Try one (or both) of these for your family gatherings.

The first one is especially recommended for veg*ns and non-veg*ns together.

  • 1 quart water
  • 1/4 cup vegan 'ch*cken' bouillon powder
  • 1 Tbs vegan 'b*ef' bouillon powder
  • 1 tsp sugar or Sucanat
  • 1/2 tsp celery seed
  • 1 10-oz can Chinese Braised Gluten (chai pow yu), or 10 oz Seitan, drained
  • 6 - 8 slices thick bread, made into crumbs
  • Vegan 'ch*cken' broth (reserved from cooking Tofu)
Slice or dice Tofu.

Put water, bouillons, sugar, and celery seed in a pot.
Bring to boil.
Add Tofu.
Turn down to simmer.
Simmer for 30 minutes.

Drain Tofu, reserving broth.
Put Tofu and Gluten into processor.
