Soya chunks are a rich source of protein and its texture resembles meat to some extent. So this particular recipe would go well with the newbie vegans who are trying to turn off from a meat-based diet. Soya chunks are a great meat alternative and can be combined with a large number of ingredients into flavourful dishes.

Ingredient:

  • Soya chunks- 100gms
  • Firm Tofu- 50gms
  • Red and yellow bell pepper- ¼ th cup; diced in small cubes (optional)
  • Beans- a few cubes
  • Boiled Peas- half a bowl
  • Ginger- 1 and 1/2 inch; finely chopped
  • Green chili- 2 medium; finely chopped
  • Soya sauce- 1 tablespoon
  • Vinegar- 2 tablespoon
  • Kosher salt- to taste
  • Brown sugar- 1 teaspoon
  • White pepper powder- to taste

Instructions:

  • The first step is to prepare chili-vinegar for the vegan snack. Soak the half of the chopped green chili in vinegar for 1 hour.
  • In the meantime, boil the soya chunks and squeeze out the excess water. The chunks should be cooked but dry.
  • Now marinate the cooked soya chunks with the vinegar soaked chili. Add some salt and keep aside for 15 minutes.
  • Now heat a frying pan. Add some vegetable oil and fry the diced tofu until brown from sides. Keep aside.
  • Once the soya chunks are marinated, shallow fry them until there are charred marks on the outside. Keep aside.
  • Now heat 2 teaspoon vegetable oil and add the ginger and some green chili. Add the veggies and stir fry for a few minutes. Stir until done (veggies should be well cooked). Add the soya sauce, brown sugar. Stir until a bit caramelized.
  • Add the tofu and prepared soya chunks. Stir and coat the content with the veggies and sauces.
  • Check the seasoning and add the white pepper. Serve hot with rice or even as filling for wraps. Tastes great both ways.

Kids love this recipe a lot. If you are serving to the kids, you can de-seed the chili and then use them in the recipe. This will add the flavor of chili minus the heat.

P.S: A bowl of chili and ginger soya chunks goes well with any kind of rice or even oats if you are on a diet. It is a low-calorie vegan snack with a lot of flavors to tease your palate. What do you think? Let me know your thought in comments.
