Freshly invented, this is the Japanese tres leches. Momo, the peach. Mitsu-nyu, 3 milks. It is vegan, gluten free, and oishii !

More about “tres leches” cake and basic recipe.

This is okara, the fiber left after you squeeze out soy milk. I often make cakes with it.

I’ve made a very simple vanilla okara cake, very simple :
1 cup of okara, 2 tbs of potato starch, 2 tbs of cane sugar, 1 tbs of dry coconut, vanilla powder, enough water to get a sticky dough. Baked on low heat in 2 round molds.

Next day, I’ve soaked the dried cooled cakes.
Syrup : coconut milk + coconut cream + 1 small chunk of kurozako black sugar.
I consider soy creaminess from the okara makes the 3rd milk.

That’s the texture you obtain.

A few hours later, I’ve piled the 2 rounds and garnished.
Cream : coconut cream, powder sugar and green kinako (a grilled soy powder). I’ve completed with slices of peach.

A healthy quick lunch. Veggies, fibers and super healing spice turmeric. In addition, it’s delicious.

The main ingredient is okara, the fiber left when you make soy milk. Here we can buy it in any supermarket, but I had some home-made. (DIY soy milk and okara).

Okara carrot cupcakes

Are not my little cakes cute ? Hey, I have to eat vegetables…
They are healthy carrot cakes.

I was usually using egg to make ok’cake (made with okara tofu fiber, click here for more). Not this time, so they are egg free and vegan, if that matters.

Very simple, just mix : 1 cup of steamed finely grated carrot, 1 cup of okara. 2 tbs of coconut cream. 1/2 cup of juice carrot with a little water. 2 tbs of potato starch for binding. Kurozato black sugar, cake spices. Then into 4 cup cake molds. I shaped the bulk as they don’t grow bigger when they cook. They even slightly shrink.

The baked cakes. I took them out of molds after 20 minutes and continued 20 minutes after putting them upside down, so they dried better. Then I poured a little lemon juice on top and let cool.

The icing is coconut cream (from a can) with vanilla powder and a little sugar.

Creamy ginger okara patties

Pan-fried patties that are very creamy inside but that’s not cream at all.

When I made tofu, I had squeezed ground tofu beans in a cloth and inside I had those grounds called okara :

Mixed with a little potato starch (that serves as a binder), a little miso, grated carrot, minced onion, a few sesame seeds.

I added minced pickled ginger,like the one serve with sushi. And used some more as a topping. You never have too much ginger to fight those Winter viruses and colds.
