Did You Know?

Did you know??
Although using avocados and bananas are all the buzz now to get soft and shiny hair, all it will get you is a messy kitchen and bathroom. These products are great to help your hair for one day, but the proteins in them are way too big for your hair to absorb. And unless you are going to use them each day (yikes!), then you should head to a beauty supply store and check out some Vegan products that use "hydrolyzed" proteins - proteins from avocados and bananas that actually are small enough to help your hair.

Game Time Hot BBQ Wings


These wings are a perfect appetizer for those Sunday afternoon games. If you make them too big, they can get pretty chewy, so keep them on the smaller side. The panko breadcrumbs give an awesome crunch in these mushroom seitain wings. Thanks to Vegan Dad for the mushroom seitan idea.

The Wings:
1 c small mushrooms, chopped
1/3 c red onion, diced
1 tbsp garlic, minced
2 tbsp canola oil
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp chicken seasoning
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 c water
1 c wheat gluten

In a food processor, combine mushrooms, onion, and garlic. Add oil, lime, and seasonings and blend again. Add in water and wheat gluten and puree until it forms a sticky smooth dough.

The Topping:
1 c panko bread crumbs
1/2 c flour
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp mustard powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Mix together and set aside.

Then combine:
1 c soymilk
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tbsp canola oil
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar

And set aside another small container of oil.

Form small flat balls of dough, about 1/8 c of dough. Dredge in oil, then through the topping, then into the soymilk mixture and back into the topping. Place finished wings on an oiled cookie sheet.

Once all wings have been given the panko-flour topping, dip into sauce.

Your choice of BBQ sauce
1/2 tsp powdered mustard
1 tsp chili powder
3 tbsp hot sauce
1 tsp red pepper flakes

Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes per side. After the first 10 minutes, remove wings from oven, turn them over and coat with more sauce.

A Variation:
Instead of making them hot with BBQ sauce, we had success with a "Chinese" style chicken wing. Instead of drudging through oil during the topping process, dredge through soy sauce first. Then, for the sauce, mix 1/4 c prepared yellow mustard with 3 tbsp lite soy sauce. Mix thoroughly and coat wings.
