Soy “Chicken” Strips

If you are a vegetarian, fear not–you can simulate the taste and texture of chicken using soy okara. Below is a recipe of how to make “chicken” strips using soy!


  • Okara from one batch of soy milk
  • One 6 oz can of tomato paste spices of your choice ( I use sea salt, garlic powder, and sage)
  • 3 cups quick oats.


Mix okara, tomato paste and spices in a large bowl. Add oatmeal one cup at a time, by the last cup you will need to mix with your hands. Mix well. Shape into thin strips (3 inches long and 3/4 inch thick)

You can cook them two ways: Bake them in 350-degree oven for 30 – 45 minutes. Or heat a little oil in a skillet over medium heat. Dip stripes in soy milk and then roll in flour. Cook in skillet, flipping once until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
Serve with ketchup and honey mustard.
