Looking for the best seitan recipes or ways to make seitan at home? Whether you’re vegan or you’re looking for some meat-free meals, here is a list of my favourite seitan vegan meat recipes! This list of seitan ideas will help you make vegan alternatives for classic chicken, beef or pork recipes!
Best Seitan Recipes
Some classics that I think every plant-based cook needs to be comfortable making are simple seitan doughs! It can be tricky to learn but once you get it, you’ll be a pro!
Tips For Making Seitan:
- Buy vital wheat gluten (seitan flour) in bulk to reduce cost and waste.
- For a more tender texture, knead less. For more fibrous texture, knead more.
- You can boil, bake (in liquid or wrapped tin foil) or steam seitan to cook it.
