Where to buy fresh soybeans/okara in L.A.?
Happy New Year!
Does anyone know where I can find fresh white soybeans to make Okara, or where I can buy Okara?
I've found dried Okara at the Mitsuwa market, but don't know the "exchange" ratio between fresh and dried for the muffin/cookie recipes I've found.
Any help is really appreciated!
Happy new Year, SK.
Try the Marukai Market, Pacific Square in Gardena (do not need to be a "member" at this location). They had a fresh bag of it for a couple of dollars, in the tofu deli area. There is also Meiji Tofu on Western in Gardena - they make "fresh tofu" and I'm sure they also have it.
I never tried Okara in anything baked before. My grandmother would just heat it with some sliced green beans and cooked bacon or pork pieces.
Hope this info helped.
