FRIED SEITAN/CHIK'N (VEGAN) - almost tastes like the real thing
2 cups of vital wheat gluten
1 cup of nutritional yeast
¼ cup of taco seasoning
1 tbsp of garlic powder
1 packet of active yeast
1 tbsp of seasoned salt
1.5 cups of water
¼ cups of liquid amino acids
Mix all dry ingredients thoroughly. In a separate container, mix liquids. Combine flour and broth together. Knead until the texture of the seitan is smooth.
Heat vegetable oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Break and stretch seitan into all nugget sized patties with holes. Fry until it is golden brown. Make sure you do not fry the seitan for too long as the dough will completely cook all the way through. The objective is to have a crispy coat but doughy, meat texture inside.
This was my first time making it and I personally fried it for too long as mine is too dark. It should be a tad lighter than the pieces in the photo.
