If you still miss the texture of meat then, Soy chunks are an ideal substitute for chunks of “meat” in dishes.

Soy chunks are low in fat but high in protein and gram for gram exceed eggs, meat, and milk.

This post shows how to prepared them ready to use in recipes such as curries, casseroles and even pizza toppings.

Put the hot water into a large mixing bowl and add all the ingredients except the soy chunks and dissolve.

Now add the soy chunks making sure they are soaking in the broth.

Cover with cling film and allow to rehydrate for 10mins.

Pour the content of the bowl into a non stick frying and fry until any spare liquid has evaporated and the chunks begin to char.

Sprinkle with more of the spices to taste and continue to char.

Once brown and charred remove form the heat and allow to cool.

The soy chunks are now ready to use in recipes where you would normally use chunks of chicken or beef.

I used the above method for spicy meat chunks in a spaghetti bolognese and on a plant based pizza.
