Hi everyone. I am looking for a place to buy soy curls in Pittsburgh (ex: http://ep.yimg.com/ip/I/yhst-17800188898367_2059_6374405). Has anyone seen them anywhere? They are a dried product... I have a feeling that this is not something I am going to find at Whole Foods, but I am going to give it a try if I don't get any feedback. So, basically if you have seen them around, let me know! Especially let me know WHERE in the store they were, as I'm kinda wondering where they might be stored...


Thanks in advance! If I don't have any luck, I'll just have to order online.

Is this a textured meat-like food meant for cooking, as opposed to a crunchy dry snack? I haven't seen exactly them, but would you be willing to consider similar substitutes? Even Giant Eagle and Trader Joe's have similar products...

Yes. You rehydrate them and then cook however you see fit. I've never had them but I've heard good things on the internet! Any suggestions for a similar product that you were thinking of? I'll be out and about this weekend so location isn't too important.

Thanks!!

Morningstar Farms has fake "beef" and "chicken" strips you can find in a freezer section with the other substitutes. Trader Joe's has their own versions in the cooler, in the back right corner, straight back from where you walk in.

You might want to experiment with TVP which I think the co-op has in bulk. Or seitan, which I know is around but I can't recall exactly where.

I was raised in a meat-and-potatoes family (grandfather sold meat for a living) so I never got over the psychology that "meat" was central to a meal. So I eat a lot of fake meat substitutes...

By the way, I *love* your userpic.

The Co-op does have TVP in bulk, both in big chunks and in little bitty shredded bits.

I've been wondering the same thing! I'm familiar with basically every other meat sub. except for soy curls because I can't find them and don't want to order online. Let us know if you find them anywhere!
