Blog_Tempeh Soy Curls_Eve_1If you’ve never experienced the delicacy that is Soy Curls , you’re missing out. Quite often I avoid soy that has not been fermented, but the taste and texture of well prepared Soy Curls™ can be exquisite. Created in Oregon, Soy Curls™ are great in many recipes and according to their website they are:

  • 100% Natural
  • Contain the whole soybean
  • High in protein
  • High in fiber
  • Gluten-free
  • Vegan
  • Non-GMO – no chemical pesticides
  • Grown & made in the USA
  • 0 trans fats
  • No sodium
  • No cholesterol
  • CHIP approved

If done right, Soy Curls™ can have the same texture and taste as chicken!

Recently I’ve become rather hooked on Soy Curls™, but lamented that they were not fermented. Then a devious thought crept into my mind: Tempeh Soy Curls™!

Is the world ready for this?! Only time will tell. As far as I know I’m treading into uncharted territory. I expect that more experimentation is needed.

I’ve made tempeh using soybeans and tofu, but using Soy Curls™ has been my easiest attempt so far. My batch did over-culture and the ammonia smell was pungent, but once cooked the tempeh Soy Curls™ were delicious. With the Tempeh Soy Curls™, I made fajitas and brought them to a Vegan potluck. Both Vegans and non-Vegans gave their seal of approval.
