Milanesa de soja is a common vegetarian/vegan dish in Argentina. Milanesa is originally made with beef, I made it once and it was great! Since I have a package of soy bean flour sitting in the pantry for a long time, I want to try making milanesa de soja.
- 1.5 cup water
- 190g soy bean flour
- 40g wheat bran
- 50g wheat germ
- 100g vital gluten
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 tbsp yeast
- 1.5 cup panko or breadcrumb
- 1-2 tbsp dry basil
the large bowl is soy bean flour, it’s slightly yellow.
put everything in breadmaker and choose dough setting
After an hour
prepare the table with plastic film
roll the dough
cut the cakes
prepare a mix of panko, S+P and dry basil. Take each piece (slightly wet) and pat gently to the panko mix
Bake 20 min at 375F, turning it once
served with tomato sauce, steamed corn and sauteed kale, shiitake and onion with coconut oil and soy sauce
or with avocado
I think I like it even more than the original milanesa de carne.
Q: What’s your take on soy controversy? How often do you consumer soy products? Personally I don’t believe that soy is bad for us. What is bad is the highly proceed soy products, as any other highly proceed food. Soy is a big part of asian diet, we consume a lot of soy derived products, mostly in form of soy milk, tofu and soy beans. I consume at least 2-3 times a week some kind of soy products.
