* PREHEAT OVEN TO 350 F*
1 cup Vital Wheat Gluten
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 cup cold veggie broth (this is where you can put your FLAVOUR. Simmer it with spices, herbs, veg whatever and let cool)
1/4 cup soy sauce (this makes a darker seitan, if you want a lighter coloured one, put less and sub H2O for rest, or Braggs)
1 tbsp EVOO
2 cloves garlic- minced very finely
— Mix what gluten and yeast together in one bowl
— In another bowl mix all wet ingredients and add garlic
— Pour WET into DRY and mix fast with a fork till a ball forms
— Knead in the bowl for approx 3 minutes. Too much kneading will result in too tough a product.
— Roll out your dough into a log; remember it’s VERY elastic so this part may be challenging but keep at it because it IS possible….
— Wrap super tight in a some tinfoil and twist the ends tightly, forming a nice tight shiny log
— Put in oven for about 90 minutes.
— Once time is up remove from foil and let cool. Then saute up and use in your fave recipes!
