Baked Seitan for Sweet and Sour Orange Sauce From The Sweet and Sour Orange Sauce is a separate recipe. Baked Seitan for Sweet and Sour Orange Sauce From The Sweet and Sour Orange Sauce is a separate recipe.
Number of Servings: 4


    1 cup vital wheat gluten
    2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    3/4 cup water
    2 tablespoons peanut butter
    1 teaspoon sesame oil
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1 teaspoon minced garlic
    1 teaspoon ginger paste or minced ginger


Preheat the oven to 350 and lightly spray an 8x8 baking dish with canola oil. Mix the first 3 ingredients together in a large bowl. Mix the water with the peanut butter, sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger and add it to the dry ingredients. Stir to mix well and then knead lightly for a couple of minutes.

Put the dough into the baking dish and flatten it so that it evenly fills the pan. Take a sharp knife and cut it into 8 strips; then turn the pan and cut those strips in half to form 16 pieces.

Put it in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. While it's baking, prepare the sauce you want to use. After 20 minutes, pour half of the sauce over the top of the seitan, spreading it to cover completely, and return the seitan to the oven. Cook for 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven and cut apart to serve.

  • This was a really simple recipe, tasty enough; however, we prefer the Seitan BBG Riblet recipe better (which is very similar) but uses cashew butter instead of peanut butter and doesn't use sesame oil or ginger (which we are not huge fans of). - 1/23/11

  • Liked it but I think I kneaded it a little to much. - 10/5/08
