dank (seitan) nugg(et)s

Tonight I decided I wanted to have some good old seitan nuggets. I have been experimenting with using combinations of grains and beans in my seitan lately and have found some really good combinations. This one in particular is great.

dank (seitan) nugg(et)s

2 cups cooked quinoa
2 cups dried TVP rehydrated with 2 cups no chicken broth or vegetable broth
2 cups vital wheat gluten flour
1 to 1.5 cups vegan no chicken broth or vegetable broth
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp salt
ground black pepper
4 tbsps olive oil, plus more to coat the pan
dried herbs if you want.

Mix all the ingredients together so you get a semi sticky and crumbly dough. Press into a medium sized cookie sheet pan (with edges about 1 inch high) that has been liberally oiled up. Place in a preheated 350F oven with a tray of water in the bottom to keep the oven air moist and bake for about 20-25 minutes. Let cool then cut into bit size nuggets. If you wish you could bread these then fry them, but i just eat them after the first cooking process. Serve with some bbq and ranch, vegan of course.
