How to Make Soy Milk and Crispy Fried Onions

It’s not that I’d run out of ideas for recipes, but the fact was simply that I needed to stock up on soy milk and crispy fried onions, and I hadn’t covered these recipes on Twitch previously, so I thought I might as well kill two birds with one stone (sorry again, vegans; I’m too tired to think of a cruelty-free idiom).

Soy Milk


  • 120g soy beans, soaked overnight
  • 2-4 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 slices ginger
  • 1L water
  • Muslin bag or similar


  1. Place soaked soy beans in jug; add half the water and blend for 30 seconds at Speed 10.
  2. Strain out the liquid and set aside.
  3. Add remaining water and repeat.
  4. Discard crushed soy beans and rinse jug.
  5. Transfer the raw soy milk back into the jug. Add sugar and ginger slices, then cook at 90°C for 12 minutes.
  6. Strain through muslin bag (I used a double layer) before serving.
  7. Soy drink can be served hot or cold, and will keep in refrigerator for about 5 days.

 Crispy Fried Onions


  • 6 large brown onions, peeled
  • 1L cooking oil

*You’ll need – mandolin (thin setting), wok, wooden spoon, sieve, paper towels, large bowl or tray


  1. Heat oil in wok to 200°C.
  2. Slice onions thinly using mandolin.
  3. Add onion slices in smallish batches into oil. Be careful with oil as it will bubble up due to moisture content in onion.
  4. Fry until at least couple of shades before the final desired result; remove with sieve and scatter on paper towel-lined tray.
  5. Allow to cool completely before storing.
