This is the absolute best. It is so delightfully creamy and served over soft freshly cooked brown and wild rice makes an extremely nutritious, delightful complete protein. Those used to dairy products will not complain on this one. They will have difficulty limiting themselves to only one serving. It takes time to make up. It is nice to have the gluten made up a day ahead in quart jars in the fridge or frozen in the freezer.
Gluten Rice Stroganoff
Easy way: Mix up ahead several recipes and place them in zip lock bags so all you have to do is add water, let it set up for 30 minutes, and boil in broth for 45 minutes.
Gluten dry mix:
1Tablespoon Onion powder
1/2 C oat bran (or oatmeal blended fine)
1/2 Cup wheat germ
1 Tablespoon chicken ish seasoning (Non dairy, non chicken seasoning) I use Bills Best Chick'nish
2 Tablespoons nutritional food yeast or also known as brewers yeast
2 1/2 to 3 Cups Do pep or gluten flour
Whiz all ingredients except Do pep. Put in labeled zip lock bags and freeze or keep in closed container. I like having these in my suitcase for traveling to other countries. I can just add water and make up when I get to a motel or home where we stay.
When ready to make it up, add 1 1/2 cup water and work it till smooth and elastic. Make into a long roll, cover with plastic wrap or waxed paper and let sit for 30 minutes. Cut into slices and cook in broth one hour.
Broth: Bring to boiling while the gluten sits for 30 minutes. Using scissors or a knife slice up the gluten and drop it into boiling water. Boil for 45 minutes on medium heat, taking care not to let it boil over.
