Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 60 mins

Total cook time: 75 mins

Serves: 6-8 hungry people 

 

Ingredients

 

  • 2 cup vital wheat gluten 

  • 2 Tbsp. All Purpose Flour

  • 1/4 Cup Nutritional Yeast

  • 1 1/2 Cup filtered water

  • 1/2 Cup liquid amino acid (soy sauce replacer) 

  • 2 Chopped Cloves

  • 1Tbsp. Tomato Paste

  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil

  • 1 lemon zest (Finely Zest)

 

Stock Ingredients

 

  • 10 cups of filtered water 

  • 1/3 cup of Amino Acids

 

 

Instruction

 

  1. Add vital wheat gluten, Nutritional Yeast and Flour to an automatic mixer or mixing bowl, Mix until completely blended.

  2. In a separate bowl, hand mixes all other ingredients until blended well. 

  3. Then add the wet ingredients to the dry and set mixer on low for 5 minutes or hand mix until a thick ball is created. 

 

NOW, THIS IS WHEN YOU NEED TO BE CAREFUL!

 

  1. Boil the Stock and before you add in the Seitan the stock MUST NOT be bowling,

  2. Put the temperature on a low simmer and WAIT until it has stopped bowling before adding the Seitan to avoid evaporation of the liquid, giving your Seitan an unwanted spongy texture. 

  3. After slicing the Seitan into 6 even slices and placing in the NON-bowling stock put the lid on and walk away for 1 hour. 

 

THIS PART IS ALSO VERY CRUCIAL

 

  1. THE STOCK MUST BE COMPLETELY COOLED DOWN BEFORE THE SEITAN CAN BE REMOVED.

  2. (Add ice if you are in a hurry, but do NOT remove it when the stock is still hot.  

 

Storage

 

Store inside the broth juice, in a lidded container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks
