Meatless Monday: Cilantro Lime Soy Curls

Family Friendly Plant-Based Recipes


Cilantro Lime Chicken-2

Last week at the Meatless Monday Supper Club I shared my recipe of Cilantro Lime Soy Curls in a  healthified version of Santa Fe Salad the soy curls came out so good that I have started using them for things like tacos, burritos and fajitas. I keep thinking of new ways to use them. Funny thing is, I thought I had invented something brilliant and new. but when I did a Google search on cilantro lime chicken I found out a lot of people had the same idea.But, my recipe is healthier and cholesterol free and I and as a bonus not one chicken was harmed in the creating of it.

What are Soy Curls?

Butler Soy Curls are a healthy meat alternative made from just one ingredient, soy beans.  Butler uses  non GMO-soy beans to make a very meaty textured meat substitute that has very little flavor of its own but can take on any flavor you add to it.

How do you prepare Soy Curls?

Soy curls are a dehydrated product that needs to be rehydrated by soaking in hot water or other flavorful liquid. After they are rehydrated I usually like to brown them in a skillet to add some great flavor and remove a little of the water for better texture. In this case we add Cilantro Lime Dressing to add flavor while we are sautéing. It gives them great flavor.

Where Can you Buy Soy Curls?

Soy Curls are made by a company called Butler that you can find at

You can also find them at local health food stores but I think the easiest place to get them is to order off Amazon. 

Yield: 2 cups
