Tip the entire contents of the tin of chickpeas (including the juice) in to the food processor.
Add the rest of the wet ingredients.
Blend until smooth.
Tip the wheat gluten into the food processor.
Blend until a moderately firm but slightly sticky dough has formed. Blend for another 2 minutes on high.
Remove the dough and split in half. Weigh each half and adjust until they weigh the same.
Kneed and form each half into two loaves around 20cm long.
Loosely wrap each loaf in baking paper then tie with string. Leave a little room for expansion during steaming.
Pop them both into the steamer then put the lid on.
Steam for 45 minutes.
When the time's up, take them out of the steamer, unwrap them and place them on the cooling rack for 30 minutes to rest.
To make strips/shreds just pull open a loaf with your thumbs in the centre, then peel of strips to suit your dish. Watch out it they are still a bit hot!
Fry the pieces in a little oil to get crispy on the outside, or oven bake at 200c for 15 minutes to get crispy without oil.You can also just cook the pieces in your favourite dish without getting crispy first, enjoy!
