For the seitan, to a blender add the tofu, vegetable stock, nutritional yeast, smoked paprika and BBQ sauce and blend until smooth. Then put the vital wheat gluten and plain flour into a bowl and pour in the liquid mixture. Mix together to form a dough, season to taste. Knead for 5-6 minutes until the dough becomes stretchy.


Split the dough into 8 equal pieces and roll them tightly in tin foil into sausage shapes, twisting the ends of the foil to make sure they are compacted. Place the sausages into a steamer for 45 minutes, allow to cool.


To make the coating, mix together the flour, paprika, sugar, onion powder, and garlic powder. Once the seitan has cooled, put the seitan sausages onto skewers and use a knife to cut around the seitan in a spiral, then pull them slightly to form a spring shape. Roll the seitan into the soya milk mixture, then into the flour and spice mixture, ensuring an even coating. Once coated, heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat and fry the twizzlers for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden and crisp. Remove the skewers
and serve.
