What’s for Dinner? Mediterranean Soy Marinade

Soy para Soy! Translation, I am for soy! Are you?

Tonight’s dinner is a family favorite. Chicken and rice. But, tonight I’m kicking it up a notch in flavor and health! I have marinaded the thinly cut chicken breast in an oil-based marinade, using Soybean Oil!

The marinade ingredients!


Prep time: 
Total time: 
  • ½ cup Soybean Oil
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • ¼ tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 6 springs of fresh rosemary, cut 2-inches long
  • ½ cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  1. Put all ingredients in a food processor.
  2. Pulse for 30 seconds.
  3. Pour on top of protein (chicken, fish or tofu) and let the marinade soak.
  4. Cook protein to your liking.

This recipe originated in The Joy of Soy, published by the United Soybean Board.

Benefits of Soybean

According to the US FDA, soy protein, like what’s found in oils containing soy may…

  • decrease the risk of heart disease
  • reduce breast cancer risk by as much as 50%
  • decrease chances of developing prostate cancer
  • reduce frequency & severity of hot flashes during menopause

Plus, it’s a great source of vitamin E to prevent cell damage!

Our dinner tonight…delicious!

Ok, I think your convinced of the benefits of soy. I am!

    i tried soy recently. I love the Soy Berry Pancakes, but i had a hard time with the blueberries in the batter. I would reccommend just putting them (by hand) in the pan, before the first is the recipe:

    1 1/2 cup White whole-wheat flour
    1/2 cup Oatmeal, quick cooking
    2 tablespoons Baking powder
    1 1/2 cup Vanilla or plain soymilk
    4 Eggs
    2 tablespoons Brown sugar, packed
    2 tablespoons Soybean oil (often labeled “vegetable oil”)
    4 cups Fresh blueberries, divided
    Maple syrup (optional)

    This looks delicious! I have a house of picky eaters, and the moment I mention anything with soy they run the other way. But I’m going to try this recipe (and not tell them what’s in it), I think it will be a huge hit with them!
