The Joy of Soy

Six easy ways to sneak soy products into your diet

continued...

Soy flour works well to replace some of the wheat flour in bread and muffin recipes. I tried it in all sorts of recipes, and sometimes people noticed the difference and sometimes they didn't. It adds a light yellow color, a slightly heavier texture, and a somewhat "yeasty" flavor. For each cup of white or whole-wheat flour called for in a recipe, replace 3 to 4 tablespoons with soy flour. So if a recipe calls for 2 cups of flour, use 1/3 to 1/2 cup of soy flour plus 1 2/3 to 1 1/2 cups of white flour. Journal baked products made with soy as you would any other baked products.

If none of these appeal, try ordering some miso soup in a Japanese restaurant (or buy it at your market to heat up at home); use tempeh in recipes as you would use tofu; sample veggie burgers or other meat-alternatives made with soy protein (check the label!); or add soy protein powder to smoothies, shakes, breakfast drinks, and cream based soups.
