Why order takeout when you can make a better version at home? Mmmm this is so good. Soy curls replicate chicken better than any other product out there; I buy them by the case from Amazon. No soy curls? This recipe would translate well to tofu(pic below) or chick'n flavored seitan as well. No rules.
INGREDIENTS 1/2 (4oz) bag Butler Soy Curls or 15oz extra firm tofu, drained & pressed 1.5 cups rice of choice 1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 large navel orange 3 Tbsp tamari/soy sauce 1.5 Tbsp rice vinegar 1 Tbsp sugar 3 Tbsp cornstarch 1 Tbsp sesame seeds 4 cups vegetables (green beans, carrots, pea pods, peppers) sliced 3 green onions, sliced
DIRECTIONS 1. Prepare rice according to package directions. Soak soy curls in 1 cup very hot water for 10 minutes; drain, squeeze liquid out and pat dry. 2. While rice is cooking, zest orange into a small bowl. Juice the orange into the bowl, then add the minced ginger, minced garlic, tamari/soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sugar. Whisk until sugar disolves. 3. In a large bowl, whisk together the cornstarch, sesame seeds with 2 Tbsp water. Add the soy curls(or tofu) and toss to coat. 4. In a large skillet over medium-high heat add 2 Tbsp oil. Once hot, add the soy curls(or tofu) and cook, until browned on all sides, about 6 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat, set aside. 5. Return skillet to stove over medium-high heat with 1 Tbsp vegetable oil if needed. Once hot, add vegetables except green onions, stir fry 5 minutes. Add 2 Tbsp water and continue to stirfry another minute or 2. 6. Return soy curls(or tofu) to skillet. Add the orange sauce and cook until the sauce is slightly thickened, about 2 to 3 minutes. 7 . Serve sticky orange soy curls and vegetables over rice. Sprinkle with sliced scallions and additional sesame seeds if desired.
