Vegan Fried "Chicken" Biscuit!! Obviously this is not autoimmune friendly but a girl has got to give in to her cravings sometimes!! I have been really craving chick fil a or some other type of fried chicken, but tbh these fried soy curls taste so much better than that would anyway!
- 2 cups dried soy chunks/curls (TVP chunks work too)
- 3 cups vegetable broth
- 2 cloves of garlic, mashed
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 inch cube of ginger, grated
- 1/2 cup flour
- 3/4 cup vegetable broth (use what you had soaked from the TVP)
- 1/2 cup potato flour
- 1 cup chickpea flour
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp salt
In a large bowl, combine soy chunks, mashed garlic, ginger, 1 tsp salt and fill the bowl with vegetable broth until it covers the soy chunks. Soak for about 20 minutes or until the chunks are soft.
Heat a pot with about an inch of oil on medium high heat.
Mix together 1/2 cup flour and 3/4 cup vegetable broth from the soaking soy chunks and whisk until no lumps remain. Divide between two bowls.
Once the chunks are soft and soaked, gently squeeze the excess liquid from the soy chunks and coat in one of the bowls of flour mixture.
Transfer the chunks to a ziploc bag with potato flour. Shake until coated, then transfer to the second bowl of flour mixture, coat, then transfer to another bowl that has the garlic powder, chickpea flour, paprika, and salt.
Fry the chunks in oil in batches until golden.
Remove and drain on a paper towel
