Easy Crunchy Okara Crackers

Easy Crunchy Okara Crackers

These are savory version of my okara cookies. They are oil and sugar-free, and healthy. You can make them easily in the microwave and they are packed with fiber.


Fresh okara
100 g
Plain flour
50 g
Seasonings of your choice
as much as you like


1. Measure 100 g of okara in a plastic bag. Microwave for about 2 minutes without closing the plastic bag to evaporate the excess moisture.
2. Shake the okara in the plastic bag to break up any lumps. Be careful as it's hot. Let it cool a little with the plastic bag open to evaporate the remaining moisture.
3. Add seasonings of your choice (grated cheese, sesame seeds, salt, soup stock granules, etc.), and shake to mix. Adjust the amounts of the seasonings to taste.
4. Add 50 g of plain flour into the plastic bag, and shake well to evenly mix the ingredients.
5. Press hard over the plastic bag to form the mixture into a dough. Use a rolling pin over the plastic bag to thinly roll the dough out.
6. Cut into desired sizes, and place them on a piece of parchment paper (note: if you cut them too big, they won't cook evenly).
7. Microwave for about 4 minutes. Flip them over and microwave for 3-4 minutes. After flipping them over once, check the crackers from time to time while you are microwaving them since they may burn if you overheat them.
8. I added 1 tablespoon of grated cheese and 1/2 teaspoon of soup stock granules. I cut the dough into triangles.
9. I added 2 tablespoons of small shrimp furikake and 1/2 teaspoon of dashi soup stock granules (bonito). I cut the dough into sticks.
10. I added 2 tablespoons of white sesame seeds and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. I cut the dough into squares.
11. These are nori and salt flavor.
