What?! Meat(free)-balls!

I picked up some vital wheat gluten during my last trip to Ambrosia so that I could start experimenting with meat- and soy-free proteins. My copy of The Complete Guide to Vegan Food Substitutions has several interesting recipes, including their Meatfree Balls recipe. I made up a batch of those today and had them for brunch. The recipe calls for these delectables to be steamed for the last 8 minutes of cooking time in a barbecue sauce and — sure enough — during my tasting of these treats with various condiments, Diana Sauce provided, far and away, the best flavour profile, followed by ketchup. The texture of these was surprisingly (but not unpleasantly) chewy. I'm looking forward to experimenting further!
