On a recent trip to Rainbow Grocery in San Francisco, I finally got my paws on some Butler Soy Curls! For years I have read on the internet how glorious these things were, but I was too cheap to pay for shipping and I couldn’t find them locally. My two prized bags of curls sat in my pantry for awhile, as I thought about what my first soy curl experience should be.
The answer was obvious – smoky soy curls from Julie Hasson’s new book: Vegan Diner. It’s a fairly simple recipe, and is meant to be Julie’s take on bacon. She suggests using them in a BLT sandwich, but since I was out of lettuce AND tomato, I simply put them on a toasted hot dog bun with a bit of Daiya cheese:
Yum! Soy curls definitely live up to all of the hype! I can’t wait to try the aforementioned BLT. And next time I’m in the city I will need to make a special trip to stock up on more curls!
