Seitan Recipes and Tips

Roasted Seitan with Peppers and Mushrooms

If you’re looking for seitan recipes, you’ve come to the right place! This high-protein meat substitute made of wheat gluten is quite versatile. A traditional Asian food, you may have encountered seitan in dishes like “Buddhist’s Delight” in Chinese restaurants. Dense, chewy seitan is pure gluten, so clearly, it’s not for anyone with gluten sensitivity. 

Store-bought seitan usually comes in 8-ounce packages or 16-ounce tubs. Its “meaty” texture lends itself to numerous preparations. It’s great as a substitute for beef chunks in stews, stir-fries, salads, wraps, and for fajitas and kebabs.

Explore seitan recipe if you’re looking for ways to add more protein to your family’s diet other than, or in addition to, soy foods.

Making homemade seitan is not too difficult or time-consuming in terms of hands-on time, though you do need to allow time for the various steps and cooking time. If you’re so inclined, the recipe below yields greater quantity and economy than store-bought.

Still, if you’d rather buy your seitan ready-made, natural foods stores and co-ops usually offer several options, from locally made to national brands. Try a few and see which you like best, as they are all a bit different in flavor and texture.

    I bought a national brand of seitan chunks in a soy “broth”. It has a chemical taste. Are there commercial brands that are neutral in taste?

    Making gluten at home is not difficult. Take two cups of wheat flour in a dish and make a dough with water. Wash the dough in water while kneading. All the starch will be washed out and you will get gluten minimum of 6% from whole grain flour
