In one bowl combine the vital wheat gluten and nutritional yeast and mix well. Grate up 2 cloves of garlic with a microplane grater and combine this in another bowl with the vegetable stock, soy sauce, and olive oil. When the bowl with the liquids has been mixed well, pour it in with the dry ingredients, and begin to knead like dough for a couple of minutes.
For simmering method: Prepare a broth by combining the vegetable stock, water, and soy sauce in a pot. Cut the seitan into approx 3 pieces, and add to the broth. Bring the broth to nearly a boil, but back off quickly and allow to simmer for 1 hour. Drain, press out extra moisture, and enjoy.
For baking method: Roll your seitan "dough" into a log shape, wrap tightly in tin foil, and bake for 30-40 minutes at 375 degrees in an oven. This will give a meatier, tougher version than the simmering method.Head to the video page to watch the whole video
Begin by "creaming" your earth balance with one 1/2 cup of sugar until you have a smooth consistency. Next add 1 tsp of vanilla extract, 1 tsp of baking soda, and 1/8 cup of soy cream cheese. Prepare the equivalent of 1 egg with egg replacer which will require 1 tsp Ener-G dissolved in 1 1/2 Tablespoons of warm water. Add the egg replacer and mix all ingredients well. Slowly add the 1 1/2 cups of flower, mixing well and then eventually kneading the dough. Roll the dough into a log, wrap in wax paper, and refrigerate for 1 hour. After refrigeration, roll out the dough, cut into desired shapes, and bake at 350 degrees on greased baking sheet for 12-14 minutes or whenever they turn golden brown.Head to the video page to watch the whole video

Prepare the sushi rice by combining 1 cup uncooked rice in a covered saucepan with 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let stand covered, for 10 more minutes. Mix in the seasoned rice vinegar and let cool to room temperature.
Peel the carrot and cucumber and slice into long, thin pieces. Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit and peel off the outside. Cut the avocado into thin slices. Place 1 nori sheet, rough-side facing up, on a bamboo mat or sheet of waxed paper. Using a bamboo paddle or spoon, flatten a 1/8-inch thick layer of rice over the nori, leaving the furthest edge from you bare. Keep the paddle or spoon wet, this helps spread the rice easily. Lay equal amounts carrot, cucumber, avocado, and faux chicken strips horizontally across the rice, about a 1/4-length of the nori away from you. A small amount wasabi can also be spread across the rice.
To roll the sushi: Start with thumbs underneath the closest edge of the bamboo mat or wax paper. Lift up with thumbs, and use the index and middle fingers to push the top edge of the nori down and around the ingredients. Cook's Note: Keeping fingers wet will help prevent them from sticking to the nori. Pull the bamboo mat or waxed paper away from the nori as you roll away from yourself. Once the sushi is rolled tightly, use wet fingers to moisten the outside of the bare edge of the nori, this will help seal the roll. Repeat all steps with the remaining ingredients. Use a serrated knife to cut the sushi roll into 1-inch thick slices. Serve with soy sauce and wasabi, if using.Head to the video page to watch the whole video
Hollow out the Jalapeno peppers by cutting off the tops, slitting down the side, and carving out any seeds. Loose seeds can be washed out with water. (Note: pickled jalapenos will taste closer to what would be found in a restaurant.) Put a dollop of vegan cream cheese inside of the peppers, add some cheddar shreds, and then gently push the jalapenos closed again.
Breading: First dip the jalapenos in soy milk then roll in flour and set aside for a couple of minutes. Dip in soy milk again and roll in breadcrumbs so that the crumbs stick to the flour and soymilk mixture.
Frying: Put a layer of oil into the bottom of a frying pan and turn on the stove to medium-high heat and put the poppers in. Keep turning until all sides are a golden brown. Remove from heat, allow to cool, and proceed to fatten yourself in an enjoyable manner.Head to the video page to watch the whole video
