Steamed Seitan

  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons vital wheat gluten
  • 1/4 cup garbanzo bean flour
  • 2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoon tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil

The Rest of this Great Sandwich:

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup onion - yellow, diced very small
  • 2 cloves garlic, small - or 1 large
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 8 ounces tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • seitan, from above recipe - steamed, recipe above
  • 2 buns
  • cabbage slaw - topping


Steamed Seitan

  • Add the first 4 ingredients to a large bowl.
  • Mix the next five ingredients to a small bowl and mix well.
  • Pour the liquid into the dry ingredients and mix. Knead for 5 minutes or until desired elasticity.
  • It is a wet mixture but keep kneading and it will come together even more and become elastic.  Roll into two logs.
  • Add three to four cups water in a steamer saucepan. Bring to a boil. 
  • Place the steamer basket inside the pan and turn down the heat to low. Add seitan logs to the steamer basket and cover.  
  • Steam for 40 minutes.  Check the water level once in a while to make sure it isn't boiling away.  If so, add more boiling water.
  • Slice the required measurement of seitan very thin, lengthwise and set aside.
  • Let any extra seitan cool and store in the refrigerator.  It freezes perfectly so freeze any leftovers.

The Rest of the Recipe:

  • Add oil to a large skillet and heat to medium high.
  • Add the next 8 ingredients, stir and cook 5 minutes.
  • Add tomato sauce, ketchup, water and maple syrup.
  • Cook for 10 minutes.
  • Add seitan and cook 5 more minutes.
  • Serve on buns with cabbage slaw topping.
