My wife has been searching Google and YouTube for the best recipe for vegan nuggets that are kind of like, you know, chicken. Well, her first effort was a success. It doesn’t taste like chicken (thankfully), but it does taste great!
2 cups okara
1/3 cup sweet rice flour
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup vital wheat gluten
1/4 cup bread crumbs
2 tablespoons cornstarch
Seasoning: salt, pepper, soy sauce, sesame oil, cayenne, tumeric and cumin
Simple. Just mix everything into a batter and fry in canola oil until golden brown. Serve with ketchup.
Since we make soy milk from raw beans every other day, we have a lot of okara — the leftover pulp from the soybeans. This is perfect for adding to dough. But we’re only baking so much bread. Using okara as the primary ingredient for vegan nuggets is a great way to take advantage of all that protein, fiber and good taste. Kudos to my wife for doing this!
