How to make it
- In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients.
- Whisk in the water, garlic, oil, soy sauce and seasonings.
- It should eventually come together like soft putty.
- if you haven't worked with wheat gluten before, it's an interesting texture, something almost like playdough.
- If too dry add a small amt of water, like a Tbs or so
- Now scoop out portions ( say 1/2 cup at a time) and roll into a hot dog shape .
- I rolled mine out 3 to 6 inches long and a bit over an inch wide.
- Place on foil and roll up and twist edges ro seal.
- Repeat with remaining mixture.
- Place these in a steamer. ( I had a canning pot with steaming tray)
- You need to steam and these do not come in contact with the water ).
- In about 20 to 30 minutes you'll see these are puffed up in the foil.
- Remove to rack to cool completely in the foil to cool.
- Then unwrap and chilled covered in a container.
- The texture should be of meat sausages, same firm consistency, soft sausage texture, meaning they can be sliced just like sausages
- Yied: 1 got 9 fat sasauges using the measurements above
- Note: one can also form these into patties instead of sausage shapes if desired.
