Cooking Time



  • 1 1/4 cup vital wheat gluten
  • 2 tablespoons poultry seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon garlic salt
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 3/4 cup veggie broth
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce, liquid aminos, or coconut aminos, to make it soy-free


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients together and set aside.
  3. In a measuring cup, mix together the broth and soy sauce. Add the wet to the dry and mix until moistened.
  4. Knead the dough for 3 minutes or so until the gluten strands start to form. Separate the dough into 6 pieces and shape each of them into an oblong cutlet.
  5. Place each cutlet onto a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Turn them over and bake another 20 minutes, or until the cutlets are golden brown on each side.

  1. I used Butler Chik\’n seasoning in mine, but there are others out there.

    Also, the 1 TBSP of garlic salt made this WAYYYYYYYYYY too salty for us. I\’d recommend 1 teaspoon of garlic salt instead.

    The cook time also made ours too hard, so make sure to check yours at 40 mins, instead of cooking all the way to 50 mins.
