Fake Meat


Vital gluten is also known as instant gluten, and can be used to make "fake meat" by kneading in an equal amount of water plus seasoning.


  1. Shape gluten into a log about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter, and cut crosswise into 1/4- to 1/2-inch slices. The slices may either be baked until puffy, or simmered in a large pot of flavorful broth for about 1 hour.
  2. The resulting "chops" are delicious breaded and fried or cubed or cut into strips and used in recipes in place of meat.
