Air Fryer Vegan Orange Chicken Ready In 15 Minutes

Amanda Castillo's vegan orange chicken recipe

You don’t have to order Chinese takeout in order to indulge in a delicious dinner of vegan orange chicken.

On this episode of EATKINDLY With Me, Amanda Castillo makes vegan orange chicken using soy curls. 

So, what are soy curls? “I actually learned about this very, very recently,” Castillo says. “I just found it on Google. But they are basically whole soybeans, non-GMO, that have been very minimally processed and they have been packaged without additives or preservatives.”

“They are super healthy for you. Very high in protein. I mean just three-quarters of a cup gives you 11 grams of protein,” she adds.

In order to make this vegan orange chicken recipe, Castillo uses an air fryer to give the soy curls their chewy texture. However, if you don’t have an air fryer, she notes you can simply cook them in the oven instead.
