Thumbs up sesame chicken

Snowdrop’s sesame chicken


‘Chicken’

begin the nite before…
2 c walnuts soaked 4-6 hrs or overnite
2 c sunflower seeds soaked 4-6 hrs or overnite

1 c sunflower seeds, soaked 4-6 hrs or overnite and then dehydrated

1 c sundry tomatoes soaked 4-6 hrs or overnite in:
1 c orange juice

1 onion
2 cloves garlic
¼ yellow pepper (or red)
10 fresh sage leaves or 1 T dried herb
1 t cumin
½ t tumeric
1 t garlic powder
1 t onion powder
1 T dark miso
1T braggs or soy

1 T lecithin to be stirred into batter by hand at the end

sesame seeds

food processer the tomatoes in their liquid and blend untill a paste.
Add onion & garlic, blend
Add herbs spices blend
Add nuts, process till smooth (I did it in 2 batches)
Put into a bowl & stir in the lecithin.
With a coffee grinder, powder the dehydrated sunflower seeds.
Stir into batter till blended.
Spoon onto telflex sheets (I used 3 trays) by the tablespoon.
Dehydrate 6-8 hr at 105-115
Flip half way thru drying time.
Make sweet & sour sauce*.
Dip your chicken nuggets into the sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds and continue to dehydrate another 4-6 hrs

*sweet & sour sesame sauce

¾ c nama shoyu
¾ c honey (or agave)
2 cloves garlic
1 pc ginger as big as your thumb (equal to the amount of garlic approx)
2 T sesame seeds
2 T coconut oil
1 t sesame oil
2 t red pepper flakes

chop the garlic & ginger so it doesn’t jam under your blades, and put all into the food processor and blend till the veggies are well pureed. The seeds will float up with the oils when left standing, that’s ok, just stir when using.
i made more that this recipe called for, because i will be using this on lots more veggies the next couple of days, as it is mind blowing good.


In a glass pie plate: Take a nice head of broccoli and make bite sized pieces. Slice up 4-5 mushrooms. Sliver up ½ red pepper. Toss these in some of the sweet & sour sesame sauce and put into D till broccoli is tendered up some.

The nuggets were a nice change form what I had been eating, but…
The veggies + sauce was the finest thing I have put in my mouth in months!
I will be making that even when I don’t have any nuggets to serve them with, just a dash of sesame seeds on top. mmm

OMG Snow! That looks yummylicious!

I have a question re: lecithin. I've seen that HFS sell it as a supplement in granules. Is that what you use or is it specifically for food prep? Also is in dry form or liquid form?

Thanx!

lecithin: i used liquid, i had bought some for the banana chocolate cream cake so i figured i would use it in more recipes since i had it on hand. in this recipe i used it to keep the nuggets from crumbling like nut rich things tend to do.

hope that helps.

ps sorry for the delay i was busy licking off my telflex sheets after i put away all the 'nuggets' (no i didn't eat them all, i froze most of them for quickie additions to lunches or dinners, haaa)

Oh yay! That's the kind I got!

Have you tried it in the whipped cream? I can't wait to find out what difference it makes!

Snowdrop you kinda have been up to "meaty" challenges, what say you to a "meat" loaf, or stew of some kind?

sure!
meatloaf is an easy one
stew isn't looking too good if you intend to include meat-like things.
they fall apart like a sandcastle in a wave.
a veggie only stew... is a can do.

Great idea; cut them in 'croutons' style/size and when your salad comes ***I order two or three different salads in restaurants*** then just empty a beggie on top and your ALL SET ! WOW! love love this; Joz
