Basic Seitan - Wheat Meat (Vegan Meat Substitute)

Basic Seitan - Wheat Meat (Vegan Meat Substitute)
  • Dough:
  • 1 cup vital wheat gluten
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup liquid amino acid (such as Bragg®)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • Cooking Broth:
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/4 cup tamari


  1. Stir vital wheat gluten, nutritional yeast, 1/2 cup vegetable broth, liquid amino acid, olive oil, and garlic in a bowl until ingredients come together into a ball. Knead ball until dough has a rubbery texture. Divide dough into 3 equal pieces and shape into 1/2-inch thick patties.
  2. Bring 4 cups vegetable broth, water, and tamari to a boil in a large pot. Carefully place patties into boiling broth; cover pot and return to a boil. Set lid slightly askew to vent steam and reduce heat to low. Continue simmering patties until firm, turning patties occasionally, about 1 hour. Remove pot from heat and set lid aside. Allow patties to cool in broth for 15 minutes before serving.
