Julie Hasson: Hi! I am Julie Hasson. Welcome to Everyday Dish. I am going to show how to make a quick chicken style salad that is perfect any time of the year. And it uses this fabulous new product that we found called soy curls.
Now soy curls, one of the wonderful things about them is it’s high protein, it’s high fiber, it’s non-GMO, and it’s just made out of soy beans. So it’s a very healthy ingredient to have in your recipes and the other great thing about it is they are almost instant. So you take the dry soy curls, you add your hot water or hot marinade to it and you let it set for five minutes and you’ve got your main ingredient in your recipe. So let’s go ahead and get started with the recipe.
Now what we’re going to do is soak the soy curls right here. So I am going to get some hot water. Now we’ve got our hot water. We’re going to just pour it over the soy curls. Now you could use a hot chicken style broth for this if you wanted, a vegetarian chicken style broth, but hot water works great too. And you’re just going to let them sit for about five minutes.
So we’re going to let these sit. The soy curls have been soaking like five, ten minutes until they are soft and now I am going to drain them. And I like to do this in a colander. And I like to get out as much moisture as I can from the soy curls so that they are not really soppy wet. And I have this potato masher and this works really well to press out all the extra water from the soy curls.
Now the soy curls are all drained. I am going to go ahead and chop them. I am going to put them into a cutting board. You could also do this in the food processor, wherever you want to do them. I am just going to coarsely chop them, my chef’s knife. Just that they are not huge pieces, it just makes for a nicer salad so I coarsely chop. There we go. Now I will put them into a bowl. Okay. Now we have them on the bowl, my cutting board over here. And then this is where we get to doctor them. So what I am going to start off with is dairy free, egg free mayonnaise, this is a low fat one but you could use any kind you like. Add that in there. I am also going to add a little vegetarian chicken soya seasoning to the mix.
Now if you don’t have that you could add like a tablespoon of soya sauce or you could add your favorite seasoning to that. Add a little bit of white pepper, some black pepper, Sando pickle relish and some poultry seasoning. And the poultry seasoning, it’s a combination of different spices and herbs and it’s just gives it a really nice flavor. I am going to mix this. You could also add chop salary to this if you like. If you didn’t wanted to have the delpaco flavor, you could add a little curry powder and some dry cranberries to it. Really it’s a one of those fun salads that you can make here on depending on what kind of seasonings you like in your chicken soya salad.
Hi, we are back. I tasted the salad. And decided I needed some onion and salary. So I found some in the fridge. And I am just going to add a little bit, it needed some crunch and a little bit more zing. And I really encourage you to do that, taste the salad, and doctor it to your own taste. And that’s what makes the salad so much fun is that it’s whatever you want it to be. Okay so we have some salary, we have some onion, mix this together. Oh yeah, now this is the salad. Okay, now I am going to scoop it onto my plate. And it makes a lovely, lovely salad and sandwich. Try it on a peanut, try it anywhere you want, but just try it, it’s really good. Thanks so much for joining me. Oh, and if you are looking for the soy curls, you can find them at everydaydish.tv on our ad our market placed on the website.
