Okara Breakfast SausageOkara is soybean pulp that is left over from making soy milk or tofu. It is still valuable nutritionally and loaded with complete protein. Here is a great way to use it for a breakfast food.

Makes (8) 2-inch breakfast patties.


  • 2 c okara
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 c instant potato buds
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil (plus oil for frying)
  • 1 Tbsp gluten flour
  • 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp ground fennugreek
  • 1 tsp ground fennel seed
  • 1 tsp sumac (optional)
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground sage
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp sugar


  1. In a large bowl, blend all ingredients well.
  2. Preheat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Oil it with one or two tablespoons of vegetable oil.
  3. Form 2-inch patties by hand or in a press. Place on hot pan-griddle and fry about 3 minutes. Turn and fry other side. Turn over again once or twice until patties are cooked through and well-browned.
  4. Serve hot with scrambled eggs. Freeze extra patties in a freezer container or bag between sheets of wax paper.
