It's Hammy Time!
Updated: Jun 4, 2019
Have you ever thought to yourself that you'd rather not eat a known Type 1 A carcinogen at Easter dinner? If so, this is the recipe for you!
This recipe uses Soy Curls which are a delicious meat replacement to recreate the sweet, salty, and meaty flavors of ham, without the cholesterol or carcinogenic compounds of the roasted hind leg of a pig we know as ham.
If it surprises you that the hind leg of a pig is what ham is made from, consider that billions of pounds of ham are produced annually in America. I'll just leave this here.
Here is a quick, easy, protein-packed recipe you can make instead! Soy is the most controversial bean, but don't believe the hype. Studies show soy is beneficial in preventing the diseases it is often implicated in causing including prostate and breast cancer among others. Non-GMO and Organic soybeans are the highest quality.
Hammy (GF, V)
1 bag of Soy Curls (makes 1.5 lb)
1.5 C Vegetable Broth
1 C Beet Juice
3 Tbsp Maple Syrup
2 Tbsp Liquid Aminos
2 Tbsp Worchestershire Sauce
1 Tbsp Miso
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp ground clove
Mix beet juice with 1/2 C of the vegetable broth in a large container with a resealable lid.
Add the Soy Curls to the container, seal the lid, and shake to coat.
Heat a large sauce pan over low heat, add the remaining 1.5 C of vegetable broth.
Whisk in the remaining ingredients and spices until incorporated.
Increase the heat to medium-high to bring the mixture to a boil.
Add the Soy Curls.
Stir frequently, folding the Soy Curls in until the liquid is absorbed.
Cover with a lid and remove from the heat
Allow to rest for 10 minutes stirring occasionally
