This full flavored dish uses the Soy7 Recipe strips made by ADM. They provide 11 grams of soy protein per serving. They’re a great substitute for chicken and are a breeze to use. They come in a 3-ounce box and are shelf stable. Look for them in your supermarket. Sautéing the cloves and cinnamon stick flavors the oil that sets the spicy background for this dish.
