Today is the last day of Soy You Think You Can Dance Week. I thought we should go out with an amazing product, Butler Soy Curls. These are like a miracle product! They are super easy to prepare and have an awesome texture. They can be used in any dish you may have used chicken like soups, casseroles, stir fry, fajitas, chick salads, you see where I'm going with this.
So, you might be thinking, what about the protein content? Well these will give you an impressive 10 g of protein per 3/4 cup serving! What I find so amazing about Soy Curls is that they are made with just one ingredient: textured whole non-GMO soy beans...that's it. They are super easy to use. To rehydrate you just soak in warm water for 10 minutes. They will soften up into a nice chewy texture. Like TVP, the curls themselves don't have much flavor, but they are amazing when added to your recipes. Butler foods has a listing of where you can buy Soy Curls HERE on their website. Those of you reading in the Phoenix area can buy them at Green New American Vegetarian in Scottsdale. You can also order them online.
One of my favorite and simple ways to eat them is to just rehydrate and drain them. Simmer them in your favorite BBQ sauce for about 10 minutes to absorb the flavor. Caramelize some onions and throw them all on a torpedo roll. MMMMmmmm MMMMmmmmm! A deliciously messy sandwich you will LOVE!
Here is another killer recipe using this miracle protein. Courico Tacos with Pineapple Salsa from Vegan Brunch. I found a preview of the recipe online. If you don't have Vegan Brunch, you can find the recipe here. Oh and if you don't have Vegan Brunch...get it. I tested for this book and made most everything from it. It has some amazing recipes!!
I really like giving stuff away, so today one of you will win a case (6 - 8 oz bags) of this amazing product. I know once you try them you will be hooked.
