Recipe Ingredients for amazing seitan loaf

1 cup onion, diced
2 T. corn oil, plus additional for oiling pan
1 t. ginger powder
4 cups vegetable broth
2/3 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 T. toasted sesame oil
1 t. dried thyme
1 t. rubbed sage
3/4 t. salt
3/4 t. freshly ground black pepper
4 1/2 cups wheat gluten flour
3/4 cup unbleached flour

Recipe Directions for amazing seitan loaf

  1. ? In a non-stick skillet, saute the onion in the oil, over low heat, for 7 minutes or until lightly browned. Add the ginger and saute an additional 2 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat.

  2. ? Transfer the sauteed onion mixture to a blender or food processor. Add the vegetable broth, nutritional yeast flakes, soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, thyme, sage, salt, and pepper, and process for 2-3 minutes or until smooth. Transfer half of the wet ingredients to a small bowl and set aside.

  3. ? In a large bowl, place the vital wheat gluten and flour, and stir well to combine. Add some of the remaining wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stir well to combine, and continue to add the remaining liquid, as needed, to form a firm dough. Using your hands, knead the dough in the bowl for 5 minutes, or if you have a mixer with dough hooks, use it for a minute. That's what I did, and it was so easy that way (seitan is really tough to knead)

  4. ? Using a little corn oil, lightly oil a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Stretch the dough slightly and then press it into the loaf pan. Pour the half of the reserved wet ingredients over the top of the roast. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, then remove the loaf pan from the oven and pour the remaining reserved wet ingredients over the top of the roast. Reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees and return the roast to the oven.

  5. ? Bake an additional 25-35 minutes or until nearly all of the liquid is absorbed(i usualy have to cut the loaf in half and bake it awhile longer) and the roast is very firm to the touch. Remove the loaf pan from the oven and set aside for 10 minutes to cool slightly. Bring the pan over to the serving plate, turn it upside down to release the loaf and voila! Dinner is served!

  6. ? also good if you make extra liquid mixtre for a gravy
