The yuba must be soaked and reconstituted to a soft, pliable texture before
using. It is best to put individual sheets between wet towels until they
turn soft and white in color. They are then ready to use. Using either
wheat flour or vital wheat gluten flour, make gluten according to the
recipe. Roll it out into a rectangle approximately 15 inches long and 8 to
10 inches wide. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup yeast flavoring (unless you've added
it in with your vital wheat gluten). Roll it up lengthwise. Spread out the
cheesecloth and place the glutten roll in the middle. Wrap the sides of the
cloth around the glutten roll first, then tie the ends together. It should
be wrapped fairly loosely so that the gluten can expand a little while
cooking but not so loose that it expands too much and becomes too soft and
spongy in texture. Place the roll in a large pot. Pour over it the gallon
of water and the remaining 2/3 cup yeast flavoring. Cover bring to a boil,
turn down the heat and simmer for 1 1/2 hours. This process can be done up
to two days before serving. Prepare the stuffing of your choice. Remove the
gluten roll from the stock, saving the stock for gravy. Untie and remove
the cheesecloth. Unroll the "turkey" and fill it with the stuffing, or
mound the stuffing on a large greased baking sheet and place the gluten
around it. Place the stuffed gluten on a large greased baking sheet.
Reconstitute the yuba as mentioned before, by soaking for 5 minutes in
water in a flat, shallow dish or between layors of wet towels. It will turn
white and be pliable but will still be fragile. Cover the "turkey" with two
to three layers of yuba. Melt the margarine and brush the entire "turkey"
with some of it. Pour the wine into the remaining margarine: this will be
used for basting while baking. If desired, 2 tablespoons of the yeast
flavoring can be added to the margarine-wine mixture to give it an even
more authentic flavor.
