Sweet & Sour Soy Curls

Not too long ago I entered a giveway on Vegan Food Rocks blog and I won some Soy Curls.

Pretty much the best thing that has happened this month. They are awesome and now I am on a mission to find out where I can get them. They arrived pretty quick after she let me know I had won and also included some recipes for me to try. The first one I decided to use was the Sweet & Sour; Great idea, so great. I cannot get the taste out of my mouth/head....I can feel it in my bones. I couldn't find the recipe on the Butler website but it is pretty simple. I opted to use pineapple in liru of the sugar since I like to use natural sugars whenever possible and when is pineapple a bad idea? Never, really. I really enjoyed the texture of the product and the flavour is really dependant on what you season with, like cooking with tofu. Of course, I didn't take a picture, what was I thinking? This dish wasn't really pretty....I was in a hurry, had to get to work, blah blah blah. You need to take my word for it, or you can go read the Vegan Food Rocks blog post, she has pictures.

Sweet & Sour Soy Curls
serves 2

1/2 cup wild rice
1 cup soy curls
2 tbsps Braggs
2 tbsps nutritional yeast
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 red pepper, chopped
3 tbsps crushed pineapple
salt & pepper
olive oil, for cooking

Get your rice cooking since it takes forever, or you could use whit eor brown rice for shorter cooking times.
Rehydrate the soy curls in a bowl of warm water for 10 minutes. While those are soaking, heat a tbsp of olive oil over medium heat. Throw in your chopped onion & peppers, season with salt & pepper, cook until translucent. Add the soy curls, Braggs, nutrional yeast and pineapple. Cover pan and cook in the flavour for about 10 minutes. I turned my heat up a bit so everything got nice and crispy on the edges. Serve over rice.

This was one of the easiest meals I have ever made and I think I just may make it again for dinner tonight! Enjoy :)
