Sesame-flavored Raw Wheat Gluten

Sesame-flavored raw wheat glutenGrilled raw wheat gluten flavored with sesame is crunchy on first bite and then chewy.

“The joy of cooking also lies in making good use of ingredients you tend to overlook,” says Kimio Tomura, owner of a Japanese restaurant. Called “fu” in Japanese, wheat gluten is sold raw or baked dry. Since fu itself is tasteless, the sesame sauce should be rich in flavor. The remaining sesame sauce may be kept in the fridge and used to accompany grilled eggplant for instance. Serves four.
