It was a bbq kind of day! BBQ Seitan Ribs :)

The seitan that I made last week went over so well that I wanted to make it again.  This time I tried the Veganomicon cutlet recipe which was slightly easier for some reason.  My friend, Heather (that hero, she keeps coming up!) mentioned to me that when she made this recipe she had bbq'd it and that sounded perfect for our family.  I cut the cutlets into rib shapes and then cooked them on low coating it with a homemade bbq sauce.  Here it is, served on some rice with a green salad and some bbq'd pineapple, it was such a beautiful day for a bbq <3

Seitan Cutlets

6 cups vegetable broth
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 1/4 cup vital wheat gluten
1/2 cup cold vegetable broth
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp lemon zest

*(for the broth) In a large sauce pan, bring vegetable broth and soy sauce to a boil.  Cover and turn off heat.
*Place the vital wheat gluten in a large bowl
*In a large measuring cup, mix together cold vegetable broth, soy sauce, olive oil, minced garlic and lemon zest
*Pour the wet mixture into the vital wheat gluten and mix well (and quickly)
*Knead for 3 minutes and roll into a log and cut into 6 equal pieces
*Turn and knead each piece into a cutlet shape (this takes several minutes and I ended up using a rolling pin)
*Pour first broth mixture into a glass 9x13 casserole dish and place cutlets in it
*Bake at 375 for 30 minutes, turn pieces and bake for another 20 minutes
