Preheat oven to 350 ℉. Place soybeans in a colander and rinse them under cold water. Transfer the rinsed soybeans onto paper towel and pat dry briefly.
Place the soybeans onto a baking sheet. Add 1 teaspoon of oil and mix with soybeans. Let the soybeans get coated evenly. Roast in oven on the middle rack for 20 minutes until the soybeans are golden brown.
Remove the baking sheet from oven and let the soybeans cool at room temperature for 5 minutes.
Food Processor Method: Transfer the roasted soybeans into a food processor and briefly chop them to break the soybeans into smaller pieces. Transfer the soybeans into a container and add water. Let it stand at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. Transfer the mixture back into the food processor and add the remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth.
High-Speed Blender Method: transfer the roasted soybeans and the remaining ingredients into the blender. Blend until smooth.
