Vegan Seitan Mock “Meat”

Vegan Seitan Mock “Meat”

Since eating plant-based I have become more creative with my meals. I actually challenge myself  every now and then when I feel like I’m not making a variety of vegan recipes —I try to prepare something I wouldn’t normally eat.

With my creativity comes a group of boys {my monsters} and Men {ahem Hubbz} that become my taste testers. Majority of the time they enjoy their food. I always remind myself that everyone might not like everything about every meal, but if they attempting to consume it or taste it than they are supportive of you and your lifestyle. So I’d have to give them the credit they deserve. Good or bad that is!

Try this cruelty-free Mock “Meat” that can be used with any dish of choice.

Pair this Seitan Mock “Meat” with my
Vegan Creamy Tzatziki Sauce and my Vegan Greek Inspired Seitan Gyros

Vegan Greek Roasted “Lamb” with Herbed Vegetables


First preheat the oven to 400F.

Preparing the Dry Ingredients 

Start by making the Dry ingredients first. Add the vital wheat gluten, nutritional yeast, onion and garlic powder, dried basil and dried oregano, sea salt and ground black pepper, into a mixing bowl. Whisk ingredients well.

Preparing the Wet Ingredients

Then, add the dry ingredients mix into a food processor, with minced onion and garlic, tahini, ketchup, and liquid aminos. Process just long enough for it to look like ground “Meat”.

Once you get a doughy texture. Remove the Seitan dough from the processor and lay out a large piece of foil {normally I wouldn’t recommend using foil because of the high temperatures, but I need to get a new loaf pan because Hubbz burnt it making dessert. At least he tried!}. Using a spatula push the sides together and form a rectangular block. Fold the foil over and using the spatula firmly push the dough together and fold all angles of the foil.

Bake in the oven for 1 hour.

Once fully baked remove the Seitan from the oven and set it aside to cool. Slice the baked Seitan block into strips.

If using in a sandwich add a few Seitan strips to a hot skillet and spray with coconut oil. Cook for 3-4 minutes each side until just browned.

Serve with sandwich or wrap and assemble to your liking. I used this recipe for my Vegan Seitan Gyros and it was perfect!
