home > recipes > vegetables > crock-pot simple seitan
1 box, 10 oz vital wheat gluten 1 to 1/4 cups cup broth or water or as needed 1 tsp salt 1 tsp garlic powder 1 Tbs soy sauce 4 to 5 cups vegetable broth, mushroom broth, mock chicken broth etc. I have also learned to become a vegan 'maven' , baking and cooking delicious vegan. Wheat gluten intrigued me. I did not care for the kind in boxes or frozen ,found in health food stores and decided to try my own at it. I got ideas off the Net, everything from baking, steaming, pressure cooking the wheat gluten. Wheat gluten is totally bland with a somewhat chewy, firm texture. When doctored up it can become a delicious alternative to meat. This easy recipe is a great way to be introduced to a simple seitan and it's uses. In a large bowl, place the vital wheat gluten, add seasonings to the water or broth and add enough liquid to gluten stirring vigorously with a spoon. It should come together as a spongy mass, an unusual texture coming from a dry product!. Knead briefly and shape into a oval. With a sharp knife cut into 4 sections ( or keep whole like a roast ) . Place in crock-pot and cover with liquid of choice. Cook on high about 4 to 5 hours or somewhat longer on low setting. The seitan will absorb some of the liquid and have a texture like a very firm matzoh ball. Remove seitan from liquid with slotted spoon. Cool slightly and slice thin with a sharp knife. At this point, it can be frozen or refrigerated. Save the liquid in the crock-pot for soup etc if you wish. Using seitan: coat slices with barbecue sauce and serve on rolls, use slices in a vegetarian stew, chop seitan coarsely and with vegan mayo , onions, celery make a mock chicken salad, use seitan in stir frys etc. Marinate slices in various sauces, grill pieces etc. etc. With experimenting with cooking methods, one can produce the texture of the seitan one likes best. So far this crock pot method is the one I currently enjoy.

Wheat gluten intrigued me. I did not care for the kind in boxes or frozen ,found in health food stores and decided to try my own at it. I got ideas off the Net, everything from baking, steaming, pressure cooking the wheat gluten. Wheat gluten is totally bland with a somewhat chewy, firm texture.

This easy recipe is a great way to be introduced to a
simple seitan and it's uses.

In a large bowl, place the vital
wheat gluten, add seasonings to the water or broth and add enough liquid to gluten stirring vigorously with a spoon. It should come together as a spongy mass, an unusual texture coming from a dry product!. Knead briefly and shape into a oval. With a sharp knife cut into 4 sections ( or keep whole like a roast ) . Place in crock-pot and cover with liquid of choice. Cook on high about 4 to 5 hours or somewhat longer on low setting.

The
seitan will absorb some of the liquid and have a texture like a very firm matzoh ball. Remove seitan from liquid with slotted spoon. Cool slightly and slice
thin with a sharp knife. At this point, it can be frozen or refrigerated. Save the liquid in the crock-pot for soup etc if you wish.

Using
seitan: coat slices with barbecue
sauce and serve on rolls, use slices in a vegetarian stew, chop seitan coarsely and with vegan mayo , onions, celery make a mock chicken salad, use seitan in stir frys etc. Marinate slices in various sauces, grill pieces etc. etc.

With experimenting with cooking methods, one can produce the
texture of the seitan one likes best. So far this crock
pot method is the one I currently enjoy.
