What started as an instructional video ended up as a new recipe! This EASY BBQ Soy Curls Recipe is super simple to make and it only takes about 30 minutes.
Who doesn't like good BBQ? And I even made a video!
I can't count how many times I have mentioned Soy Curls to non-vegans only to get that 'deer-in-the-headlights' stare .....
They either have never heard of them, bought some once and never opened the bag, or think they are completely alien 👽.
So I thought I would make a video explaining exactly what Soy Curls are, who makes them, how they're made, where to buy them, and all that jazz.....
...and demo an easy recipe to showcase just how good they can be.
And here we go, my first recipe video in quite a long time.
Can't wait to get started.
Oh and if you LIKE all the new videos I've been making this year, please do all the YouTube stuff (like, comment, subscribe, ring the bell), so YouTube will share it to even more people.
Easy BBQ Soy Curls
Four ounces of Soy Curls is about ½ of a standard 8oz bag - and will make 4-6 servings.
Soy curls are dried and crispy, so they will need to be rehydrated before you can use them. Simply place them in a bowl and add about 1.5 cups of hot water and let them soak.
I like to flavor the water, to add some flavor to the soy curls, otherwise, they are very bland, so I personally use a tablespoon of marmite.
But you can add 2 Tbls of low-sodium soy sauce instead, or about 1 tsp of Better Than Bouillon Veggie Base - I believe the sodium count is roughly the same.
While the soy curls are enjoying their bath, dice up the veggies and saute them in a skillet - just until they soften a little. Then drain the soy curls, giving them a really good squeeze to eliminate as much moisture as you can.
Then chop them up if you want (some people like the long strips, and others like to use a food processor) and add them to the skillet. Mix everything really well and fry just until you get a little color on the soy curls, then add about a cup of your favorite BBQ Sauce.
Once everything is hot and bubbly, you can serve them in a bun or however you like your BBQ. I dress my "Chopped Soy" sandwich in a little mustard and a few jalapenos. Yum!
As I said - this started out to be an instructional video showing all the new folks what soy curls are and how easy they can be to prepare - and it turned into yet another BBQ recipe lol.
That's ok - we can never have enough BBQ, right?
