  • 1.5 cup vital wheat gluten
  • 1/4 cup chickpea flour
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp poultry seasons
  • 1/2 tsp paprika


  • 3 tbsp green seasons
  • 1.5 cup cold water
  • 1 tsp chick'n broth powder
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp cassareep


  1. Whisk all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. In a 2 cup measuring cup, add 3 heaping tablespoons of green seasons. From there, fill the cup up with water until you reach 1.5 cups. Add a heaping tsp of bouillon and 2 tablespoons oil, and whisk together. You can also add the cassareep here if you desire. I had planned to but forgot, rubbed it on afterwards and got a nice marble effect.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into your dry bowl and mix together until the bowl is clean. At this point move to a cutting board and knead for 2-3 minutes keeping a rectangular shape.
  4. Let rest for about 10 minutes, then cover with cassareep and give it another quick fold and knead.
  5. Divide into 2 loaves, and wrap in aluminum foil. For these I did a flat loaf and folded the sides.
  6. Add a cup of water to your pressure cooker and steam for 45 minutes, then natural pressure release. If you don't have a pressure cooker, but steam it on your stovetop.
  7. Let the loaves cool completely before cutting if you want thin shavings.
