Make your own decaffeinated coffee-style beverage, it is easy and has a rich and creamy flavor! Drink it with soy milk and a sweetener of your choice. This faux-coffee is ideal also for mocha desserts when you don't want to add any caffeine for the sake of young children or your own health. Toasted soybeans give this drink a creamy rich, full-bodied flavor that is very pleasant.
3 cups soy beans (dry, not the frozen kind)
Spread on a cookie sheet and toast at 400º F about 1 and a half hours (checking it often so that it won't burn) until it is a rich golden brown.
Spring out of the oven, let cool.
Once it is cool, pulverize it in a blender or food processor.
The way you prepare the actual drink is as follows:
In a tea kettle boil some water (you'll need about 1/2 cup per mug of "coffee"), once the water boils, serve 2 tsp. "coffee" into each mug, and cover with about 1/2 cup of boiling water. Let it sit for a couple of minutes while the water "extracts" the flavor of the beverage. Strain through a paper coffee filter. Pour into the mug again and add soy milk and sweetener to taste.
That's all there is to it! Enjoy!
