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
