For soymilk you soak the beans and then crack them in grinder on coarsest setting . Simmer them for 1 hour or so in water and strain , the leftover bean is called okara and is used easily as a filler in many dishes.
Soy milk is made into tofu the same way cheese is made , except the curdling is done with nigari - a seaweed product . Do not be afraid , it's only a bean. TVP is an industrial process though. Miso , soy sauce are all done at home too.

A quick google gave many sources for heirloom, open pollinated, organic seed, so the GMO concern isn't valid.
Am I missing something? (My normal state..... )
