MONGOLIAN SOY CURLS - VEGAN + GLUTEN FREE

You won’t miss the beef in these tasty Mongolian soy curls! This dish is a delicious vegan which is the popular dish!



I don’t actually miss the beef, it’s more the sauce that I crave. I love the flavor of sweet, salty, and a little hint of heat.

Tofu was going to be my choice for the “beef” until I found some soy curls when cleaning out the fridge.


Their sauce recipe calls for 2/3 cup of sugar and I felt that was just too much so my Mongolian soy curls, I came up with a recipe only uses 1 TB of maple syrup to keep the sugar low.

I also didn’t want to fry them in a cup of oil so I decided to bake the  soy curls They still crisped up but without all the extra calories. Some fat is good but we don’t need too much.
I love this recipe because:
  • it’s healthier than the restaurant version (less fat and sugar)
  • you don’t have to go out to a restaurant (or spend money) to have this tasty version
  • it’s still full of protein
  • it’s vegan!
Mongolian Soy Curls Recipe
You won’t miss the beef in these tasty Mongolian soy curls! This dish is a delicious vegan which is the popular dish!



Ingredients
FOR THE SOY CURL "BEEF"
  • 2 C soy curls
  • Boiling water (enough to cover soy curls)
  • 1 TB olive oil or melted coconut oil
FOR THE SAUCE
  • 1 TB cornstarch mixed with 1 TB of warm water
  • 3 TB tamari or soy sauce if not gf
  • 1/3 C veggie broth (more if the sauce gets too thick)
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1/2 Tsp ginger minced
  • 1 TB maple syrup
  • 1/2-1 TB red pepper flakes (depending on how hot you like it)
Instructions
  1. Soak soy curls in boiling water for 10 minutes (or until fully rehydrated).
  2. Preheat oven or toaster over to 375 degrees.
  3. Drain soy curls and press all the water out of them. I usually rinse them with cold water then wring them out with my hands. You want as much water out of them as possible. 
  4. Cover baking pan with oil so soy curls do not stick to it. 
  5. Add soy curls to baking pan and bake for 15 minutes, turning a few times so that nothing is sticking to the pan.
  6. While soy curls are baking, mix sauce ingredients together, add to sauce pot and heat to a boil. 
  7. Once boiling, turn down heat and cook for a few minutes until sauce thickens just a bit. If sauce gets too thick add a bit more veggie broth. 
  8. Pour over soy curls and enjoy!
