Citrus Grilled Seitan Sandwiches

What you need: 

1 cup vital wheat gluten
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 cup water
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
1/2 tablespoon tomato paste or ketchup
1 tablespoon tahini paste
4 to 5 cloves garlic, minced
1 lemon, zested and juiced
2 to 3 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 sprig fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1 tablespoon agave
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper
1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise
1 chipotle in adobo
Ciabatta bread
Thinly sliced onion
Fresh oregano
Arugula leaves

What you do: 

1) To prepare the seitan, preheat an oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly oil a large cookie sheet and set aside.
2) Combine the wheat gluten and nutritional yeast. Whisk together the water, liquid smoke, tomato paste and tahini and pour into the dry mixture. With your hands, mix together until a ball forms. It will be wet. Knead for a minute or so. Tear nugget-sized pieces of the dough off, flatten and place onto the cookie sheet. Bake 15 minutes, flipping halfway through. Remove from the oven.
3) To make the marinade, combine all of the ingredients for the marinade in a zip lock bag, including the lemon that has been zested and juiced. Toss the baked seitan in the bag and squish it around. Allow the seitan to marinate for at least eight hours, preferably overnight or even for a couple of days. It will only become more flavorful as it sits.
4) Preheat the grill to medium heat. Skewer the seitan pieces and drizzle with some more olive oil to prevent sticking. Grill skewers on each side for a couple of minutes, keeping a close eye on them to make sure they do not burn. Eat as is or make into sandwiches.
To prepare the Chipotle mayo and Sandwich:
1) Combine the vegan mayonnaise and one chipotle pepper in a food processor and blend. Add more adobo sauce from the can for more heat. Assemble the sandwiches on ciabatta bread with the chipotle mayo, thinly sliced onion, fresh oregano, arugula leaves and seitan.

What is liquid smoke?

And this looks really good~

Liquid smoke can be found in the condiment aisle by the bbq sauces, pickles, etc. It gives food a grilled, smoky and (in my opinion) sort of a meaty flavor. It is made from the condensation(?) of smoked wood chips.

This is the first time I've made seitan without boiling it forever and forgetting about it 3 times...I never even knew this was an option! Thanks for the idea

So I made this and let it marinate overnight, then pan-fried it. I have to say I felt like the time spent marinating was a waste because it did nothing for the flavor and just made the seitan too wet.

It was edible in a sandwich, but soggy and tasted like wheat. Nothing to get excited about.

I will definitely experiment with this again, though. I think next time I will skip marinating it and just add whatever flavor I want it to have right to the wet ingredients for the dough. I also think this would be good brushed with a thick sauce or glaze, or something flavorful that will stick to it better.

YUM! This looks awesome.  I always feel like Seitan has a somewhat odd taste that i kind of like and kind of feel strange about, but I bet it's great like this.  i am going to try this soon, as i'm trying to eat more foods that have natural probiotics.
