First attempt at Soy Curls

Soaked the soy curls in warm water. Drained and sautéd on high heat with chicken seasoning. Removed from pan and sautéd onions and garlic. Couldn't find any peppers (arg) so the Philly Cheese Steak sandwich turned into a pan gravy. I added some fresh thyme, sage and dried rosemary and let cook a minute then added white wine to deglaze.  When that reduced I added about a cup of broth. I thickened with some potato starch slurry and added back the soy curls. Seasoned up and served over brown rice topped with parsley.

The soy curls were amazing. I had some in Portland and I must say that the west coast is definitely one up on the right coast with the availability of this product. It has a great mouthfeel. For those of us who miss the texture of old this is a very mouthfeely and chewy product.
