This gluten-free seitan roast is a great vegan meat substitute for anyone transitioning to a plant based diet, or for anyone that has been vegan for years and is just looking for something tasty to eat. Traditional seitan uses vital wheat gluten for a hearty and protein rich meat substitute, but this version relies on gluten-free flours and beans to create an alternative for those trying to keep gluten out of their diets.
