THAI BASIL SOY CURLS recipe is a very easy weeknight dish that comes together quickly. I was inspired to make my version after I saw the recipe for Thai Basil Chicken online, the ingredients used fish sauce and oyster sauce so I adapted the recipe and made my own sauce. I first started to use tofu but put the tofu back in the refrigerator and decided to use Butler's Soy Curls instead.

I love Thai food so this was so easy for me to prepare and serve dinner in 30 minutes, See my THAI BASIL SALAD and THAI COCONUT CURRY TOFU. I even have fresh Thai basil in my garden, it is so fragrant and herbaceous and adds a unique flavor to this dish. You can substitute regular basil instead.

How To Make Thai Basil Soy Curls

To make my this recipe, I soaked the Soy Curls for about 10 minutes in hot water, meanwhile I prepared the sauce and set aside. I then fully drain them in a colander and toss with Bragg's liquid aminos. I then fry Soy Curls in a non-stick skillet until golden brown.

Next, I added the onion, garlic, ginger and bell pepper and cook to soften. I then added the sauce and stir to coat while cooking. Finally, I added the chopped basil and cayenne pepper and check seasoning and serve.

    Can you tell me what the ingredient list is on the package of soy curls? I have to be very careful due to health concerns. I went to the site but couldn’t find a list of ingredients. They sound good though.

    Can I substitute maple syrup for the molasses? I hate to buy a whole bottle when I don’t use it that often. Thanks!
