Easy Vegan Jerky | Delicious, Plant-Based

Vegan Jerky in a paper cone


  • 1 package (8 oz.) Butler’s Soy Curls 
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Bragg’s Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Hickory Smoke Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne 
  • 1/2  teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 12 teaspoons Grandma’s Molasses 


  • Start by reconstituting the soy curls.  In a medium size pot bring 4 cups of water to a boil.  Turn off the heat and add soy curls.  Let sit for 15 minutes. 
  • Drain and Squeeze soy curls.  It’s essential to get out as much liquid as possible, as they will absorb more flavor.  
  • In a separate bowl, add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine to make the flavor mixture.  Let sit for a couple of minutes to thicken.  
  • Next, pour the flavor mixture over the squeezed soy curls and stir to coat every soy curl.  
  • Add to a baking tray lined with a silicone mat, and bake at 250 F for 30 minutes. 
  • Stir, return to oven for another 15 minutes.  Turn the oven off, and let it sit until desired consistency.  If you like them soft and pliable, they may be ready within minutes, or if you like them crunchy, leave them in a bit longer or a lot longer:)  (like me)
  • Store in an airtight container.  


We love to have soy jerky on hand, especially when traveling, as they are easy to grab and provide a savory protein-rich snack.
