    Using Soy in 1940’s people did not like the taste so were told to use it sparingly, and made recipes to try to make it more appetizing. Soy is high in fat. They recommended creaming it or beating into a liquid and never sifting it, soy flour did make things last longer. 17 percent of the population is allergic to soy, quite a large percentage. We don’t use it, but for those who can…

    Fluffy Soy Ring

    1 egg beaten

    ½ soy flour

    1 ¼ cups milk

    2 tablespoons margarine

    1 2/3 cup wheat flour

    3 tablespoons sugar

    1 ½ teaspoons of salt

    1 tablespoon of baking powder

    Beat together Egg, Soy flour and milk

    Add melted margarine.

    Sift together Wheat flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Then add soy mixture to this. Mix only until it is incorporated. Fill a well greased ring mold 2/3 full. Bake at 425  for 25 minutes.


    Curries Shrimp

    2 cups of cooked or canned shrimp

    2 cups boiling water

    3 chicken bouillon cubes

    1 tablespoon curry powder

    ½ teaspoon salt

    Pepper to taste

    2 tablespoon flour

    2 tablespoon of margarine

    Saute chopped onions in margarine until soft and yellow

    Remove from stove and carefully blend in flour and curry powder, and add salt, pepper and bouillon cubes which have been melted in boiling water

    Stir constantly and cook over a low heat until smooth and slightly thickened.

    Remove the black vein from the shrimp and add them to the sauce. Pour into the center of a fluffy soy ring, garnish with tomato and water cress and serve at once.

    Wish I could have soy. I have an underactive thyroid and you cannot have soy because of it. I have to take synthroid for the rest of my life.
