How To Make Vegan Chicken – Video and Recipe
Makes 8 cutlets
2 cups (265 g) wheat gluten flour
3 Tablespoons (15 g) nutritional yeast
2 Tablespoons (20 g) veggie broth powder
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 Tablespoon (4 g) onion powder
2 Tablespoons (35 g) tahini
1 Tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil
1 Tablespoon (15 ml) sesame oil
1 cup (235 ml) water3 Tablespoons (45 ml) soy sauce
Place 12 cups (3 liters) of water into a large pot and bring to a boil
While the water is heating :
- Place dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
- Place wet ingredients into a smaller mixing bowl and whisk until all of the ingredients are combined.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until everything is combined. The batter will thicken quickly and it will be difficult to keep mixing with a spoon. You can ditch the spoon and use your hands at any point.
- Use your hands and mix to form a ball.
- Knead for 2 minutes.
- Form dough into a ball and cut into 4 pieces.
- Cut each of those pieces into half to get a total of 8 pieces.
- Take each piece and press it between your hands and stretch it out to form a cutlet, measuring 4 inches across. There is no particular shape you are looking for, as you don’t have total control over the shape of them (see picture).
- Place cutlets into boiling water and boil for 5 minutes, until they come to the surface of the water (notice how they will sink when you first put them in).
- Take cutlets out of the water with a pair of tongs (if they break, that is okay) and place on a baking sheet.
- Bake for 10 minutes, take out of oven, flip cutlets over and bake for 5 more minutes.
- Take out of oven and allow to cool.
- Keep in the fridge for up to 7 days.
While the cutlets are simmering, there may be a few pieces that pull apart and become several pieces. This is okay. Just place them on the baking sheet with the rest of the pieces. The size and shape of the cutlets don’t really matter because they will eventually get chopped up and used in other dishes.
