Appliance & Recipe Recommendation: Soy Quick, Bryanna Clark Grogan's Homemade Soymilk Recipe

We recently discovered a company selling the Soy Quick soymilk maker in the UK - at a discount. Plus 1/2 kilo of organic soybeans and a tofu press thrown in for free. Having had a bad experience with the SoyToy a few years ago, I was sure to read up; Bryanna Clark Grogan says she uses a SoyQuick, and that sealed the deal for me.

Using Bryanna Clark Grogan's detailed recipe for homemade soymilk using the SoyQuick makes perfect soymilk. I prefer the soybean+rice combination, and so does my husband. He is very picky about soymilks, and his Gold Standard test procedure these days is How Does It Taste In My Morning Cuppa? Apparently, rather good (also, the bloke who comes and waves a chainsaw at our hedges, who is not vegetarian, said it made a really nice brew [cup of tea]).

This is seriously the best thing I have tasted in a long time. My mom made it last night.
It's basically just:
2 zucchinis, chopped
1 can of whole tomatos (you could probably use fresh ones if you preferred)
several cloves of fresh garlic, chopped
About a half of an onion, chopped
Whatever spices you want
And then you just cook it over the stove

Last night, I had a second helping of it, over some spaghetti, which was good. Today, I put it over some rice, which was better. It's also good by itself though. My mom said it's an Italian dish, and it has an actual name, but she couldn't remember what it was. Anyway, my parents both really liked this dish, and they're both omnis, so it would be good if you needed a dish to make for an omni.
