Meatless Monday with Vegan Spicy Fried ‘Chicken’ Sandwich

Welcome to the Miratel blog for our Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.

The perception is that being vegan means eating salad for every meal but that perception is completely wrong. Even vegans want to bite into a big crunchy sandwich and have sauce drip down their hand every once in a while and today’s Vegan Spicy Fried ‘Chicken’ Sandwich satisfies that desire very well. According to the chef who created this incredible recipe, “Crispy, crunchy, spicy, and reminiscent of something you would order in a fast food joint. The patty in these spicy fried “chicken” sandwiches is made from vital wheat gluten that has been cooked in vegan chicken broth, then dredged and fried in a spicy batter until crisp and golden. Serve this crispy patty with your favorite greens and a creamy sauce that’s addictively spicy.” This delicious recipe comes courtesy of Melanie Sorrentino of Rich Bitch Cooking, an incredible site with amazing recipes and mouth-watering images, via the consistently inspiring One Green Planet.

INGREDIENTS (serves 1)


  • 6 tablespoons vital wheat glutenvegan spicy fried chicken sandwich2
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 3 tablespoon no-chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons powdered vegan egg
  • About 1/2 cup water
  • Hot sauce, as desired
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle powder or cayenne pepper


  • Hot sauce
  • Vegan mayonnaise


  • Bread of choice


  1. In a bowl, mix 6 tablespoons vital wheat gluten, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine 1 tablespoon tahini, 1 tablespoon hot sauce, and 3 tablespoons vegan chicken broth.
  3. Combine ingredients in both bowls to make your veggie patty dough. Knead dough for a minute.
  4. Boil patty in water or broth for about an hour. Then, set aside to cool and press with a paper towel to remove excess water.
  5. Mix 1 1/2 tablespoons vegan egg powder with about 1/2 cup cold water. Add water slowly, you may not need it all or you may need extra. Add enough cold water until it’s a thick batter. Add hot sauce to thin it out and maybe some more cold water.
  6. Make flour mixture for breading. Mix 6 tablespoons flour with 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon paprika, salt, and chipotle powder or cayenne pepper. Mix and taste. Add more flavors or salt if needed.
  7. Coat patty with flour mixture, then dip in vegan egg mixture. Allow excess to drip off then put back in the flour mixture.
  8. Heat oil to high/med-high heat and fry until golden brown and crispy.
  9. Make the hot sauce by combining vegan mayonnaise and hot sauce, to taste. Serve on bread of choice.
