Step 1: Preparing the Dough• 2 1/2 cups Base Seitan Dry Mix
• 1 cup roasted bell peppers, diced
• 1/2 cup chickpeas, coarsely chopped
• 1 tbsp chile powder
• 1 1/2 tsp toasted cumin seeds
• 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
• 1/4 cup maple sugar
• 1/2 tbsp sea salt
• freshly ground black pepper, to taste
• 1 small red onion, diced and sautéed in1 tbsp of olive oil until caramelized
• 3/4 block firm tofu
• 1 cup red bell peppers, roasted and chopped
• 2 cloves garlic, peeled
• 1 3/4 cup vegetable stock
• 2 tbsp hot sauce of choice
• 1/4 cup chopped parsley
First, prepare your mise en place.
To begin the dough preparation, start with the dry ingredients. In a mixing bowl, combine the Seitan Base Mix, roasted bell pepper, chickpeas (crushed in your hand as you add), chile powder, cumin seeds, smoked paprika, maple sugar, sea salt, pepper, sautéed onion, and parsley.
Next, prepare the wet ingredients. In a blender, add the tofu, remaining roasted bell peppers, garlic, vegetable stock and hot sauce. Blend until smooth.
To form the dough, you must combine the dry and the wet batches. Create a small well in the center of the dry batch. Gradually add the wet batch into the well, stopping frequently to stir. Continue until the dough takes on a sturdy consistency. You should use most if not all the liquid. The texture is correct if you are able to rip the dough apart with a bit of give.
Step 2: Shaping the Sausages
