Steamed Chicken-ish Seitan Cutlets
These are my favorite way to make saitan. If your like me its hard to find saitan in stores. So this is a super easy way to make what you need in a pinch.
15 oz can chickpeas (To save money I take 1/2 cup dry chickpeas)
1 cup veg broth (I take one bouillon cube to 1 cup water)
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/3 vital wheat gluten
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
2 teaspoons onion powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon paprika
some black pepper
Get your steamer boiling. I use a steaming basket in a large pot.
Get 4 squares of aluminum foil ready. In a large bowl, mash the chickpeas, until there are no whole ones left. Mix in all the other ingredients in the order listed. Mix well using a fork and then knead lightly with your hand.
Divide the mixer into 4 pieces. Form into patties. Place each in the center of the foil. fold the foil lightly. The mixer will expand.
Place the patties in the steamer for 40 min. Once they are finished you can refrigerate for up to a week or freeze for 3 months.
