Vegan GYRO Seitan Meat / WTF methodBy bigassveganAs a vegan, I've eaten some pretty good gyros over the years, but, trust me, nothing comes even close to this one!
I promise, if you make it, you will become a gyro snob, just like I am now. Vegan Steak | Washed Flour SeitanBy JenThis is the best steak texture I've ever achieved and it came out of several tests with varying ingredients and cooking methods. Though there are a couple unique ingredients, the good news is you should be able to source them online, and you'll get a lot of use out of them if you like to make a lot of beefy-style seitan! Chimichurri SauceBy JenChimichurri sauce is one of my favorite condiments for bringing a little heat and adding tons of flavor to just about any dish, but of course especially seitan! Try using it as both a marinade (after the first cook) and a topping for the ultimate vegan steaks! Seitan Steaks | Samantha Moody ValenciaBy JenWant a simple steak made with vital wheat gluten that's full of flavor? Check out this recipe from Samantha Moody Valencia, as it was originally shared in the Seitan Appreciation Society Facebook group. Montreal style smoked meatBy bigassveganMake it once, and it will become your quintessential sandwich meat.
This Washed Flour Seitan is meaty, smoky, flavorful beyond belief, and a perfect vegan dish to impress and shut up all the vegan naysayers in your life.
Vegan Porq BrisketBy bigassveganSeitan on steroids?
Vegans and omnivores alike can't believe this is seitan... but IT IS. And, like most homemade seitans, it is inexpensive and good for you (well, unless you are gluten intolerant 😣). Most of the ingredients you probably already have, and those you do not, I highly urge you to get, as they will up your seitan game, and you will use them onward and often, for sure!
The visual of this Vegan Pork Brisket is everything and is for sure to be a show stopper on any mezze plate.
It is unbelievable in various appetizers, puff pastries, in sandwiches, pasta dishes, etc. Vegan hard boiled EGGBy bigassveganNo one would ever know. How would they know?
Try out these vegan hard-boiled eggs, yourself, and on your friends, and see them in disbelief. Can even tell them it's the 2022 Met Gala (for real, vegan boiled eggs were served!), and get fancy with it! Get jiggy with it!
Use them for your deviled egg needs, add in seitan sandwiches, on maze plates... endless possibilities.Shish-Kabob and PastramiBy bigassveganThis one recipe yields both a middle-eastern beef shish-kabob seitan AND a pastrami seitan (see instructions on how to finalize).
It is completely up to you if you want to make it just be kabobs, just the pastrami, or both. The taste is there to serve both needs and depending on how you slice or finalize it, it will become two different and unique mock meats.
In the notes, I also included the recipe for the traditional crispy Serbian cornbread, because this goes with it like you won't believe. Prosciutto deli slicesBy bigassveganSo happy with this Italian Prosciutto Crudo!
It’s perfectly chewy, salty, with just a hint of sweetness, savory, very meaty... and perfectly captures that unsmoked, uncooked, dry-cured prosciutto taste we all know and love.
The two different reds up it visually, and the washed flour “fatty” parts perfectly capture the chewier texture and elasticity of fat, giving it a different feel when eaten. It’s freakishly realistic and it may freak/gross out some people (It completely did me! 🙈).
This recipe incorporates VWG and a little WTF.
Both are very novice-friendly, and good ways to get into these two ways of seitan making, while also creating something amazing along the way. I highly recommend it!Serbian Pork SausageBy bigassveganThis is a typical Serbian homemade sausage aka domaća kobasica. It resembles pepperoni a bit, but is milder, has more onions and isn’t as oily. It’s similar to Polish kielbasa, Slovenian kobasa, Turkish soujouk, and Greek loukaniko.
It’s nothing like Italian sausages.
It’s dry and firm, and meant to go on a grill or be pan-fried, not eaten raw. This way, they soften a bit on the inside and crisp up on the outside.
In Serbia, the sausages are most often paired with fried eggs (recipe also included in the notes!), egg scrambles with feta, with baked beans, and they are a must during any decent grilling event. Southern parts of the country make them spicier, and northern milder. This recipe is right down the middle.
PepperoniBy bigassveganThis is it!
This pepperoni has the firmness, the bite, the spiciness, and the texture of its non-vegan counterpart, and no one would ever know them apart. Made in the larger-than-life NYC pizza slice style, it satisfies all the cravings, having you come back for more.Pig Saver Ham 2.0 | Krazy Asian Meats Vegetation | Washed Flour SeitanBy JenThis Pig Saver Ham recipe from washed flour uses vegan butter and leftover starch water to create pockets of fat around the seitan dough. The resulting texture will blow your mind!The Creamiest Vegan Cheesecake | Wheat Starch WaterBy JenThis vegan cheesecake is the super-creamy type. In fact, it's so creamy you may be amazed it can stand up at all. Thanks to the leftover wheat starch from washing seitan, it does! Vegan Shepard’s PieBy JenThis Vegan Shepard's Pie starts with delicious seitan shreds from washed flour which get dusted with flour and fried, cooked with veggies in a beefy broth, and piled high with the creamiest vegan garlic mashed potatoes you will ever try! Simple Vegan Beefy Shreds | Washed Flour SeitanBy JenI set out to make a simple, versatile, deliciously-beefy and shreddy seitan. This one ticks all the boxes! Vegan Seitan Crabby PattiesBy JenI used to love ordering crab cakes when going out to eat - every restaurant seemed to have their own spin on the classic. Now I can enjoy them again, and so can you! Shreddy Vegan Seitan CrabBy JenThis crab-style seitan made with vital wheat gluten and tofu is not only super-shreddy, it's juicy, tender, and meaty all at the same time. It gets its flavor of the sea from a broth made with dried Kombu sheets and Wakame flakes. Vegan Barbecue ColeslawBy JenThere's a lot of coleslaw recipes out there, but what makes this one a little different is that it's mixed with barbecue sauce (and it's vegan, of course) making it the perfect side or topper for all your barbecue-style seitan sandwiches! Vegan Chicken Wings | Washed Flour SeitanBy JenThese vegan seitan wings get slow cooked in broth, then fried right before serving for an amazingly tasty result! I love them for game days, parties, or just about any time! (I mean, really, when are wings ever not awesome?!?)Vegan ChiliBy JenNothing says hearty like a big bowl of vegan chili! This dish is perfect for using up leftover beef-style seitan, redeeming some seitan that maybe didn't come out perfectly, or even works great with Impossible Beef or your favorite vegan crumbles. Porky PowderBy JenI've been trialing all kinds of ingredients to create a seasoning that would make a great base for seitan "pork" styles like chops and tenderloin. This one hits all the right notes for me - a little sweet, plenty savory and of course umami-packed!
