Soy Curls are one of the best ready-made, meat-like products.
They are made from whole, non-GMO soybeans that have been cooked, mashed, extruded, and dried. That’s all. Nothing added or removed.
When soaked or simmered in seasoned water for a few minutes, they absorb the flavor you give them and have a chewy meaty texture. Good in fajitas, stir-fry, or stews.
Available by mail order from Wildwood Natural Foods (phone: 706-820-0915). Variation: Instead of Soy Curls, use 2 cups cooked black, red, or kidney beans, drained, adding them with the corn & tomatoes & reduce water to ¼ cup.
