Recipe: Vegan goetta

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Cincinnati vegetarians no longer have to miss out on one of the Queen City's favorite foods.

Yep, we're talking about goetta.

The meaty German-American breakfast food can be mimicked in this vegan recipe from Wellmann's Brands.

Here's how to make your own vegan goetta at home:

Heat one half cup oil blend in a wide stainless steel pot & Saute:

5 chopped yellow onions

1/8 cup ground sage

1/8 cup ground rosemary

1T nutmeg

1/4 cup cafe ground blk pepper

3T salt

1/2 cup chopped garlic

1/8 nutritional yeast

1T cocoa powder

1T red pepper flakes

1/4 cup sugar

Deglaze with 1/4 cup sherry

Blend mixture in food processor until smooth with:

1 cup walnuts

1 blocks drained firm tofu

Heat the stock til lightly boiling & add the oats & bulgar wheat:

2 quarts vegetable stock

6 cups steel cut oats

4 cups bulgar wheat

Cook until it's a very thick porridge without burning the bottom. Remove from heat & fold in the processed mixture. Pour the well incorporated mixture into a shallow baking pan & allow to cool & become firm overnight.

Allow to chill overnight, or at least until very firm like - regular goetta.

Form into patties and baked at 350 on a well-oiled sheet pan for 20-25 minutes. You can also fry the patties about 4 minutes on each side over medium heat with a non stick or well oiled skillet.
