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.

  1. Hi there! I was just wondering if the flours you have used do something specific, or whether I could substitute them – I have generic gluten free, teff and arrowroot flour in my cupboard at the moment ;-) Looking for a Christmas roast vegan/GF recipe and this looks great!

  2. Hi there! I am looking for a gluten/dairy free vegetarian roast recipe to try for Christmas Day and came across yours :-) I was just wondering if you had any idea how it would go if I substituted other flours instead of brown rice and chickpea – I have black bean, teff, arrowroot and generic gluten free flour in my cupboard at the moment. Just wondering if the flours you used do something specific or whether a substitute would be okay :-)
