When you are vegan, you never have enough recipes for meat substitutes. You need a variety of them to keep your menus fresh and to prevent boredom! This is an easy and tasty recipe that you can use in a variety of ways, as a side dish, for sandwiches, and I'm sure you will think of others!
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup sesame seeds
4 slices 12-grain or 10-grain sandwich bread (homemade or bought)
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. Italian Seasoning (or favorite herbs)
Sal to taste
1 Tbsp. onion powder (if you are not an onion lover, use 1 tsp.)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
1 Tbsp. olive oil plus more to cook
3/4 cup water or more if needed
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
In a bowl and using some of the water, wet the bread till it's soft. Add the rest of the ingredients, blending well till you have a dough.
The dough must be soft but not mushy. Heat a skillet that has barely been "painted" with olive oil, take spoonfuls of the dough and drop into the skillet and cook
till golden brown on both sides.
Yield depends on the size you make them!
