Seitan is a vegan meat substitute that many people don't know can be made easily at home! It uses a very specific ingredient called vital wheat gluten which is high in protein but low in carbs. Which makes it the perfect "vegan meat" ingredient!

Teriyaki Marinade
Seitan

1

Preheat your oven to 300

2

Using a fork, roughly mash together the beans, then mix with nutritional yeast, garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, and water.

3

Add vital wheat gluten to the mixture and use your hands to knead it into a dough for about 1 minute. The dough will be tough and feel challenging to work with. It's ok just do your best to form it into a loaf or ball.

4

Use a knife to cut it into 4 pieces and individually wrap each piece in foil. Place foil pockets directly onto oven middle rack and cook for about 30-45 minutes.

5

While seitan is baking, mix your marinade ingredients together and set aside.

6

Allow seitan to cool and then place the seitan into a ziplock bag along with marinade and store in your fridge for at least one hour prior to cooking (up to 3 days)

7

When you're ready to cook the seitan, heat a skillet to medium and add 1 tbsp olive oil. Cut the seitan into bite sized pieces and fry until crispy and browned on each side (about 5 minutes each side).
