Ingredients

For the marinade:

  • 2 cups warm vegetable broth
  • 2 lemons, zested and juiced (about 6 tablespoons juice)
  • 2 teaspoons agave or maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups dry soy curls (4 oz)

For frying the soy curls:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (gluten-free if preferred)
  • 1/2 cup plant-based milk (such as canned coconut milk, almond milk or cashew cream)
  • 2 tablespoons light oil (such as vegetable or canola)
  • chopped parsley for garnish

Instructions


  1. Warm the vegetable broth in the microwave or if using a vegetable broth powder (like I did) use warm water to prepare it. Combine all of the marinade ingredients together to a medium bowl. Add the soy curls and let soak for 10 minutes, stirring half way through to make sure all the soy curls get softened in the marinade.
  2. Add the flour into another medium bowl and set aside. Remove the soy curls from marinade and squeeze them to release any extra liquid. Save the leftover marinade for later. It's ok if there are still little soy curl bits leftover in the marinade. Place the squeezed soy curls in the flour and toss to coat.
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet or frying pan. When hot, shake off the excess flour on the soy curls and add them to the pan. Fry, turning as needed until the soy curls are golden brown, about 5 minutes. Pour over all of the remaining marinade and stir in the plant-based milk. bring to a simmer and cook for 3 - 5 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Serve hot with sides of choice, over rice, on pasta, with mashed potatoes, a baked potato, or in any way you enjoy!
