This 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!
The addition of black garlic and Guinness, along with porcini mushrooms give this burger an earthy *meat* flavour. The addition of TVP gives the burgers a meaty texture. Black garlic is easy to make from fresh garlic bulbs. The easiest and less odorous way I've found is to pop them into roasting bags and put them into your slow cooker on a yogurt heating. It takes over a week, but it's much cheaper than buying them already made.
Make this vegan corned beef from washed flour using the broth twice. Once to cook your seitan, and again for the vegetables.
This vegan beaf made from washing flour is tender and juicy. After simmering, you can slice it cold for sandwiches, cut into shreds and fry them up for hot sandwiches, or coat with some salt, pepper, and a garlic-herb infused vegan butter and roast. The simmering liquid makes an amazing gravy or jus which can be thickened with a little bit of leftover starch water.
Nothing says comfort like a big bowl of hearty beef(less) stew. This recipe is really like two recipes in one - flavorful seitan chunks for any beefy dish, and a stew recipe that utilizes them perfectly. Plus you can easily freeze leftovers! Just set aside time to allow the seitan to rest for several hours or overnight in the fridge before making the stew.
