Choplets with Hoisin or Teriyaki Sauce

I feel like on their own, choplets really don’t look all that appetizing, so they’ve been drizzled with “hoisin” dressing and paired with yet another variation of pineapple fried rice. Don’t hate. Choplet recipe was from Heidi (as most of my recipes are these days! :O!!) and the sauce recipes were from Chloe’s Kitchen. The choplets are made out of gluten, so if you have celiac disease or a gluten intolerance, pleasepleaseplease do not consume these!

  • Hoisin sauce (海鲜酱) is very misleadingly named, as it literally means “seafood sauce,” but is rarely used in seafood and doesn’t contain any actual seafood in it (…). It’s pretty popular in Cantonese cuisine, and is usually made of a combination of some kind of starch, sugar, soybeans, white vinegar, salt, garlic, sesame seeds.
  • Teriyaki sauce usually consists of a mixture of soy sauce, mirin, and sugar, and is found in Japanese cuisine.

These are good as a meat substitute for stir-fry, sandwiches, stews, etc. :] I’m linking this up with Annmarie, Cassandra and Rachel‘s Meatless Mondays!

Choplets with Hoisin or Teriyaki Sauce

(Pictured on the right with vegan hoisin sauce!)

Ingredients:
(Dough)
-2 1/2 cups gluten
-1 1/2 tbsp onion powder
-1 tsp salt
-2 tbsp nutritional yeast
-2 cups water
(Broth)
-2 celery stalks, diced
-1 onion, diced
-2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp ginger
-1 tsp garlic
-1/4 cup soy sauce
-2 tbsp molasses
-6 cups water

Instructions:
1) (Broth) Saute the celery + onion, then add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
2) (Dough) Sift dry ingredients together, then add in the water.
3) Mix together quickly to avoid dry clumps (it clumps together very quickly!). Knead dough for a minute to make it tougher and more elastic.
4) Form into a log and slice “rounds” off the log. Place them into the boiling broth.
5) Cover and reduce broth to simmer. Cook for 1 hour. (They will look like ginormous chicken pieces, but don’t worry, they’ll shrink back down when they’ve cooled down!)
6) Drain and serve in a stir-fry, stew, sandwich, etc.
