Homemade seitan

(2016-11-14 14:00:35)

You will need

1 1/2 cups wheat gluten flour
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup Besan (gram) flour
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
2 tbsp oil
3 tsp vegetable bouillon powder (I used Marigold Organic Swiss Vegetable Vegan Bouillon Powder)
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp salt


In a large bowl mix wheat gluten, besan flour, nutritional yeast, bouillon powder and all spices.

Mix and pour the water with oil. Stir with the tablespoon at first and if all ingredients are combined, continue with your hands. Knead the dough about 5 minutes and than return it into the bowl and leave to rest (about 5 minutes). Meanwhile prepare four pieces of aluminum foil. Tear off 4 pieces and wrap each piece of seitan like bonbons.

Put the prepare seitan's "bonbons" into the steamer and steam 35 minutes. Remove from the steamer and let cool.

Note: Wrapped tightly, it'll last in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Freeze it, and it'll last for months.
