Basic Gluten Recipe (Veggie Meat)
Homemade veggie meat. Yum. It's so delicious, simple and has great texture. It can be used in a lot of different dishes, or eaten as is. It's a great way to get some plant-based protein.
Using this recipe, I made kabobs on the grill, and let me tell you it was delicious. I'll be sharing that recipe next week, so stay tuned and subscribe.
2 cups vital gluten flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/4 cup water
12 cups water or vegetable broth
2 tablespoons vegan chicken seasoning
1 tablespoon salt
In a bowl add the vital gluten flour, salt, onion powder, and garlic powder and mix well. Slowly add the 1 1/4 cup water, and stir together until it forms into ball. Gently knead ball for 5 minutes. Cut the gluten into small pieces, about 1/2 inch in size.
Add the 12 cups of water to a large pot, and bring to a boil. Add the vegan chicken seasoning and salt, and stir in. If you are using vegetable broth instead, use 12 cups, and disregard the salt and chicken seasoning.
Add the small pieces of gluten to the boiling water. Cover pot and let it boil for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. The gluten will double or triple in size, so make sure to stir occasionally since some pieces will be sticking out of the water.
Remove the gluten from water, and serve hot. You can use this gluten for a variety of recipes: stir fry, bbq chicken, kabobs, and so much more! Or just eat it as it is.
**To store gluten, place in a sealed container and add the water broth to cover gluten. This helps it to stay fresh and continue marinating in the broth water.
This recipe contains 150 grams of protein. Wow. Now, please don't sit and eat all of this in one sitting. Yikes. But it's good to know that this is a great source of plant-based protein. So eat up and enjoy.
