Gratinéed Onion Soup Made with Fu Dried Wheat Gluten

Gratinéed Onion Soup Made with Fu Dried Wheat Gluten

Fu is dried wheat gluten. It becomes soft and fluffy when cooked, and it's so good with melty creamy cheese!

Ingredients: 3 to 4 servings

Fu (dried wheat gluten)
5 to 6 pieces
Pizza cheese
5 to 6 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
500 ml
Soup stock cube
Salt and pepper
to taste
Chopped parsley
to taste


1. Rehydrate the fu in water. (I used a type of fu that you slice off that I got from a friend.)
2. Thinly slice the onion, and sauté in butter slowly.
3. Add water and soup stock cube to the onion, and season with salt and pepper.
4. Put the soup in a heatproof soup mug. Top with a piece of wrung out fu from Step 1, and add cheese.
5. Toast in a toaster oven for 5 to 6 minutes, sprinkle chopped parsley and it's done. (Adjust the cooking time depending on your toaster oven.)

Story Behind this Recipe

A friend gave me delicious fu (an 80 cm long tube!) so I wanted to try making different things with it.
