  • ½ cup organic yellow soybeans
  • cups water plus more for blending
  • ½ teaspoon raw sugar optional
  • 1 vanilla bean optional
  • 1 pinch sea salt optional


  • Soak the yellow soybeans for 24 to 36 hours in a generous amount of water. Strain, rinse, and change the water about half-way through this soaking period (or every 12 hours if soaking longer). Strain and rinse the soybeans before using.
  • In a food processor add the soaked soybeans and ½ a cup of water. Puree the beans and water at the highest setting (liquefy and/or turbo) for 90 seconds. Move the raw soy pulp into the cooker.
  • Add 5 cups of water and mix everything together well – ensure that the contents of the cooker do not exceed more than half the pot capacity.
  • Bring the uncovered cooker to a boil stirring occasionally. You will know the soy is boiling when the foam increases in volume quickly.
  • Remove the foam from the top and discard, then wipe down the sides of the pot with a spatula and give the contents one last stir. Close the lid and set the valve to the pressure position.
  • Pressure cook on HIGH for 9 minutes if using an electric unit, or 7 minutes if using a stovetop unit.
  • In the meantime, in a wide-mouth pitcher or bowl, add the sugar, vanilla bean, and salt (if using) and place a fine-mesh strainer on top.
  • When time is up, open the pressure cooker using the natural release method.
  • Carefully pour the hot contents of the cooker through the fine-mesh strainer into the pitcher, pushing down on the pulp with the spatula to wring out any remaining milk from the pulp.
  • Mix the contents in the pitcher well and let cool and then remove and rinse off the vanilla bean to use for your next batch.
  • Cover tightly and refrigerate – keeps for 3-4 days in the refrigerator. Shake, or mix, before using.
