Instructions
  1. Rehydrate soy curls according to package instructions.
  2. While soy curls are rehydrating, mix together yoghurt, seasonings, and apple juice.
  3. Drain rehydrated soy curls and place into a bowl. Add arrowroot starch and mix together with hands until well-coated.
  4. Saute soy curls in a large skillet for about 10 minutes over medium heat. Add 1-2 teaspoons of oil to prevent sticking, if needed. Cook until golden brown and a bit crispy. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely. 
  5. In a medium bowl, mix soy curls with curry dressing, currants/raisins/sultanas, and cashews.
  6. Cut open pita or roll and add soy curls and sliced veggies. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days.
