      Title: Mock chicken (buddhist)
 Categories: Chinese, Vegetarian, Ceideburg 2
      Yield: 1 Batch
    3/4 c  Basic chicken stock
      2 tb Light soy sauce
      1 tb Sugar
      1 tb Oriental sesame oil
      1 ts Salt
      8    Dried bean-curd sheets,
           -soaked to soften
           Peanut oil for deep-frying
  I got into the cookbooks looking for the Buddhist mock meat dishes
  and ran across a bunch of other "mock" stuff, some of it vegetarian
  and meant to satisfy the craving for meat and some of it meant to
  represent other ingredients not available at the time.  This first
  recipe is for "Mock Chicken".  I'm not sure if the use of chicken
  stock would be permitted to a strict Buddhist vegetarian++I suspect
  not++but I imagine a hearty veggie stock could be substituted.  Dried
  bean curd can give a surprisingly realistic impression of meat
  Bring stock, soy, sugar, sesame oil and salt to boil.  Cool. fold
  bean-curd sheets into oblongs (approximately 4 by 8 inches) and stack
  the sheets on top of each other, spooning the stock mixture between
  each layer. Roll stacked sheets into oblong loaf, wrap in cheesecloth
  and steam on rack over boiling water for 20 0minutes.  Remove
  cheesecloth and fry loaf in deep oil until golden.  Drain and cut
  into 1/2-inch diagonal slices.
