You could also try your hand at making Gluten Steaks - most people love them. If you have a gluten intolerance or wheat, they are deadly but otherwise fine. I wouldn't eat them too much, as gluten is a very non holistic product. But meat eaters love this. Some don't even know that it isn't meat!!
1 dessertspoon marmite 2 large onions chopped
1 dessertspoon Soya sauce 1 clove garlic – minced
1 teaspoon salt 1 dessertspoon marmite
1 cup water 1 ½ teaspoons salt
1 dessertspoon torula yeast (optional) ½ cup diced celery
1 cup gluten flour ½ cup sliced carrot
½ teaspoon mixed herbs
Fry onion and garlic in a little oil. Add marmite and fry for a minute or two. Add this mixture to large saucepan of water. Add all other broth ingredients. Bring to boil.
Mix marmite, Soya sauce and salt. Add water and stir. Add gluten flour and torula yeast until mixture is thick but still soft. Stir in the gluten quickly and don’t over mix. Knead until no lumps.
Let mixture stand until broth is boiling. Make into roll, cut off pieces and put out into steak shapes and add to boiling broth. Simmer for about 1 hour and leave in the broth until next day.
Drain steaks, coat in flour, milk and breadcrumbs.
Makes 12 large steaks or 16 smaller ones.
(You can add ¼ cup chopped walnuts, ½ chopped onion, an egg and 1 teaspoon chicken stock to the Steak mixture, if you want a change.)
