"Meaty" Strips and "Meatballs"

1 1/2 cuo old fashioned oats
1/4 cup gluten flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
4 Tbsp. soy flour
1 tsp. coriander in powder
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tbsp. sweet paprika powder
2 Tbsp. onion powder
Salt to taste
1 Tbsp. coffee substitute (will not give bad flavor but will provide a warm brown "meaty" look)
2 Tbsp. wheat germ
2 slices whole wheat bread crumbled
4 Tbsp. pulverized walnuts
2 tbsp. olive oil (virgin)
1 cup water

Put all the ingredients in a bowl except the water and the all purpose flour, incorporate into a
dough with your hands, adding the flour and the water little by little until you have a nice
dough ball that is neither too soft and sticky nor too hard and stiff-dry. It must be a compact
dough, but it cannot bee either too wet nor too dry.
Set aside and let it rest for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a pot, put 3cups of water to boil. Add 1 celery stalk, chopped; 1 small onion
peeled and cut in half; 1 carrot, peeled and chopped; 1 small beet, peeled and chopped; 2
garlic cloves. Salt to taste. When the broth is boiling, take pieces of the dough and flatten them with your hands, to form thick square chunks. Boil them in the broth for about 30 minutes over a low heat. While the chunks are cooking, prepare your favorite tomato sauce.
When the chunks are done, put them in the freezer until they are completely cool ()so you can cut them without breaking them). When you cut them, slice them lengthwise with a sharp knife. Let them come to room temperture.
Put them in a serving dish and pour the sauce over them. You can garnish them with onion rings if you like.

This is a wonderful side dish, it is not only tasty but versatile. You can use them with potatoes, rice, yams, sweet potatoes, squash, etc.
You can also use the strips in pita sandwiches and also in tortilla wraps.

In the picture I've enclosed, you see the chunks and also the strips after they ahve been cut.



The recipe is exactly as the one above, only that you form meatballs with the dough.
You cook them in a spaghetti-type sauce until they absorb the flavor.
You can serve them with pasta, with rice, with potatoes, any way you like.
