Vegan Barbeque "Ribs"
These ribs are cheap and easy to make. They look like the real thing, and are high in protein.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Heat soy butter and add the peanut butter, mixing it so that it's consistent throughout.
Mix the wheat gluten, nutritional yeast, wheat flower and spices in a dry bowl. Add the water and knead until almost all of the dry powder is absorbed. Add more water if necessary to keep the dough soft and not too dry. Do not over-knead. This dough is really sticky.
Form the dough into a flat shape about one-half inch thick. Add one-half of the peanut butter mixture to the top of the flattened dough. Use your fingers to poke the peanut butter mixture deeply into the dough. Do this for about 30 seconds. Turn the dough over and pour the remaining half of the peanut butter mixture onto the dough, again using your fingers to poke into the dough.
Transfer the dough to a cutting board or plate. Press and flatten the dough as you would a pizza crust. Use a pizza cutter to cut one-half inch strips of dough. Make them as long or as short as you like them. Lay out on a lightly oiled baking pan. Bake for about 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, use a spatula to turn the "ribs" over. Spoon or brush on BBQ sauce and return to the oven.
Bake for another 5 minutes. Remove and turn the ribs over again. Spoon or brush on some more BBQ sauce.
Bake for another 5 minutes. Remove and enjoy your hot, sweet and sticky "ribs."
Makes enough for four.
Nutritional yeast flakes can be used to add flavor to recipes and to make cheesey sauces. High in amino acids and B vitamins.
