How to Make Faux Turkey Cutlets


  • 1Mix 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)
  • 2Cut and shape into four cutlets by flattening it on a lightly floured surface with the palm of your hand.
  • 3Put 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.
  • 4Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 50-55 minutes or until all the broth has absorbed, stirring every 10 minutes.
  • 5Warm 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.
