Vegan Orange Chik’n Ⓥ

  • 8 oz Soy Curls
  • 6 tbsp cornstarch, divided into 4 tbsp & 2 tbsp
  • 1/2 cup of orange juice
  • 1/2 cup of water + 4 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup tamari
  • 1/3 cup agave or maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • 7-8 cloves garlic, minced
  • Rehydrate the soy curls by adding them to a bowl & covering them with water. Let them sit in the water for about 20 minutes then drain them & press out as much moisture as you can. Preheat the air frier to 375°F.
  • Add 4 tbsp of cornstarch to a big bowl, add the rehydrated, drained & pressed soy curls and mix well to coat. Line trays of air frier with parchment paper, lay the coated soy curls on them & bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile make the sauce. First add 2 tbsp of corn starch to a separate bowl with 4 tbsp of water and mix well to make a slurry. This thickens the sauce.
  • Add the remaining ingredients (orange juice, cup of water, tamari or soy sauce, agave, rice vinegar, ginger & garlic) to a large pot. Bring to a simmer while mixing often, remix the cornstarch slurry & add it to the sauce to thicken. Cook on low heat for a few more minutes whisking often. You will see the sauce begin to bubble & get thicker.
  • Add the cooked soy curls to the sauce & serve with your favorite sides. Enjoy!
