Homemade vegan chunks are very versatile! You can serve them with potatoes, baked yams, with pasta, you can sprinkle them on pita bread halves, you name it. This particular recipe for them is easy and very tasty! (We have decided to show you photos of some of the process so you'll see what they look like. )
1 cup cracked wheat, cooked according to package instructions, until it is soft like rice
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup vital gluten (gluten flour)
1 cup Old Fashioned oats
1 medium red onion, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup sweet green and red pepper strips
1/2 tsp. garlic powder (1 tsp. if you're a garlic lover)
2 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
Salt to taste
1 Tbsp. coriander powder
1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. dried mint or 3 leaves fresh mint leaves
1 cup water
In a bowl, pour 1/2 cup of the water, add the oats and leave it to soak till soft. Meanwhile, in a blender, with the rest of the water, process the cracked wheat with all the vegetables and the mint (if using fresh) till smooth. Scrape into the bowl where the soft oats are. In another bowl, mix the whole wheat flour with the vital gluten, then add it to the other mixture, incorporating it well till you have a soft dough.
Heat a skillet with olive oil. Cut half of the dough and put in the skillet, with a spatula, move the dough around and cut it in chunks as you move it until you have separated it completely. Continue moving it while it cooks until golden brown in all sides.
Taking the dough in your hands, form sausages. Cook them in your favorite tomato sauce.
