Shredded Soy Curls

Shredded Soy Curls are going to change your life forever! They have the texture of shredded meat, and can be used in any recipe where you want the shredded meat texture. I have only tried it in a Blendtec blender. Unfortunately this won’t work in a food processor (which I tried).
  • 8 ounces dry Soy Curls
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • About ½ to 1 tablespoon Better Than Bouillon vegan chicken bouillon (or to taste of another brand)
  1. In a measuring cup, mix together the bouillon and boiling water.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the Soy Curls and boiling water mixture. Let sit for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the Soy Curls are rehydrated.
  3. In the jar of a Blendtec blender (or the Twister jar), fill about ⅓ of the way and pulse until the Soy Curls are well shredded.
  4. Remove to a large bowl, and do the same with the rest of the Soy Curls until they are all shredded.
Now you can use the shredded Soy Curls in recipes from Taquitos to enchiladas to Barbecue. They can be frozen or refrigerate for up to 5 days.

    How exciting! I love Soy Curls (because of you!), and I can’t wait to make them shredded! Have you tried doing this in a food processor?

      It didn’t work for me in a food processor Gail. It just chopped them instead of shredding them.

    Ooh, I have a bag and have been wanting to use them for pulled pork bbq or ropa vieja, and had been considering using the food processor to get that texture. I have a Vitamix (no blendtec), but think the processor may work better for me between to two. This was definitely motivating to finally try it. That texture looks perfect!!

    I have the soy curl, but my blender is a Ninja. What can I do to get the same “shredded” effect?
