Story Behind this Recipe
I made some okara stew, but I didn't know what to do with the leftover okara. After some thought, I made them into nuggets. They were surprisingly delicious. My husband loved them too.
For the seasoning, try Dashida, soup stock, chicken stock, or any other condiments of your choice. I'm sure people would mistake these nuggets as meat if they didn't know what they were made from. Okara is packed with fiber and calcium which makes this dish great for expecting mothers. If the nuggets are too crumbly, try adding some tofu for adjustment.
