Crispy Soy Strips

This is a go to recipe as it is versatile and delicious. Use these crispy-outside, tender-chewy-inside strips for topping a salad or main dish bowl, add to stir-fries or eat fresh from the oven when you are craving a crispy bite.

It is easy to marinate and coat a whole batch, refrigerate, and pull out the desired amount for a quick oven-fry.


  • 1 package soy curls (8 oz. dry)
  • 1/3 cup low sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Oil spray (avocado or other)


  1. Preheat oven to 450 F.
  2. Rehydrate soy curls according to package directions.
  3. Squeeze all excess water from the soy curls, using your hands.
  4. Place soy curls in a bowl, pour over tamari sauce, and sprinkle with garlic powder.
  5. Squeeze soy curls in the bowl with your hands while turning to distribute the flavors.
  6. Sprinkle with cornstarch and toss to coat evenly.
  7. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray lightly with oil spray.
  8. Place soy curls in an even layer, not overlapping. Spray with a thin coating of oil spray. (A full package will require two baking sheets.)
  9. If not using all, cover and refrigerate the unused portion.
  10. Bake for 10-12 minutes, turning half-way through, until lightly browned and crispy on the edges.
