“I made this up one day while reading several cookbooks, taking some of this and some of that and a bit of trial and error. I was trying to come up with a way to get my family to eat soybeans without thinking of it as another one of my "weird health food" dishes. My family loves it.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak soybeans overnight in at least six cups of water.
  2. Cook soybeans in new water until tender.
  3. Thaw spinach in a bowl in the microwave.
  4. Saute onion (You could add one green pepper if you like.) Mix soybeans, crumbled bacon bits, onions and spinach together and spread in a large casserole dish.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix crumbled feta cheese, cottage cheese, and one egg.
  6. Spread cheese mixture over soybeans.
  7. Bake in 350 degree F oven 45 minutes until topping is brown and casserole is heated through.
  8. Variations: Use fresh spinach or broccoli or frozen broccoli.
  9. Note: You may need two eggs for binding the cheese to soybeans if feta is particularly dry.
  10. Sometimes I dust the top with a bit of paprika for color not for taste.
  11. You can use more or less bacon.
  12. It is just a teaser to get them to try it.
  13. I've made it without the bacon for a vegetarian friend of mine and she loved it.
