They are versatile and easy-to-work with. They’re also affordable in comparison to many commercial vegan meats. On top of that, they’re nutritious, and they’re a whole foods vegan protein.
Today, I want to share my “base recipe” for working with soy curls. They’re soy curl “chicken” strips, seasoned and lightly baked for a little texture.
