Teriyaki Soy Curls with Pineapple and Bell Pepper

It has been a while since I have experimented with new recipes. I have been extremely busy for the past 2 months, doing a lot of jobs that have brought out my skills and passion all summer long.

From catering for business events to being the chef for Vacation Bible School (cooking 3 meals per day for a week). The following week, I taught cooking classes to 75 adults and for the last 2 weeks,  I was the nurse at a summer camp for 73 young people. It has been a whirlwind of various events but I thoroughly enjoyed every second.

 Teriyaki Soy Curls with Pineapple and Bell Pepper

Needless to say for the last 2 weeks I rarely cooked, I worked all day and I was on call during the night. I met hundreds of wonderful people and made lots of new friends. I’m so grateful for the opportunity I had to serve. I’m slowing getting back into blogging and creating new recipes like this Teriyaki Soy Curls with Pineapple and Bell Pepper.

Soy Curls

What is Soycurls?

Soy curls is a meat alternative made from whole organic soybeans, they have been cooked and dehydrated. it is not refined or isolated protein instead it contains the entire soybean. Soy curls are best stored in the freezer, when ready to prepare, they are rehydrated and it has the texture of shredded meat.

My hubby recently ordered a box of Soy Curls from Butler Foods, Butler Foods are the only makers of soy curls.  I decided to experiment with a new recipe and I came up with this Teriyaki Soycurls with Pineapple and Sweet Peppers recipe. The result was finger licking good, my hubby said to me that this recipe was a keeper. I serve it with brown rice and everyone enjoyed it.

How To Make Teriyaki Soycurls With Pineapple and Bell Pepper

To make the Teriyaki Soy Curls with Pineapple and Bell Pepper, I soaked the soy curls in warm water for 10 minutes, after I drain the water and add seasonings. I bake until brown (at this step you can lightly fry in a skillet).

As it’s baking, I prepare the sauce by sauteing the garlic, ginger, and bell pepper until tender, I added pineapple juice, coconut sugar, and Bragg’s liquid aminos and cook on medium. I then thicken the sauce with a mixture of cornstarch and water. Finally, I toss the soy curls and pineapple chunks in the sauce and garnish with chopped spring onions.

    This is great! I’ve made it several times. Such an easy go to recipe. I like to add water chestnuts. Today I am going to add baby corn. Thank you Ms. Blackwood for sharing your recipe. Bless you.

    This was delicious! My husband and I made this with tofu rather than soy curls because that’s what we had on hand and it turned out super well; I do want to give this a try with soy curls in the future because they sound intriguing. The sauce is the best part! We had to hold ourselves back from eating it all last night so that we could have the leftovers for lunch today. :)

    Really good. I do not use oil in my cooking, so I omitted that. Added green pepper too, but then I love peppers…

    This was delicious! I make a few modifications. I used pineapple tidbits because that is what I had on hand. Only used 1 tsp of sesame oil for flavor and sauted garlic, ginger and bell pepper in the pineapple juice. Used 2 TBSP of Madhava Agave Five low gycemic sweetener instead of sugar. And added a few drops of coconut vinegar to give it a bit of sweet and sour taste. Yum. So good that I ate some cold this morning for breakfast. Thanks.
