Dreg roast Recipe November 14/14

two batches of soybean dregs from two sessions of making soymilk with the Soybella soy milk machine
Here is what a fresh batch of "dregs" from the soymilk machine looks like

Each session yields about 1.3 litres of soymilk from about 1/2 cup of dried soybeans
The processed "dregs" ends up to be close to 2 cups.

So rather than waste the by product- we have made a vegetarian roast

Todays roast contains the following
2 loads of soybean dregs (about 4 cups)
1/2 cup pecan meal
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1 1/2 cups steel cut oats
2 cups of rolled oats (large grain- not quick oats)
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 whole wheat hamburger bun chopped up
1 onion diced fine
1/2 cup President's Choice Citrus Marinade

2 cups water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Couple tablespoons of garlic "seeds" from my garlic scapes
1 cup zuchini relish by Gini
2 Tbsp Bulk Barn Onion soup mix
various pkgs of fast food seasonings
1 pkg soy sauce
6 pkgs plum sauce
2 pkgs ketchup
4 pkgs relish
since we already had those Hot Dog seasonings add a
Big squirt of mustard
and a big squirt of Heinz ketchup
1 cup of various fresh herbs including sage, oregano, dill chopped up in the food processor


















After cooking the roast looks like this














After tasting, - roast tastes fine.
Maybe some added texture would be good. Like maybe more sunflower seeds.
Tasted best with some gravy as it could be on the dry side.
