1 cup vital wheat gluten
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon thyme
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 cup water or vegetable stock
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix gluten, nutritional yeast, and thyme together in a bowl.
2. In a separate bowl, mix water or vegetable stock, soy sauce, and oil. I prefer to use water since the vegetable stock makes the gluten too salty for my taste.
3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients evenly, and stir together making the ball of gluten. Knead for a few minutes. Dab any excess moisture from the gluten with a paper towel if you want to.
4. Form the gluten into a cylindrical shape. Press down and with a sharp knife, cut the gluten into thin strips. Oil a cookie sheet, and place the strips on the cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, then flip them over and bake for an additional 3-5 minutes.
Enjoy your yummy seitan strips! You can eat them with ketchup, barbecue sauce, or any other vegan condiment if you like. I prefer to eat mine with ketchup.
Source of recipe: I tried some of the seitan recipes found on this website, but wasn't satisfied. So I combined a few, and this is what I came up with.
