Baked Seitan (Best meaty texture ever!)

What you need: 

2 cups wheat gluten
1 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 ½ teaspoons sage
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1/2 cup water
¼ cup ketchup
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil

What you do: 

1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

2) Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl with a fork. In a second bowl, combine wet ingredients and mix well.

3) Slowly add the wet mix to the dry mix, stirring to combine into a dough. Turn dough out onto the counter and knead for several minutes.

4) Shape dough into a tube and wrap in aluminum foil. Bake for 90 minutes directly on the oven rack, turning once halfway though baking. Let cool and enjoy!

Hi...I made this seitan a couple of days ago and it is wonderful.  My question is this...when I put it together it was more like a batter than a this the way it is supposed to be?  I didn't think it would knead properly like this so I added some chickpea flour, 1T at a time (took about 1/2 cup) until it reached dough consistency and then continued from turned out delicious an looks quite similar to your picture so what do you think?  Thanks so much!

BLOWING MY MIND!!! i didn't put the cumin (didn't have ground) but used all the other ingredients as listed. i baked this in a covered dish instead of wrapping it in foil and i think that made it EVEN BETTER. has a crispy little crust that is just to die for. i put it in a greased loaf pan with a lid. my young son, who is rather choosy and won't eat any 'fake meat' (or real meat!) tasted this and LOVED IT! asked for more!! i recommend it highly but do as i did and skip the foil. bake in a covered dish so it gets the crust!



I made an account just to comment on this recipe. It came out AWESOME! I ommited the ketchup and even my picky 2 year old loved it. Thanks for posting!
