As Jason and I were talking last night, we both quoted a line from a movie – same line, same time. We watched that movie last night.
You may recall, I recently (and very vehemently) declared I am once again a vegan, or at the very least, vegetarian. So I took this opportunity to create my own vegan african spicy peanut faux chicken soup.
Whew! Here’s what I did:
I replaced the chicken with my favorite, soy curls. To rehydrate soy curls, soak in warm water for 10 minutes:
oops. Totally didn’t get a photo of that!! “say that reminds me…”
Chop an onion:
Add olive oil to saute pan:
Saute onion + garlic:
Add the rehydrated soy curls:
While they get friendly, add the curry, sea salt + pepper to the stewed tomatoes.
All together now:
Add this mixture to your soup pot or slow cooker. Add the tomato paste. Add the chicken + onion mixture.
This is where I added more heat. Because Jason loves spicy. and because I loves Jason.
Slice some como:

I am so excited about this! Really good flavors, and a nice amount of heat.
