Veggie Cutlet

A meaty chicken like substitute. It is so versatile you can use it in hundreds of recipes. Besides this, it is low cost, freezes well, and a little goes a long way.

Instructions

  1. To soak soybeans or garbanzos, place at least 1 cup dry beans in about 2 cups of water and leave at room temperature for about 12 hours.

  2. Place 2 cups of soaked, drained beans in a blender with 11⁄2 cups water and blend.
  3. While blending, add seasonings and blend smooth.

  4. Pour into a bowl and add the gluten flour. It will become very stiff, and the last of the flour should be kneaded in with your hands. Knead for 2 minutes. If it is too soft (not holding together in an elastic ball), knead in 1⁄4- 1⁄2 cup more gluten flour. This can be done in an electric bread mixer or by hand. Longer kneading will make a final product that is more chewy and elastic, while less kneading will make a final product that is more spongy and bread-like.
  5. Form into two oval-shaped loaves and place on an oiled cookie sheet. Bake 50 minutes at 350°F. Cool on a rack. May be frozen.

  6. Note: If you're making your veggie cutlets for use in another recipe, stop here. You can slice, cube, or grind your veggie loaf and use it in many different recipes as a meat replacement.  For example, try lightly breading slices and frying or baking them.  Or, for a low-fat option this recipe is also excellent when eaten as cutlets in a broth. If you'd like to serve the cutlets as they are, follow the instructions below.

When cool, slice very thin (about 1/8 inch) and simmer in the following broth for 5 minutes:

BROTH

  • 4 c. water
  • 2 Tbsp. Bragg Liquid Aminos
  • 2 Tbsp Chicken-Like or Beef-Like Seasoning (depending on flavor desired) Serve with mashed potatoes or make into Creamy Stroganoff.

Tip: For a slightly thicker broth (which makes a richer, more attractive presentation), dissolve 11⁄2 tablespoons cornstarch in 1⁄4 cup water and gradually stir into the simmering cutlets.

Serve with mashed potatoes or make into Creamy Stroganoff.

Time needed: 1 hour
Yields: 2 loaves

    I use a crockpot to cook this in. Flatten the dough to fit the bottom of the pot. Make enough broth to cover and this can cook while you are away. Cook until tender, slice and serve or use in recipes.
