This recipe is a little more involved than usual but SO worth it!
Some people ask, “Why do vegans use meat substitutes? If they don’t want to eat meat then why would they try to replicate it?”
In our case it’s because we didn’t always eat like this. We have quite a few favorites that we’ve grown up with and it’s SO nice to still get to have them without killing anything to make it happen!
These are great and super easy….just soak in water and cook them with this seasoning in a pan. We like to cut the soy curls into smaller chunks, they are in kind of long strips.
We’ve used them for “chicken” phillies, “chicken” noodle soup, and “chicken” salad. The possibilities are endless!!
This “chicken” pot pie recipe is SO delicious! It’s our family’s most requested dinner!
