By far, the tastiest recipes that have come out of our vegan kitchen over the years have been the meat substitutes, they have also been very popular around the net. This one will be no exception because it is fairly easy to make, and it is delicious.
You can serve these Savories as is, o top them with your favorite gravy or pasta sauce. Pair them with rice, with potatoes, with anything, or use them as a scrumptious substitute for burgers. Enjoy!
1 cup brown rice, cooked as per package instructions
1 cup cracked wheat, cooked until tender
2 medium potatoes (raw), peeled
1/2 cup carrots chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
1 medium tomato
4 mint leaves, fresh
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1 Tbsp. Chicken Style Seasoning, vegan
3 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3 slices whole wheat bread, toasted very well and ground in the blender or food processor into bread crumbs
Garlic powder to taste
Onion powder to taste
Salt to taste
1/2 cup water
Process in the blender or food processor the cracked wheat with the potatoes, the celery, the carrots, the tomato and the fresh mint leaves and process till smooth. Scrape into a bowl, add all the other ingredients, mixing thoroughly into a dough, making sure that there are no lumps.
It should be a heavy mixture, not runny. Pain a skillet with olive oil (we sometimes use rice bran oil because its boiling point is very high and you can safely cook with it, use whichever oil you like, including grapeseed oil, which, by the way, you can mix with olive oil without altering the flavor of the food). drop the mixture by large tablespoonfuls into the skillet and cook till golden brown on both sides.
Yield: Approx. 1 dozen, depending on the size of the spoon you use.
