Soya bean is a great source of protein. It can be consumed in various ways. This is my method of using soya bean in a sauce. Soya bean and tomato sauce is a very tasty sauce which goes with almost everything. I personally like to use it as a dip for dumplings.

Soya Bean and Tomato Sauce

  • Half a can of tomato (You may also use 2-3 fresh tomatoes, finely chopped)
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • Small piece of ginger, crushed
  • Handful of soya bean
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Chilli powder to taste
Preparing Soya Bean Powder:
  • Heat sauce pan on medium-high.
  • Put a handful of soya bean and heat it stirring regularly until it gets brown.

  • You can also make large amount of soya bean powder and store it in an air-tight container for future use.
Final Preparation :
  • Heat oil in a saucepan in a medium heat.
  • Add garlic and ginger and fry until golden.
  • Add canned tomatoes and cook until the tomatoes are soft. If you are using fresh tomatoes, this process might take a little longer.
  • Turn off the heat. Add soya bean powder, salt and chilli and mix well. If you like the sauce a bit thinner, you can add some water to the mixture.

    A combination totally unexpected but I bet it makes the sauce yummier and full of healthy protein.
