  • ¾ tsp sea salt or to taste

  • ¼ cup whole grain breadcrumbs

  • 3. In a medium bowl, soak the soy curls in warm water for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Cooking Tips

  • 1. Soy Curls can be purchased directly from the manufacturer at www.butlerfoods.com or at other online stores such as Amazon.
  • 2. You can try using crumbled tempeh or tofu instead of the soy curls, but the texture will not be the same.
