Soy curls are a healthy meat substitute for dishes such as stir fry, tacos, and chili, or any recipe calling for chicken. But what exactly are they, and where do I get them?
Are you familiar with soy curls?
I wasn’t until I tried them at a friend’s house.
Now I love them!
I haven’t found soy curls in any of the stores where I live, but fortunately they are available online from Amazon.
I recommend trying a bag, and if you like them, you can save a lot of money by buying a pack of six.
Butler Soy Curls are textured non-GMO soybeans.
All you need to do is rehydrate them in warm water for 10 minutes, squeeze out the water, then use in your favorite recipes.
I like to keep a few bags on hand for fast and easy meals. While they are shelf-stable, they last a lot longer if you store them in your refrigerator or freezer.
I personally like to keep mine in the freezer. When I want to use them, there’s no need to defrost them first.
And there are so many ways to use them in your favorite dishes.
Sometimes I simply cook them with BBQ sauce.
Or I might use tamari for stir fry.
Or maybe hot sauce and lime juice for tacos.
I think you get the idea.
Another recipe I really like is Vegan Curried Chicken Salad.
It’s even better than the chicken salad I used to eat!
I enjoy it on a bed of mixed greens or on a sandwich.
Since I love soy curls so much, I decided to share with you some recipes from some of my favorite bloggers.
