Saucy Soy Curls with Broccoli and Brown Rice

Saucy Soy Curls with Broccoli and Brown Rice

I asked you in my stories how many of you know soy curls and almost 90% said they didn’t know what it was! So this dish was actually my first time trying soy curls as well and the verdict is 🙌🏼👍🏼!

They’re a good meat alternative, made only from whole soybeans and are 100% natural. Now I am not saying they are necessarily a health food but I think they can be a fun, high protein addition and a switch up from tofu (don’t worry tofu I still love you 😘 haha). Like in this simple take out style dish which is super easy to make and oh so tasty!

Ingredients
 

  • 2 cups soy curls
  • Warm water
  • 1 bag frozen broccoli florets (or 1 head of broccoli)
  • 1-2 spring onions
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil optional

Sauce

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp corn starch 2 tbsp of water to dissolve
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup sriracha sauce
  • 2 tbsp coconut or brown sugar or maple syrup
  • Splash rice vinegar see notes
  • Brown rice or grain of choice, to serve with

Instructions

  • Add soy curls to a bowl, cover with warm water and let them rehydrate for 10 minutes.
  • Drain excess water.
  • In a large skillet, heat up avocado oil and pan fry soy curls until lightly browned.
  • If you don’t want to use oil make sure you have a good non stick skillet.
  • Clean and cut spring onion and if necessary cut broccoli into florets.
  • Add spring onion and broccoli to the pan, cover with a lid and sauté/steam for a few minutes until broccoli is tender but still firm and not overcooked. If you’re using fresh broccoli add a few tbsp of water here as it doesn’t release as much water as frozen broccoli does.
  • In a small bowl, dissolve cornstarch with 2 tablespoon of water, then stir in 1 cup of water, coconut aminos, sriracha sauce, sugar or syrup and rice vinegar.
  • Pour sauce over soy curls and broccoli mix and cook for about 1-2 minutes until sauce has thickened and everything is nicely glazed.
  • Serve with rice and enjoy!

Notes

You can easily adjust the sauce to your preference.
Use less sriracha to make sauce less spicy, add an additional tablespoon of sweetener for a sweeter sauce and use soy sauce or tamari instead of coconut aminos.
Optional: Add some chickenless seasoning to the soy curl panfrying step.
