This is a very versatile seitan and once you make it, you can freeze and use it in many dishes! You can chop it into rice, scramble it with tofu, use it to stuff turnovers, fold it into saucy pasta, cube it into potato salad, slice it into sandwiches, etc.
1 can white beans, strained
2 cups water
1/4 cup olive oil
1 Tbsp. tomato sauce
2 Tbsp. molassess (unsulphured)
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. All Purpose Adobo Goya (you can get it in well-stocked supermarkets,
otherwise use the following: 1 tsp. sweet paprika powder, 1/2 tsp. sweet basil powder, 1/4 tsp. sage, 1/4 tsp. oregano, 1/4 tsp. turmeric, 1 tsp. garlic powder)
2 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. fennel seed powder
1 tsp. coriander seed powder
1 tsp. seed powder
2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbsp. wheat germ
2 Tbsp. soy flour
1 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
3/4 cup vital gluten
Note 1: This recipe calls for nutritional yeast, this is not baking yeast!
Some people substitute nutritonal yeast for brewer's yeast, another yeast that
can be obtained at health fuood or specialty stores, but I have never tried it, so I cannot tell you the results. Nutritional yeast adds very good flavor!
In a blender, process together the beans and the water until they are completely smooth. Scrape into a bowl. Add all the other ingredients and mix thoroughly, avoiding lumps and form into a soft dough. Grease 4 cans or a good size loaf pan, put the mixture in it. Put water into your steamer and
Note 2: Do not have a steamer? You can improvise your own as follows:
Get a large pot with a cover, and a smaller pot without a handle. Place smaller pot facing down into the large pot, fill larger pot with water up to the edge of the bottom of the smaller pot that is lying upside down. Place your 4 cans or your loaf pan on top of this uposide down pot, making sure it will not tip over. Cover, leaving a crack open so excess steam will escape. Make water boil and you've got a steamer!
Here you have it, a tasty, economical seitan that is just as versatile as a ready-made and more expensive one!
