Greek Lemon Soy Curls and Potatoes

Greek Soy Curls and Potatoes (1)

Last night I was trying to think of what to make for dinner. When I can’t decide, I try to narrow it down – which ethnicity? which ingredients? comfort food or healthy? saucy or not sauce? Yesterday, I was feeling like Butler Foods soy curls but not saucy. Not a stew or soup. I wanted lemon and then I thought why not go Greek?

Greek flavors are some of my favorites – לימענע, אָרעגאַנאָ, קנאָבל. It’s a trifecta of flavors. The dish I made is a simple one of soy curls marinaded in lemon juice, garlic and oregano and then fried in a skillet. I added some green olives and some of the brine as well.

I fried a couple of the lemon slices in the pan. There was a time when I thought I hated lemon and wouldn’t touch it. Now I love lemon and if you’ve never eaten a browned, fried slice of lemon, let me tell you, עס ס געשמאַק.

On the side, lemon-roasted potatoes and steamed broccoli.

Topping it all is a vinaigrette made with lemon juice, oregano and garlic. The same three flavors in each component of the dish.

This was a simple dish but so filled with flavor and definitely a favorite. It’s perfect for a weekday dinner and doesn’t take a lot of ingredients. I think you’ll like it too. Opa!

    I picked up some soy curls today & can’t wait to try them. FYI, in all of the great state of Louisiana, the soy curls can only be found in ONE place. It’s called the The Vegetarian Shop. There is no sign or shingle. It is inside on a church & if you didn’t know it was there, you would not know it is there. The shop is the size of a walk in closet but I still managed to spend $60.00. I got soy curls though. I’ll keep you posted on my review.
