Soy Curlin'

Soy Curls soaking in hot water, tamari, Frank's Red Hot and agave.

I made this dinner based on suggestions from a PPK thread here.

Simmered in BBQ sauce.
Served on half a fat free english muffin with steamed kale.

Soy Curls definitely benefit from flavoring when soaking. I'd previously pan fried them with Mexican spices for nachos and put them in chili and VWAV Breakfast Chorizo- the latter of which I wasn't really into, but Thomas was. FYI, I buy them in bulk from Food Fight!

Bonus porn - Chickpea Quinoa Pilaf from Veganomicon with baked tofu.

I practically adore how versatile this recipe is! I never made this during its recipe testing, so it was definitely an overlooked gem for me, until last week.
Served with Vegan Fusion baked tofu. An easy marinade, but a bit too bland to make again.

I'm going to pick up some Soy Curls when I come to Portland. I have TSP chunks here & I never ever use them, so I'm not sure if I'd use the curls either! I need to make that pilaf, mmm!

I've seen that recipe in the Nomicon, but didn't think much else about it...until now. Seeing it makes it look way more yummy. I'll have to give it a try.

This sounds delicious, I love the idea of the BBQ sauce being involved.

Was the baked tofu packaged and it came in it's own marinade or did you marinade it yourself? Just curious because I've tried pre-baked/marinaded tofu before and it's not worked out.. wonder if that's how all of them are...
