Fried "Chicken"
Ingredients (use vegan versions):
1 pound seitan (use Quick Seitan recipe from this web site)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon pepper
cayenne (optional)
2 cup unbleached flour (use white if you want a traditional feel)
4 tablespoons nutritional yeast (gives color and flavor)
3 tablespoons yellow mustard (or spicy mustard if you dare!)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder optional
1/2 cup water
3 1/2 cup vegetable oil

This is junk food of the vegan gods.

Make your seitan according to directions, molding into "strips". When all done and cooled, cut into smaller strips.

Mix together salt, onion, pepper, cayenne, nutritional. yeast, baking powder and garlic powder in a pie plate or wide bowl. In a second bowl, mix water, mustard and 1/3 cup of the flour. Add the rest of the flour to the seasonings bowl.

Heat the oil in a deep fry pan or skillet. Coat a "strip" with the mustard batter and then dip into the flour mixture (crust). Place carefully into hot oil, and fry on both sides until crispy and golden.

Serves: 4

Preparation time: 30 min
