It's easy to turn homemade seitan into delicious jerky - just use your dehydrator and a yummy marinade It's easy to turn homemade seitan into delicious jerky - just use your dehydrator and a yummy marinade

    Your favorite seitan recipe seitan (1 lb)
    Marinade of your choice (I used Annie's Organic Teriyaki)
    (it took me about a half cup to cover my seitan bits)


Make seitan per your directions or use your favorite store bought brand. I use a quick seitan recipe I got from How it All Vegan, I believe. I omitted the spices except for the onion, garlic and nutritional yeast, since I wanted a more basic, bland starting point. Let that marinade shine!

Cut the seitan into very thin pieces with a serrated knife. My pieces are .25˝ tops. Dip seitan slices into your marinade, use a brush to evenly coat. Don't go too heavy, a bit is fine and makes a lovely glaze.

Place in single layer on each level of your dehydrator, keeping the pieces separate. Turn your dehydrator on and sit back and wait. I let mine go a biiiit too long so my jerky is a bit crunchier than I'd like. It took less than four hours for mine to get totally dried. In the future, I'll babysit it a bit better so I can stop once I hit the chewy stage.

When your jerky gets to the desired texture, remove from the dehydrator. Store covered, room temp.

About a pound of seitan made enough jerky to have ten good sized servings of a bit over an ounce each.

Really easy (especially with store bought seitan) and tasty way to get some protein nibbles.

    Yum! A great use for my leftover homemade seitan (Check out Viva Vegan! for two great recipes that are easy & good!). I ran out of teriyaki, so added a little soy sauce & a pinch of minced ginger & minced garlic. I also marinated the slices overnight. Not sure how long these were in my dehydrator. - 5/31/10

  • I have never cooked with seitan, but I'm intrigued by this. Have you ever tried cooking it in the oven? (I don't have a dehydrator. Boo!)
