Soft and Chewy Okara Pon De Queijo

This recipe is delicious, simple, and healthy!! It is non-sugar so you can use it as a dieters' breakfast, or as a snack for the kids. Even my kids who hate okara eat this up. If you drink water with this, then it will fill you up right away!

Ingredients: 12-13

Fresh okara
100 g
70 g
Grated cheese
30 g
a pinch
70-100ml (please adjust according to the water content of the okara)
Vegetable oil (they're even more delicious with garlic oil ☆)
1/2 tablespoon


1. Place the okara, katakuriko, powdered cheese, and salt into a bag, and shake well. Preheat the oven.
2. Add in the vegetable oil and milk, and knead. When the the dough is smooth and a bit soft it's ready.
3. Once it has been mixed well, roll it up into bite-sized pieces and bake in the oven at 190℃ for about 17-20 minutes. Eat them freshly baked.
4. These also taste great fried golden brown in oil.
5. These have been mixed shredded cheese, Krazy salt, black pepper, and parsley, and had a bite sized piece of wiener rolled up into them. Dip in ketchup and enjoy. It's great for a snack while drinking, or for breakfast.
6. This is what it looks like on the inside.

Story Behind this Recipe

Okara is really similar in taste and texture to mashed potatoes. I have also tried making potato mochi with okara, frying in oil, eating with dressing. But I wanted to cut calories even more! So I baked these in the oven, and they turned out chewy and delicious! I added cheese to these and turned them into Pão de Queijo.
