Like tofu, wheat gluten has been dismissed by some carnivores as a vegetarian mainstay that only health food nuts and hippies eat. Wheat gluten certainly is a healthy food, made by washing wheat flour dough with water until only the elastic mass is left. Like tofu, it's low in fat and high in protein. One slice of wheat gluten, about the size of a modest slice of cake, contains as much as 25 grams of protein!
Yet with its delightfully chewy texture and wheaty, wholesome flavor, wheat gluten is completely underappreciated.
