For Vegan MOFO I decided I needed to branch out and try some new vegan foods I haven’t tried before. You’ve all ready seen Butler Soy Curls in action in my Not Beef Stew, but I wanted to see how they’d perform as the star of the show. For those of you who are afraid of soy curls, check out the photo below, the soybeans are grown pesticide free and this is the ingredient label: Soy Curls are made from delicately textured select, non GMO, whole soybeans. Compare that to other faux 20 something ingredient vegan meat substitutes! Did I mention they are gluten free and suitable for celiacs? Take that seitan!
Vegan BBQ Sandwich
- 1/2 package Butler Soy Curls: prepared according to package directions and drained on paper towels, press the water out
- 1 red onion, sliced into thin slivers
- 1 green bell pepper, diced
- 8 oz diced portobello mushrooms.
Method: In a non-stick skillet, water saute all the veggies until the onion is slightly soft. Add the soy curls and 1 recipe sriracha BBQ sauce:
Sriracha BBQ Sauce:
- 1/2 C. organic ketchup
- 2 T. molasses
- 2 T. Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
- 1 T. apple cider vinegar
- 1 t. agave
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 1 t. liquid smoke
- 1 to 2 t. Sriracha Hot Sauce (to taste)
- few grinds of black pepper.
Continue cooking until most of the sauce is absorbed and soy curls start to get a bit browned. Serve on a whole grain pretzel bun with Susan Voisin’s tofu cashew mayonnaise, lettuce, pickles and whatever other fixins’ float your boat.
Verdict, my family literally asked if we’d gone off our vegan diet. I’m not sure if that’s gross or not, but no-one left a crumb on their plate.
