The best sweet and spicy soy curls.

I was recently introduced to soy curls and I’m fully addicted. I mean they freakishly have a vibe of chicken but not in that off-putting kinda way but oh my gosh they absorb marinades and flavors! I’m so excited for the limitless recipe ideas. This recipe is very easy. Takes only 15 minutes to prep. I store in the fridge and use on salads or in bowls all week.

In the midst of food prep here so I’m going to get this recipe up so I can share the goodness with you all.


1 bag of soy curls (I buy them on Amazon here)
Water for soaking
1/4 cup of corn starch
Olive Oil for the pan

1/3 cup of chili sauce (you can use 3 tbl if you prefer less spice)
1/4 cup liquid aminos or soy sauce
2 tbl of maple syrup
1 tsp of toasted sesame oil

Optional: green onions, black or white sesame seeds


Soak your soy curls in fresh water for about 10 minutes. Drain and rinse. I allow to dry out in the colinder for a few minutes. Place them in a bowl and toss with your corn starch. Coat well. In the meantime, heat a pan with either spray olive oil or drizzle a few glugs in your pan and allow to heat over medium heat. Once hot, add your soy curls and stirring occasionally to ensure browning. While cooking, whip up your sauce in a bowl. Once the soy curls are browned, add in your sauce and toss to coat. Turn off heat. I garnished with black sesame seeds and chopped green onions.

Serve in a salad, bowl or atop of brown rice.

This dish is perfect in a bowl, salad or atop rice or quinoa. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. And be aware…. you’ll stand at your stove eating it straight from the pan! 🙂
