Ingredients
For the marinade:
  • 1 cup(s) coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup(s) vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoon(s) soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon(s) fresh ginger minced or grated
  • 1 tablespoon(s) white sugar
  • 2 tablespoon(s) curry powder
  • 3 clove(s) garlic minced or pressed
  • 2 cup(s) (4oz) dry soy curls
For the peanut sauce:
  • 1/4 cup(s) natural peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoon(s) leftover marinade or coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon(s) soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon(s) lime juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon(s) Sriracha or to taste (optional for spice)
  • 1 clove(s) garlic minced or pressed
To garnish (optional):
  • 1/4 cup(s) roasted salted peanuts
  • 1 lime cut into wedges
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro roughly chopped
Instructions
  • Marinate the soy curls: To a medium bowl, mix together the coconut milk, vegetable broth, soy sauce, fresh ginger, sugar, curry powder, and garlic. Warm in the microwave for about 1 minute until the marinade is warm. Add the soy curls and stir to coat in the marinade. Cover and set aside for about 10 minutes, stirring the soy curls halfway through. After about 10 minutes the soy curls should have softened and sucked up most of the marinade. If the soy curls are still firm in some spots, you can put the bowl with the marinade and soy curls back in the microwave for 30 - 60 seconds, toss again, and let rest for a few minutes more, until softened.
  • Skewer the soy curls: Once the soy curls have softened and soaked up most of the marinade you can skewer them. Take a skewer and gently thread the soy curl pieces onto the skewers. Some soy curls will be longer and can be folded back and forth to stick them on, and other pieces might be smaller and can just be threaded on without any folding.
    If you are not cooking the skewers right away, you can store the skewers in the fridge for cooking later. Place the skewers in a dish, pour any leftover marinade over top, and cover. The skewers should keep fresh in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • Make the peanut sauce: Add all of the peanut sauce ingredients to a small bowl and mix well.
  • Grill the soy curls: When ready to cook the soy curls, heat a grill, grill pan, or griddle. Brush with the grill or pan with oil, and cook the soy curls a few minutes per side until they are chared in some places. Serve hot with the peanut sauce on the side and garnish with peanuts, lime, and cilantro if desired.
Notes
Soy Curl Substitute: while soy curls can be easy to find in some parts of the world, they can be very difficult to find, or very costly in other places. Soy Chunks, Soya Chunks, TVP Chunks are all basically the same thing, just in different shapes, so try looking out for these instead.
No skewer option: don't want to spend time skewering the soy curls? No problem! Simply drain the excess liquid from the marinated soy curls. Fry the soy curls in a bit of oil in a non-stick frying pan until they are heated through and charred in places. Eat with a fork and enjoy on top of rice served with peanut sauce.
