These are absolutely delicious! Like other strips we have made they go well with just about anything you can throw at them, from rice to mashed potatoes! You can also use them to stuff pita bread or roll them with rice into tasty burritos. You can even chop them into smaller pieces and drop them into pizza!
Note- 1/2 cup cracked wheat cooked for 15 minutes in water till it opens up like brown rice, will yield 1 cup of cooked cracked wheat.
1/2 cup cracked wheat, cooked to the consistency of rice (follow package directions)
1/2 loaf Italian bread, cubed and soaked in 1/2 cup of water till it is very soft
1 medium red onion
1 raw potato
Salt to taste
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
3 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
1 tsp. coriander powder
1/4 tsp. powdered mint
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup water
In a blender, process the potato, the onion, the cracked wheat with 1/2 cup water till smooth. Scrape into the same bowl where you are soaking
the bread, add the cornstarch and blend well, incorportate the rest of the ingredients mixing thoroughly, until you have a soft dough that is not runny. Drop about 3 large tablespoonfuls of the mixture in a skillet with a little bit or olive oil and, using a spoon, pat down to the general form of a large patty or lean steak, cook till golden brown on both sides (approximately 10 minutes on each side).
After they are cooked, let them rest until they have colled to room temperature before you cut them into the shape of strips.
Preapre a sauce with tomatoes, peppers, onions, and no more than 2 Tbsp. tomato sauce, etc. and you drop your strips into it and let heat through, so that the strips will
soak up the sauce and become juice (about 8 to 10 minutes).
All you need now is to add these delicious strips to your favorite rice or other main dish, make a nice green salad, add some bread if you like, and your're done.
