Delicious Skillet Gluten

Best Blog Tips


Make Your Own Gluten

There are two ways of making gluten. One is by using gluten flour and the other one is by extracting the gluten yourself by washing.
I will show you both ways of making it, so that if you cannot find gluten flour in your locality, you can still make your own gluten.


Gluten 1-

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup Do-Pep or gluten flour
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
Salt to taste
1 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
Water

In a bowl mix all the ingredients, except the water. Add water cautiously until you have a dough, that is neither too hard nor too mushy. Let rest for awhile while you prepare the cooking broth.

Broth

5 cups water
1 stalk celery
1 medium carrot, peeled and chopped
1/2 sweet pimento, seeded
Salt to taste
1 medium onion, peeled and halved
1 garlic clove, peeled

Bring broth to a boil. Cut your gluten dough in chunks, and drop them into the boiling broth. Let them cook in the broth for 30 minutes. You now have the basic gluten with which you can make a variety of meat-substitutes! You can also eat gluten simply by slicing it and sauteing it in a skillet with a bit of olive oil and lots of onions and peppers.

Here is Another Way to Prepare it-

Prepare a sauce as follows:
Pour some olive oil in a saucepan
Add a few tomato slices,
Some pimento strips
1 garlic clove
1 tsp. sweet paprika powder
Salt to taste
1/2 onion
2 Tbsp. tomato sauce or to taste (optional)
Water (not too much)

When gluten is ready, cut into smaller pieces and cook it in this sauce for about 10 minutes until it soaks up the flavors of the sauce.
Wonderful with potatoes, rice or as a filling for pita and even for a pizza!


Gluten 2-


What exactly is gluten and how to make it?

Gluten is the protein from whole wheat that results when wheat is combined with water and made into a dough, kneaded enough, until it has become elastic, place in a bowl and cover with water. Let it sit for a while (about 1 hour), then take it to your sink and begin the process of washing it, to take out all the starch and the bran in the dough.

To wash the dough, place the bowl under a small flow of water from your tap, squeeze the dough and let the water carry the starch with it as it overflows the bowl, continue to do this until the water is very much clear and you are left with a smaller sized, spongy, somewhat graying ball,
which is the called gluten.Then, you cook it in a seasoned broth to prepare it.

This protein is the base for many packaged and frozen meat substitutes in the market. Learning to make it can be an economical and convenient thing for you.
Even if you purchase meat substitutes, you may want to learn to prepare your own gluten, which you can season to your taste, or you might want to learn the technique on how to make it just in case you run out of what you usually have.

Gluten can be flavored your own way, or you can use vegan seasonings to give it the flavor of chicken, fish, beef, turkey, etc.

You can flatten it for steaks, cut into chunks, grind it for hamburger and use it many other ways.
You can experiment by starting with the basic recipes that we suggest, and add to them the personal twists you want. Learning to make your own gluten can give a boost to your grocery bill, it can liberate your culinary creativity and it can also be very practical for you.

Not recommended for those who are allergic to gluten!

New Favorite Seitan

Best Blog Tips

This is the new favorite in our house. It started like many other recipes, with a meal that needed a little something and a humm...what can I do about it?
Try this one, it's good!


1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup brown rice, cooked and processed in the blender with a little bit or water, will smooth
3/4 cups vital gluten or Do-Pep
1/2 tsp. sage
1 tsp. marjoram
1 1/2 Tbsp. onion powder (or to taste)
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 cups water


Broth
6 cups water
1/2 onion, peeled and chopped
1 medium carrot, peeled and chopped coarsely
1 celery stalk, washed and coarsely chopped
2 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
2 tbsp. molasses

Bring to a boil the 6 cups of water.

In a bowl, mix the wheat flour and the rest of the ingredients with the vital gluten, adding water little by little,
till you have a dough (dough should be soft but not soggy). Cover and let it rest so that the vital gluten "sets" the dough, so that it will not fall
apart when it is cooked, (about 20 to 30 minutes will do).

Bring to a boil the 6 cups of water. Add all the ingredients for the broth. Cut the seitan dough into 2 to 3" pieces and drop into the boiling broth.
Cook in the broth for about 1 hour.

You can do all you want with this seitan, in the photos it was sliced and thrown into a spaghetti-style sauce and allowed to absorb the flavors of the sauce and
served like that as a side dish. Invent!

1 medium tomato, chunked
1 medium size onion, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup sweet red and green peppers
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1/4 tsp. marjoram
1/4 gluten flour
1/2 cup water

Note: If you are allergic to gluten, substitute the gluten flour for 1/4 cup cornstarch.

In a blender with the 1/2 cup water, process the potato, peppers, tomato, onion and lentils till smooth. Scrape onto a bowl, add the rest of the ingredients. Cover and let rest for a few minutes so that the resulting soft dough will "set" a little bit (this is only necessary if you use gluten flour.)


Barely "paint" a skillet with olive oil and with a tablespoon, take portions of the dough and drop them into the skillet. Cook the nuggets on all sides till golden brown.
Enjoy!
