Since I started eating soy curls, which have to be one of the best things about being vegan, I’ve gotten lots of bright ideas: soy curl kalbi, smoked soy curls, soy curl caldareta. I’ve been pretty excited about the idea of making soy curl sinigang and soy curl kare kare.
I had soy curl sinigang today, but I’m not going to elaborate because I didn’t do any actual cooking. I just baked some soy curls and then added the sinigang broth and veggies that were already prepared by my parents.
This looks pretty tasty (and it was) but I gotta say that our sinigang is usually a lot more exciting. We usually put lots of eggplants, long beans, and taro root in it. The veggies today consisted of only some “wild spinach” from the backyard. The broth has a sourness to it that is oh so good.
I’ll get into detail when I finally make some of this myself. I love veganizing Filipino food! –Melissa
Sounds great, but what are soy curls???
They’re a kind of textured soy protein made from whole soybeans. They’re awesome as a chicken substitute or just as a food on their own. I 100% RECOMMEND! …unless you’re allergic to soy.
I love soy (I have lots of tofu recipes on my blog) – I’ll have to google, see if I can find somewhere that sells them!
Thanks for the soy curl reminder! ORDERING NOW!
