Add all ingredients except gluten into the water and bring to a boil.

Cut gluten into 4-6 inch pieces. Form pieces into small balls and drop into boiling water.

Stir occasionally until water comes to a second boil. Do not cover.  Cook for 1 hour on medium heat.

Remove gluten from the water and cut about 1/2 inch thick slices like steaks.  Coat nuggets in batter mix and brown in lightly oiled skillet.
