Mock Chicken
7 Secrets Cookbook
Neva and Jim Brackett
2 cups soaked soybeans or garbanzos, drained (may use canned or do it yourself)
1/4 Braggs Liquid Aminos or 2 TB soy sauce
3 TB Chicken Like Seasoning
2 TB yeast flakes
1 TB onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 cups vital wheat gluten
1. Place beans in blender with 1 1/2 cups water and blend.
2. While blending, add all the seasonings and continue until smooth.
3. Pour into a bowl and add the gluten flour. Work the flour in with your handsfor about minutes or until stiff. Add more gluten flour if it is still a little to soft.The less kneadingthe more spongy and breadlike. The more kneading makes it more chewy andelastic.
4. Form intotwo oval shaped loaves and place on a lightly oiled cookie sheet.Bake 50minutes at 350 degrees. Cool on a rack
For the chkn salad, cut the loaf and shred in a food processor. For my salad I add in Nayonaise and onions. I'm thinking of adding in some tofu for an egglike feel, but I haven't tried that yet. Let me know how you like it!


  1. I'd love to see your mock chicken salad recipe. I need some new sandwich ideas for busy day dinners.

  2. Hi Yolanda - I just saw your menu on Menu Plan Monday, and I was glad to see another vegan there! I know there are several vegetarian menus, but not many vegan! Hope you have a great week of meals.

  3. Ann,
    I edited the post to add the recipe for you. Let me know how you like it. :)


    Thanks for stopping by. It's nice to meet other Vegans in the blog world. :-)

  4. Hi,

    You asked for my nut loaf recipe, actually I use the magical loaf studio website ( and plug in what I have on hand and it makes one up for me on the spot. It's a great tool. Let me know how it works for you. I'll post the one I end up using on my blog too.

  5. Thanks for adding the recipe! It sounds like I need to try it real soon!
