|So much protein, it hurts the eyes to behold.|
If you don't have Soy Curls, this would work with steamed tempeh, Beyond Meat chicken strips and even cubed seitan. I was out of apples today, but if I'd had one I'd've added one.
Makes about 3 cups.
What You Need:
3 oz/86g Soy Curls
2 celery stalks, thinly sliced
1/3 cup diced sweet red pepper
1/3 cup chopped parsley
1-2 green onions
1 medium crisp-tart apple (optional).
1/4-1/3 cup vegan mayo (I use vegenaise)
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle powder
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
a small clove of garlic, minced or pressed
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
What You Do:
1. Put the Soy Curls in a large bowl and cover with boiling water for about 8 minutes. Drain in a colander and press out as much water as possible. You should get about 2 cups (if you're using a protein besides Soy Curls use 2 cups).
2. Return the squeezed Soy Curls to the bowl and add the celery, red pepper, parsley, onions and apple (if using).
3. In a small bowl, combine the mayo, vinegar, salt, chipotle, paprika and garlic. Stir to combine.
4. Add the dressing to the bowl of Curls and toss to combine well. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
