I am so excited to share this video and recipe, on how to make shredded Soy Curls! Seriously, this veggie meat is the bomb! I made taquitos with it (recipe and video coming soon), and they would have fooled the most ardent carnivore. This stuff will change your life!
Check out the how-to video below. And be sure to let me know what kind of awesome recipes you use the shredded Soy Curls in. So far we’ve used them in taquitos, served them barbecue-style, rolled them up in enchiladas, and that’s just for starters. Who needs seitan when you’ve got a perfectly amazing gluten-free and vegan veggie meat at the ready?!Print
Shredded Soy Curls are going to change your life forever! They have the texture of shredded meat, and can be used in any recipe where you want the shredded meat texture. I have only tried it in a Blendtec blender. Unfortunately this won’t work in a food processor (which I tried).
8 ounces dry Soy Curls
2 cups boiling water
About 1/2 to 1 tablespoon Better Than Bouillon vegan chicken bouillon (or to taste of another brand)
- In a measuring cup, mix together the bouillon and boiling water.
- In a large bowl, combine the Soy Curls and boiling water mixture. Let sit for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the Soy Curls are rehydrated.
- In the jar of a Blendtec blender (with the Twister jar), fill about 1/3 of the way and pulse until the Soy Curls are well shredded. Other strong blenders should work, but for some reason the Blendtec does a great job shredding the Soy Curls.
- Remove to a large bowl, and do the same with the rest of the Soy Curls until they are all shredded.
Now you can use the shredded Soy Curls in recipes from Taquitos to enchiladas to Barbecue. They can be frozen or refrigerate for up to 5 days.
