2. Squeeze out as much water as possible.

3. Mix everything together EXCEPT the curls.

4. Toss in the soy curls, and make sure you coat all the pieces.

5. Put in airtight container overnight.

6. Haha who am I fooling, I can’t wait that long.

7. Turn your oven on the low heat, and cook the soy curls for a few hours, stirring them every once in a while.

Garlic Ranch Dip

4-5 tablespoons of vegenaise, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder,  scant 1 teaspoon of each parsley and dill. Mix together and chill for at least 1/2 hr, it’s ideal to chill it for as long as you can hold out the next day is really good. (if it’s too strong for you, add more mayo. I’m a huge garlic and onion fan, and can’t believe not everyone is on board with that).

Agave Sriracha Tofu

I came across Becky’s Agave Sriracha Tofu Bites with Ranch Dipping Sauce on facebook a few weeks ago and knew I needed to make them. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect as I needed to use up some tofu before it went bad and for the first time ever, I didn’t feel like making my scramble. Look at this. I made home fries to go with it. I used Follow Your Heart Ranch for dipping. My thoughts on the dip later. Right now I want to focus on this *must make* recipe. Becky’s method uses the oven, but I’m all into seeing what I can make in the Sheldon (my air fryer). I cooked mine for 20 mins on 180, shaking once. Next time, I will check after 15 mins- but these turned out really good. AND the sauce? BOOM!!

I would’ve thrown out the marinade if it wasn’t for Becky mentioning- save it, it’ll be fine in the fridge. I hydrated some soy curls, as that’s another one of my obsessions. I left the curls soaking up that sweet, spicy delicious sauce in the fridge over nite. The next day I added some red chili flakes, and for the first time in weeks I used my oven. I used a low setting and cooked it for a few hours. Flipping the curls every once in awhile. They were good!

Because my phone went crazy on me and was disabled I lost some (a lot of) pictures so I don’t have a photo of this cooked. Looking at this saucy mixture is making me hungry!! I need to make some more STAT!!!

Be sure to check out Becky’s recipe over on Glue & Glitter. I promise you it will not disappoint you at all. In fact, being inspired by this recipe- I played around with this recipe with garlic chili sauce. That was pretty epic as well! I’ll be posting the recipe for that shortly.

Thanks for reading 🙂
