Seitan O' Greatness - modified

Submitted by: TAMRACLOVEC

Introduction

I have modified this Seitan O' Greatness to taste more like chicken or beef. The basic ingredients remain the same. This modification is NOT vegetarian because of the bouillon.

Ingredients

    Basic Dry Ingredients:
    1.5 cups vital wheat gluten
    1/4 cup nutritional yeast
    1 tsp salt
    1-2 tsp pepper (I use 2 tsp)
    2 tsp garlic powder
    Basic Wet Ingredients:
    3/4 cups water
    4 tbsp tomato paste
    2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

    FOR BEEF ADD:
    TO DRY:
    2 tsp paprika
    1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (you can use 1/8 tsp if you like
    it less spicy)
    1/8 tsp allspice
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    1/4 tsp cumin
    4 teaspoons beef bouillon powder
    TO WET:
    2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
    1 tbsp tamari

    FOR CHICKEN ADD:
    TO DRY:
    2 tsp dried parsley
    2 tsp dried sage
    4 tsp chicken bouillon powder
    TO WET:
    2 tsp minced garlic
    2 tbsp Mrs Dash garlic/herb marinade
    1 tbsp lemon juice

Directions

I weighed my final log and got 22 ounces. I've made this into 1oz servings for easy recipe calculating.

Preheat oven to 325.

In a large mixing bowl mix dry ingredients. Mix the rest of the ingredients (liquid ingredients) in a smaller mixing bowl. Whisk well until mixed.

Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix well, then knead for a minute or two.. it doesn't need long.

Form into a log (6-8" long), wrap tightly in foil, twisting ends. Bake for 90 minutes. When done baking, unwrap and leave out to cool all the way. Then wrap it foil or plastic and refrigerate. Slice to use as desired.

Serving Size: Makes a 22oz log (final weight) - 22 1oz servings
