  • 4 ounces Soy Curls (half a package)
  • 2 1/2 cups hot water, divided
  • ¼ cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons garlic chili paste or sriracha, divided
  • 1 vegan Not-Beef Bouillon Cube or 1 teaspoon Better Than Bouillon No Beef Base*
  • ¼ cup tamari
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon neutral vegetable oil
  • 6 corn tortillas warmed
  • 2 cups kimchi coarsely chopped
  • 2 scallions sliced
  • 1 avocado diced


  • Re-constitute the soy curls by placing them in a bowl and pouring 2 cups of hot water over them. Let them sit for about 15 minutes. Once they’ve softened, drain them and squeeze some of the excess water out of them.
  • While the soy curls are soaking, whisk together the remaining 1/2 cup of hot water, the vegan “beef” bouillon, tamari, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, and 1 tablespoon of garlic chili paste or sriracha in a small bowl. Then whisk in the cornstarch. Set aside until ready to use.
  • In another small bowl, mix together the vegan mayonnaise and 2 tablespoons of garlic chili paste or sriracha. Set aside until ready to use.
  • Place the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the soy curls and cook, stirring frequently, until they’ve begun to brown and crisp around the edges a little, about 10 minutes
  • Pour the “beef” bouillon mixture over the soy curls and stir to coat them all. Turn the heat down and allow the sauce to thicken slightly. This will only take 2 or 3 minutes.
  • To serve the tacos, place some of the soy curls in on a tortilla with the spicy mayo. Top with the kimchi, scallions, and avocado. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and soy curls.


*Any vegan bouillon will do if you don’t want to use the “not-beef” variety.
