PRO-TIPS FROM NUTCASE VEGAN MEATS:

Sticking to your hands? If you are finding that the nutmeat is too sticky to work with then wet your hands prior to breaking it up, forming patties, etc. You can also use organic olive oil.

What if you over cooked the meat? While this does cook very similarly to other meat products, there is still some understanding that needs to happen to optimally enjoy our Nutcase Vegan Meats products. If you were browning the loose nutmeat in the pan and you over cooked it you have multiple options.  Sprinkle water on the cooked nutmeat, it will help bring back the chewiness. Add some of your sauce to the sauté pan and mix it thoroughly. Or incorporate with squash, quinoa, rice the nutmeat will absorb moisture. Make adjustment to your pan temperature and cook time next time you are cooking.

General cooking guidelines: Generally for a patty, the outside will be a little more crisp but the inside will be moist. Note your heat and cooking time and make adjustments accordingly.

Making meatballs? While you can’t soak meatballs in a sauce for hours and expect them to be intact, you can have the loose nutmeat in a sauce for 20-30 minutes and it takes on the sauce, very delicious. Play with the time that you allow it to be in the sauce.
