Best Blog Tips

I'm sorry I haven't blogged for so long!  This is company time on the island, so we've been super-busy entertaining. I haven't had time to devise anything new lately-- I've been cooking up tried and true recipes for my guests! So, I'm posting an old favorite family recipe this week.

This was a spur of the moment recipe that I devised several years ago. I wanted to do something different with Butler Soy 
Curls® (see this post for info), but any "chicken-style" seitan cut into strips or commercial vegan “chicken” strips will work, too. Kids of all ages love them! Serve them with any favorite dip,barbecue sauce, or chile sauce (I mixed half ketchup and half tomato salsa), and enjoy!

Serves 4

4 oz Soy Curls® (pick out and use the longest strips), reconstituted in hot chicken-style
vegan broth OR use 4 cups “chickeny" seitan cut into "fingers"
1 cup soy or nut milk
1 Tbs lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 Tbs paprika
1/2 Tbs dried oregano
1/2 Tbs salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
freshly-ground black pepper to taste
oil from a pump sprayer bottle

In a large flat baking dish, mix the reconstituted, drained Soy Curls®, or the seitan
"fingers", with the soymilk, lemon juice and garlic. Let it marinate for 1 to 4 hours in the

Mix together the Coating mixture ingredients well in another flat baking dish.

Preheat the oven to 400° F. Have ready two large dark-colored baking sheets which have been  
sprayed with oil from a pump sprayer bottle.

Just before serving, dredge each strip in the Coating mixture, covering all sides. Place
the strips, not touching, on the baking sheets. Spray the tops with a bit of oil from a
pump sprayer bottle.

Bake for 10 minutes, then turn the strips over and bake 5 more minutes, until golden and
crispy. Serve hot with your favorite dip or sauce.

This looks fun! I was looking for a different use for Soy Curls. I will give this a try soon. Thanks Bryanna.
