Recipe Ingredients for Seitan (Homemade)

8 serving Wheat Free Organic Tamari Soy Sauce
1 cup Vital Wheat Gluten
3 grams Food Yeast
1/2 serving Vegetable Broth
1/10 cup Lemon Juice
1 serving Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 serving Minced In Oil Garlic

Recipe Directions for Seitan (Homemade)

  1. Prepare the broth and pour it in a big saucepan.

  2. Mix the wet and dry ingredients separately, taking 1/2 cup of the saucepan broth for the wet ingredients

  3. Pour the wet into the dry and stir, at first it will look clump.

  4. Knead for about 3 minutes by hand. This allows the gluten strands to form, which creates the texture of the seitan.

  5. After kneading, break the seitan into pieces.

  6. Then knead each piece by hand to flatten it out a bit and make it bigger. It should be pretty elastic, so it will tend to just spring back to its original position.

  7. Put the pieces in the veggie broth. Bring to a boil and then cover and simmer on the lowest setting for an hour. Make sure to catch the seitan AS SOON AS it boils, or else you'll end up rubbery.

  8. It will puff up and get bigger. Don't worry, that's normal.

  9. After the hour, turn off the heat and let everything sit in the saucepan for 15 minutes. Then drain and let sit in the colander until it's hot enough to touch. You'll want to reserve the liquid for storage purposes, so pour most of it into a container first before draining.

  10. Put it into a container and cover it with the leftover broth. It should keep in the fridge for a week.
