How to Make Faux Turkey Cutlets


  1. Mix vital wheat gluten and soy flour in your mixing bowl(I use my Kitchen aid stand mixer. But you can knead by hand if you don't have one.), then add 1/2 cup water and stir until it forms a ball.(use the dough hook on your stand mixer to do this)
    On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for a little less than a minute(I knead it with my dough hook for about 30 seconds on the knead setting)
  2. Cut and shape into four cutlets by flattening it on a lightly floured surface with the palm of your hand.
  3. Put the remaining 2 1/2 cups water and the nutritional Yeast, liquid aminos, Worcestershire sauce, Onion powder, sage, thyme, and marjoram, in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Add the cutlets one piece at a time, being careful not to splash the hot broth.
  4. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 50-55 minutes or until all the broth has absorbed, stirring every 10 minutes.
  5. Warm the canola Oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. dust the cutlets with flour and sear until lightly browned on each side, 1 to 2 minutes per side. serve with gravy or slice thinly and make a turkey sandwich.
