Healthy Meat-Alternative That Lives In Your Pantry

Updated: Nov 16, 2020

If you're plant-based, have you tried Butler's Soy Curls? I buy six bags at a time, and keep 'em in the pantry. You can use a whole bag or not. Kinda like pasta. Use what you need, and then just close up the bag and toss it back in the pantry until next time.

I think the texture is nice, and similar to other plant-based chikin-like meat alternatives. The flavor? Well, on its own, there isn't much of one, but that's good since you'll probably be adding them to a host of other dishes - everything from soup, to stews, to salads, to tacos and more. Don't be shy to try - Butler has a bunch of recipes on their website! As you can see below, I sauté them in a non-stick skillet to add a bit of color. When I soak them - prior to cooking - I add a bit of soy sauce or Worcestershire sauce to the soaking liquid. This gives them a head start on the flavor front.

Soak in water for 10 minutes. Drain. Then, either sauté them (as I did tonight, served under some caramelized onions, alongside a squash stuffed crepe), or put them into soups or stews. Another way to use them is to slather them in your favorite BBQ sauce, then pile them on a whole grain bun, with some chopped green onions and call it a BBQ Chikin Sandwich.

Get 'em direct from Butler foods or Amazon.
