Clearspring Gluten Free Organic Soya Chunks are a quick cook vegetarian protein which can be used in a multitude of recipes instead of meat. Soya beans are simply cold pressed to remove their oil content then steamed under pressure to form chunks and finally dried. With a tender yet substantial texture it is extremely versatile and will take on the flavour of whatever dish you are cooking.

I cook with these soya chunks a lot, and really enjoy them. I used to use Deliciou vegan seasonings to flavour them, but they seem not to be supplying in the UK any more, so I'm now buying Naturitas vegan seasonings, which are also nice. I'm pleased that all these products are also gluten free, as I'm coeliac. Clearspring also often include a free gift in the order, which is kind!
Yum yum Yum 😋
I find these dried soya chunks really handy as you can just prepare the amount you need rather than always having to open a full pack of tofu. It's also great that they are gluten free, as some protein chunks I have looked at aren't. I bought some vegan bacon seasoning elsewhere and have used it to sprinkle on the soya chunks, and I then fried them to make 'bacon' pieces, which I have been enjoying.
Bite size pieces with a good texture. Never had a bag with odd sizes or loads of soy dust in the bottom.
Evenly sized pieces that expand easily by pouring over boiling water and leaving them to soak for 10 minutes while you prepare your veg. Unlike soya mince you don't need to worry about adding too much water. Just drain them before using.
They have very little flavour, so no bitterness of soy, but they absorb spice flavours very well. I just throw them into my curry when I add the tomatoes or stock
They don't go soggy, so when you chew them they don't release boiling hot liquid in your mouth.
I regularly reheat the leftovers next day and they still don't go soggy.
If you haven't tried Clearspring soya mince that's also excellent, particularly in chilli and vegetarian shepherds pie
I cooked Japanese style fried chicken. Lovely texture and I can taste the good quality.
