Lettuce Wraps With Maple Miso Soy Curls

Jump to Recipe

I have a beautiful lettuce wrap planned for you today. The wrap includes Soy Curls seasoned with barley miso and maple syrup, tucked into lovely red lettuce leaves along with chives, tomatoes, and a creamy maple miso sauce.

Have you tried Soy Curls? Soy Curls are dehydrated soybeans, (plus some bits, but I embrace the bits too) created by Butler Foods, found here. I have also purchased Soy Curls at my local Natural Grocers. Soy Curls are minimally processed soybean and a proper choice for the whole food plant-based way of eating. It is an excellent source of protein and fiber. Soy Curls are all about the texture. Firm like al dente pasta. Rehydrating Soy Curls by cooking in the seasoned sauce allows them to soak up all the flavor and remain firm. They can be eaten immediately after sautéing, however, I like to add the last step of air frying to create a crisp outer layer. Mmmmm…..I think you will like it too.

The barley miso that I use in this recipe has a unique, slightly sweet, deep flavor and miso is naturally rich in probiotics. I use the South River Miso Company brand, also found at my Natural Grocer, or found here. The final little treat is the addition of 100% Pure Maple Syrup. 100% Pure Maple Syrup is a minimally proccessed sugar and an acceptable sweetener if used in moderation. The sweet and savory of the maple syrup and miso is a satisfying combination. The lettuce leaf wrap with chives and tomatoes adds a refreshing finish. And, don’t forget the sauce! Its another magic sauce! You’ll love it! ** A note regarding air frying. I have a Breville Smart Oven with a preset air fry setting. The temp is 405˚ **

Maple Miso Soy Curls

  • 1 1/2 Cup Soy Curls http://www.butlerfoods.com

Wrap

  • 1 Head Red Leaf Lettuce

Instructions

Maple Miso Dressing

  • Simmer raw cashews in 1 cup of water for five minutes. Drain and add to high speed blender.
  • Add remaining water,fresh lemon juice, miso, and maple syrup to blender with cashews and blend until smooth.

Maple Miso Soy Curls

  • Add miso, maple syrup and water to small mixing bowl and whisk together until incorporated.
  • Pour whisked ingredients into saute pan along with soy curls. Saute until the sauce is absorbed and soy curls are lightly browned. The Soy Curls are ready to eat now or…. if you have and air fryer, add the next step.
  • Transfer the Soy Curls to your air fryer and cook until lightly browned. The air fryer adds a crisp outer layer on the Soy Curls.

  • Remove lettuce leaves from the head of lettuce, rinse and pat dry. Rinse the chives and tomatoes and pat dry.
