Quick soy cookery
Now that you know the lay of the soy landscape, how about putting all this knowledge to work? Read on for some quick and easy ways to make magic in your kitchen with our little green buddy.

Banana Soy Oatmeal
Increase the nutritional octane in your morning bowl of mush by substituting soy milk for your daily dairy.

What you'll need:  

A heavy saucepan
1 cup soy milk
1/2 cup oatmeal (not the "quick cooking" variety)
1 banana
Brown sugar

  1. Pour the soy milk in a heavy saucepan and sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon and salt.
  2. Heat the soy milk over a medium-high flame. When it begins to boil, stir in the oatmeal and set your timer for 5 minutes. Adjust heat if the oatmeal threatens to boil over.
  3. As the oatmeal boils, add the banana, sliced. Stir occasionally until the 5 minutes are up.
  4. Pour oatmeal into a serving bowl. Add brown sugar to taste. (Remember that the bananas already add sweetness. Even as little as 1/2 teaspoon of sugar can be enough.)
