  • Author: Liv B
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 2


This “chicken” sandwich is made of soy curls cooked in a sticky sweet & spicy basil sauce, chopped and mixed with vegan cheese.


  • 2 sandwich or burger buns
  • 1 1/2 cups soy curls
  • 2 cups veggie broth or vegan chicken flavoured broth
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup vegan cheese shreds
  • splash of nondairy milk as needed
  • your favourite sandwich toppings! Greens, condiments, onion, etc

Sweet & Spicy Basil Sauce:

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp sriracha
  • 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp sesame oil (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil, minced


  1. Add soy curls to a small bowl and cover with broth. Let soak 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, stir together sauce ingredients.
  3. Drain soy curls. Toss with corn starch.
  4. In a frying pan on medium-high heat, add oil and soy curls. Cook about 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until golden brown. Add sauce and stir to coat.
  5. Remove soy curls from pan and chop into bite-size pieces.
  6. Add the cheese to the pan with a splash of milk to help it melt. When starting to melt, add the chopped soy curls back in a stir to combine.
  7. Toast your burger buns and divide the soy curls mixture between them. Add your favourite toppings like greens, onion, condiments, etc (I did greens and a spicy ketchup which was just a mixture of sriracha and ketchup!)
  8. Serve and enjoy!
