Servings 4 servings


  • 4 oz soy curls or seitan strips (links below)
  • 1 cup veggie broth
  • barbecue sauce your favorite
  • whole grain buns


  1. Since soy curls are dried, they will need to be reconstituted using hot water or vegetable broth. I recommend using veggie broth, because it adds so much flavor. It only takes about 10 minutes of soaking, then they are ready to be used in sandwiches, stir fries, or anywhere you would have used chicken strips.
  2. After soaking, drain the broth. No need to cook; just add them to your favorite dishes. They have a chewy, meaty texture and absorb the seasonings and sauces of whatever they are being used in. They taste kind of bland by themselves, but once you add the flavorings for the dish they are to be used in, they soak it right up.
  3. For this recipe, just add your favorite barbecue sauce and heat for about a minute in the microwave or on stove top. I have included a link to oil-free Bone Suckin Sauce below, as well as a recipe link to a sauce you can make yourself.
  4. We serve ours with fresh spinach leaves and onion slices. So easy and delicious!
  5. To make this in a crock pot, simply follow step #1 by soaking the soy curls.  Once they are reconstituted, add them and barbecue sauce to a large cooker and allow to cook on low for 1-2 hours. This will give them plenty of time to soak up the barbecue flavor and be even more delicious.
