Smoky Soy Curl Jerky

Meet your new poolside, beachside, backyard-side snacking companion: Spicy Vegan Jerky.⁠⁣⁣⁠
Made with Butler soy curls and a blend of seasonings, this jerky is our go-to sweet, spicy & savory snack. It’s perfect on a charcuterie board with vegan cheese and all the accessories, or just on its own. ⁣⁣⁠
And when major league sports starts up again, you’ve got game-time snacking DONE!⁠⁣⁣⁠ You can get the recipe for a BBQ version of this Soy Jerky in my new cookbook, The Budget-Friendly Vegan Cookbook, but if you can’t wait, I’m sharing the original Smoky Spicy Version here.

You can find Butler Soy Curls online at Amazon and in most specialty/natural food stores.
