Recipes from Washed Flour

Scroll down to find some recipes for the leftover starch water here, too. (More coming soon!) If you’ve never washed flour before, check out the step-by-step guide and video tutorial here:
Wash the Flour (WTF) Method
Vegan Prosciutto | Washed Flour SeitanBy JenThis vegan seitan prosciutto is just like I remember the real thing. It's salty, savory, and even a little bit funky. It's simple, yet elegant enough for your next charcuterie, or wrapped around your favorite fruits or veggies.
Washed Flour ChickenBy JenWhat 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!
Washed Flour Corned BeefBy JenMake this vegan corned beef from washed flour using the broth twice. Once to cook your seitan, and again for the vegetables.
Washed Flour Pulled PorkBy JenMaking these vegan pulled pork shreds from washed flour is by far the closest texture to the real thing. Slow cook in an easy, flavorful broth and finish on a grill, under a broiler, or shred it and eat it right out of the pot!
Washed Flour Roast BeefBy JenThis 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.
Vegan Prime Rib(less) from Washed FlourBy JenThis vegan prime rib(less) roast made from washing flour has an amazing meaty texture and beefy flavor. It's fancy enough for your holiday table, but easy enough to be enjoyed more often.
Washed Flour Roast TurkeeBy JenLooking 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.

Starch Water Recipes

Starch Water Mild Cheddar CheeseBy JenThis 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."
Sauce Stache’s Vegan Pork BellyBy JenAnother amazing recipe from Sauce Stache, this vegan pork belly is an awesome and easy way to use up that starch water. And if you haven't heard of Sauce Stache yet, head directly over to his YouTube channel and hit the subscribe button. You won't be disappointed!
Starch Water TortillasBy JenTaco Tuesdays just got better! This simple tortilla recipe helps use up some of that starch water you might have hanging around, and it's perfect for when you're already making shreds.
Starch Water BaconBy JenThis vegan bacon is made from the starch water that remains from washing flour to make seitan. It's super simple to make, and despite my love for bacon made from vital wheat gluten, this the closest to the real thing as I've ever come.
