View Full Version : "wings" and bleu cheese

Apr 10th, 2010, 06:00 PM
We made these last night and they were really yummy. Other than the wheat gluten, water and flour you can prob leave out ingredients or substitute as you like for the wings. I wouldn't sub anything for the dressing though. It's the best bleu cheese I've ever had!


mix together:
1 1/2 c wheat gluten
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder

mix in a large measuring cup:
1 c cold water
2 Tbs soy sauce

add wet to dry and mix together with your hands just enough to incorporate. Divide into 5 patties, kneading a little, but don't over work.

Simmer (don't boil) for 15 min, in just enough water (or veg stock) to cover.

Meanwhile, on one plate, mix together for "wet plate":
1/3 c water
3 Tbs spicy brown mustard
2 Tbs flour
1 Tbs nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
dash lemon pepper

on another plate mix together for "dry plate":
1 c flour
1/4 c nutritional yeast
2 Tbs corn meal
1 Tbs baking powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp lemon pepper

Preheat over to 425F. Pour 1/4 c- 1/2c peanut oil into a large glass casserole baking dish and spread oil to cover the bottom of the pan.

Remove seitan from liquid and let cool slightly. I used a slotted spoon. Cut into wing sized pieces. Mine was very rubbery and hard to manipulate at this point. I wouldn't handle it too much.

Dredge these "raw wings" in wet plate, then in dry plate, then onto the peanut oil, and flip once. Bake at 425F for 25 min. Flip, then bake 10 more min. Allow to cool slightly before eating, or:

Melt in a sauce pan:
1/8 c earth balance or your favorite vegan margarine

1/2 c hot sauce

add wings and stir. Eat with celery, carrots, and bleu cheese.

Bleu Cheese

mix together:

dash of garlic powder
1 c veganaise (or favorite vegan mayo)
1/4 tsp tahini
dash lemon juice
dash apple cider vinegar

crumble in
1/4 block of firm or extra firm tofu.

chill until wings are ready.

Did you make bleu cheese?

Jun 22nd, 2010, 09:28 PM
yes!! I think i'm going to make it pretty often. Though I hate using that much veganaise...i'm really protective over it...and i feel silly when i use a whole jar in a week... EEP! i really liked the chunks of tofu in the bleu cheese!! what a fabulous idea!

Where did you get the recipe from? or did you do it urself?!

I put together a bunch of different ideas I found online. We've tried making wings and bleu cheese half a dozen times, but these came out the best.

Jun 22nd, 2010, 11:08 PM
well they are freaking fabulous. everyone needs to make them. funny thing is my boy ate pretty much all the damn bleu cheese, which sucks. he should have eatten his non vegan dressing because i barely got any!!! :D

I seem to have fallen into a cooking/eating/food wasteland, but this sounds really good. I'd like to try it. Bleu cheese used to be my favorite.

Jun 22nd, 2010, 11:56 PM
do it!!!

Jun 22nd, 2010, 11:59 PM
HA! All I need is the motivation and a clean kitchen. This recipe is a big step from the bare-bones eating I've been doing w/ virtually no cooking. But, I saved the recipe.

I wondered why I hadn't seen you on the what did i eat today thread.

I've been on there reading, but it's too embarrassing to post what I've been eating. Or rather not eating. :o Ah, maybe today. It hasn't been horrendous in comparison to other days ...:rolleyes:

This recipe sounds really good. I recently made the hot wings recipe out of the Vegan Comfort Food cookbook, and they were pretty good, but I like that Ruby's are baked and not deep fried. But the blue cheese dressing is a definite must-try for me. I just bought some sort of powdered dill dressing dry mix and added it to tofutti sour cream when I made them. It was okay, but this sounds so much better!

I tried the blue cheese recipe last night with the same wing recipe I used last time. It was really yummy! I think next time I will add a little more of the lemon juice/vinegar/tahini for more flavor, but it was tasty as is, and had a great texture!

The wings look like too much hard work and I never really cared for wings anyway. Buuuuut the bleu cheese dressing, OMG. I might have to make that.
