If you’ve never tried soy curls, they have just one ingredient – soy. They are sold dried and you just have to soak them in water to hydrate them for about 10-15 minutes, and then you can flavor and cook them exactly the way you would chicken or beef. They have a nice meaty texture, and satisfy that craving for something hearty and meaty that comes up from time to time with us plant-based eaters. If you aren’t eating sugar, see this post for homemade sugar-free BBQ sauce.
