What is regarded as nut meat in today’s world?
I realized that only few individuals truly knew what nutmeat is. I found some entries on Answers.com and many of the individuals commenting acted as if one was wacko when one spoke of making nut meat , because as far as they knew nut meat was what all nuts had , They were speaking of the kernel in the nut when opened.
Nutmeat is a protein based food made to substitute meat .The 1947 book used gluten which can be still found in health food stores today. Many are dried variation. This is combined with peanut butter and soy sauce may be added. I also found a new variation on the internet where pinto beans are used in place of gluten. However the writer says other beans may be used but not red kidney beans. Here is a nut meat recipe made from gluten .
Take a look and the one made from Pinto beans
1. lb pinto beans (canned) /( pink beans, lady beans)
2. medium onions
1. Lb chunky peanut butter
1/3 cup red sage

So here you are nut meat is not really referring to the kernel of nuts such as peanut . or cashew nut.
I want you to see also that I did not say nutmeat is best to supply all the required protein. In the book I found nut meat was added with other food to make delicious recipes that could stand as meat replacement. I noticed that eggs were added to many of the recipe s.
Gluten is considered to be a protein like gelatin with very little protein value by itself as is found in white flour .This is why its use must be in combination with eggs or peas and beans.
