Cherry BBQ Soy Curl Sandwiches are a protein-packed plant-based meal that can be on the table in 30 minutes! Rich and fruity cherries add a surprising flavor boost to barbecue sauce that you’ll just love!



  • 1 cup barbecue sauce (I like Annie’s Naturals or Stubb’s)
  • 1 cup sweet cherries, pitted (fresh or frozen)
  • 8 oz. package soy curls (Amazon sells a 6-pack for the best price, but it’s a big commitment)
  • 8 hamburger buns

Optional toppings:


  1. In a salad spinner or large bowl, cover soy curls with boiling water and set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Puree barbecue sauce and cherries until smooth using an immersion blender, standard blender, or food processor.
  3. Drain the soy curls into a colander or in the draining basket of a salad spinner, and press out as much water as possible.
  4. Remove the soy curls to a large skillet and add the barbecue sauce.
  5. Cook the soy curls and barbecue sauce over medium heat until the sauce is absorbed into the soy curls and thickens in the pan.
  6. Toast the hamburger buns, then add the soy curls and any toppings you like. I highly suggest this perfect vegan coleslaw!
