Hair food: Minced soy

I'll be honest: This tastes like cardboard.
But the protein to calorie ratio is amazing and if you mix it with spices and vegetables or meat, you won't notice the cardboard taste.

I like to mix with with minced beef for meat sauce or lasagne.

But no more than 1:10 in ratio or the cardboard taste comes through anyways.

For a lasagne with 1 kg meat, I usually use 50 gram (1 dl plus a bit) of the dry soy. It swells up a lot once you add water.


100 gram minced, dry soy:

  • 265 calories
  • 64 gram protein
  • 19 gram fibre

Since protein is 4 calories per 1 gram, this is almost pure protein (64 x 4 = 256 calories)
