 3-4 minutes. Add curry powder and crushed chili pepper. Pepper can be taken both fresh and dry. If you don't like it very spicy, use a little pepper. Mix thoroughly and fry everything together for 2 minutes. Add chopped tomatoes along with juice, bring to a boil, salt to taste. Put the boiled beans in the pan, add a glass of water or broth and cook the curry for 10-15 minutes on medium heat under the lid. Some of the beans in the curry can be crushed to get a thicker consistency of the dish . Serve with boiled rice.




There is a legend that the recipe for tofu was discovered by accident, when sea water got into a dish of ground soybeans, which caused them to form. Whether this is true or not, no one knows for sure. It is only known that this tofu is an excellent vegetable substitute for cheese made from animal milk.

Tofu can be added to soups and salads, as well as prepared from it as snacks and main dishes .

Prepare fried tofu: this dish will be a great appetizer for beer or a light snack.

  • Tofu

  • Breadcrumbs.

  • Favorite herbs and spices.

  • Vegetable oil.

Squeeze excess moisture from tofu, cut into pieces. Mix breadcrumbs with herbs and spices. Roll pieces of tofu in breadcrumbs. Heat the pan, pour vegetable oil and fry the cheese until golden on both sides.



Daikon (in fact, it is an ordinary radish) is the most popular vegetable in Japan. The Japanese have been growing radishes for over a thousand years and include them in their diet as often as we do, for example, potatoes. And it is not surprising: the balance of nutrients in daikon is so perfect that it is just perfect for a healthy diet.

Try to make a light salad from daikon, which will be both a snack and a great addition to the main course .

  • Daikon.

  • Carrots.

  • Salt pepper.

  • Vegetable oil.

  • Lemon juice or vinegar.

  • Onion (optional).

Wash, clean and cut the vegetables into thin strips using a vegetable peeler. If you don't have a vegetable peeler, you can grate it on a coarse grater. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, mix. Add vinegar and lemon juice and pour vegetable oil.


Coconut milk

Coconut milk should be distinguished from coconut water or, as it is also called, coconut juice. Water or juice is the liquid inside the coconut. It is completely natural and, accordingly, very useful. But unlike juice-water, coconut milk is obtained artificially by mixing shredded coconut pulp and water.

Milk is usually varied in terms of thickness (the thickest is called coconut cream). More thick ones are usually used for preparing desserts and fatty sauces, less thick ones are used for soups and other dishes .

Prepare a spicy Thai soup with vegetables based on coconut milk.

  • Carrot - 2 pcs.

  • Onion - 1 pc.

  • Sweet pepper - 2 pcs.

  • Beijing cabbage - ½ pc.

  • Celery - 2-3 stalks.

  • Coconut milk - 1 can.

  • Garlic - 2 cloves.

  • Thin rice noodles.

  • Chili pepper - to taste.

  • Cilantro - several sprigs.

  • Salt or soy sauce - to taste.

  • Lime - for serving.

Carrots and onions are cleaned, finely chopped and fried in a pan until soft. Add sliced ​​sweet pepper, chili, celery and Chinese cabbage. Fry, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Pour in a liter of water, add coconut milk and rice noodles. Add salt or soy sauce to taste, mix and bring to a boil. Garnish with cilantro when serving. Serve with a slice of lime.



Seitan sausage (PREMIUM)

Seitan is something made from wheat flour. In appearance, it is very similar to meat, after all, in terms of protein content and consistency, it is also in no way inferior to it. Seitan can be used in any meat dishes instead of meat, in this sense seitan is similar to some soy products - soy meat or tofu. Seitan can be fried, boiled, marinated, canned and frozen - in general, everything that is done with meat.

Seitan can be produced both industrially and at home, its raw material is a spongy mass consisting mainly of wheat gluten and water. Seitan makes great vegan sausages and sausage. We advise you not to cook anything from the sausage, but simply cut it into pieces, put it on bread and remember our childhood, when we ate canapés with medicinal sausage.
