As 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.
This 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!
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!
These 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?!?)
This is a new version of my original vegan prime rib(less) roast made from washing flour. I subbed out fresh beetroot for powder to yield a firmer texture, as well as added more beefy flavoring to the mix. Still fancy enough for your holiday table, but easy enough to be enjoyed more often.
This is a slight variation to my first washed flour turkey recipe. I left out the mushrooms, started with a little more flour for a larger yield, and slightly adjusted the amount of seasonings and tofu. I really twisted the dough when knotting this one and wrapped in a cheesecloth to keep it from expanding in my slow cooker. I think this improved the texture, giving it a better "meat grain," but it's still just as flavorful and juicy as the original.
This vegan paneer is the creamiest version you will ever try! It's made from the leftover wheat starch water from washing flour, blended with tofu and coconut oil, and steamed to develop an amazingly cheesy texture. You can pan-fry it and add it to any of your favorite dishes, but of course I recommend this incredible Palak Paneer!
This vegan, cajun, deli-style turkey gets simmered in a slow cooker in a delicious broth, then roasted to develop the crust. The chicken-style bouillon and extra swirls of cajun seasoning throughout really pack in the flavor!

This vegan provolone cheese is buttery, tangy, and a little bit smoky. It's made with the leftover wheat starch water from washing flour to make seitan. Perfect for your next charcuterie board or sliced thin for sandwiches, the texture will impress even the hardcore cheeseaholics!
If you're looking for a flavorful, yet simple recipe for beef from washed flour, look no further! No need to worry about achieving the perfect oven temperature, frying or making a broth, because this seitan is cooked by wrapping and steaming. It slices up perfectly for sandwiches, or you can make thicker cutlets and fry them up for a quick steak-style seitan, too!
This vegan pepper jack cheese made with leftover wheat starch water from washing flour to make seitan gets its creaminess from cashews and packs plenty of heat. It's a hard cheese perfect for your next charcuterie board, sliced thin for sandwiches, or grated onto just about anything when you're looking to add a little kick.
If you're looking for a flavorful, yet simple recipe for ham from washed flour, look no further! No need to worry about achieving the perfect oven temperature, frying or making a broth, because this seitan is cooked by wrapping and steaming. Slices up perfectly for sandwiches, too!
This vegan white cheddar cheese made with leftover wheat starch water from washing flour to make seitan gets its creaminess from cashews and cheddar flavor from a combination of nutritional yeast and the brine from a jar of olives. It's a hard cheese perfect for your next charcuterie board, but can also be sliced thin for sandwiches or grated onto just about anything for flavor.
Turn your leftover wheat starch from flour-washing into delicious vegan crepes! With the additions of JUST Egg (or your favorite egg replacer), plant milk and butter, plus a little extra flour, these skinny pancakes make a great breakfast. Omit the sugar and stuff with your favorite savory fillings for a tasty meal anytime. Yields about 8 crepes.
This vegan mild cheddar made with leftover wheat starch water gets some umami from mushroom powder and Worcestershire. It's a hard cheese perfect for your next charcuterie board, but can also be sliced thin for sandwiches or grated onto just about anything for flavor. The wheat starch does not get as stretchy as tapioca or potato starch, so while this will soften it won't exactly "melt."
What could be easier than throwing everything into your slow cooker? I love to simmer like this for the best shreds, and it works awesome for cutlets or a roast, too. You can always add more seasoning to the dough, (especially if roasting) but this amount leaves the seitan "open" to be used as you would chicken in lots of dishes. Hang on to that broth cause it makes an amazing soup base or gravy!

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.

Looking for a new twist on vegan roast turkey? Try making it from washed flour! The texture is spot-on, the flavor is impeccable (without a hint of that gluteny taste), and it's so juicy you don't even need gravy... though I'm not skipping it lol. The addition of the skin thanks to YdaJun's Plant-Based Kitchen's recipe really sets this over the top.
