So I had to make my own seitan steaks. Because I can and I like to make my recipes :) And guess what? These "steaks" are delicious and healthier for you than the animal version will ever be. Because they're free of cholesterol, saturated fats and no animal had to die for a steak.
Yes, the steak doesn't taste exactly like a flesh one, but I would not want that! This vegan steak has a nice texture, with just the right amount of chewiness, with some yummy flavors and if you crave meat I think it's a really good substitute.
And also, it's convenient for barbecues, just for a lunch or dinner with the family or for sandwiches or wraps (just cut it into strips). And you can even batter the steaks and make an entirely new dish! Recipe to come in the future! Just stay tuned! :)
** 190 g (1.5 cups) wheat gluten
** 90 g (0.5 cup) beans
** 20 g (2 heaping tbsp) chickpea flour
** 40 g (2 tbsp) tahini
** 30 g (2 tbsp) tomato paste
** 15 g (1 tbsp) miso paste
** 170 ml (0.66 cup) water
** 1 tbsp smoky paprika
** 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
** 1/4 tbsp black pepper
** 1 tsp dill, dried
** 1 tsp chili powder
** 1 tsp basil, dried
** 1/2 tsp coriander, ground
Add the beans, tomato paste, miso, spices and water to a food processor and blend until you have a smooth and runny paste. Add the tahini, chickpea flour and wheat gluten and then process for 1 to 2 more minutes until you have a dough.
Put your dough on a clean surface and knead your seitan well for at least 5 minutes to activate the gluten.
