Seitan is a plant-based meat made from vital wheat gluten, but this recipe adds something unique...beans! White beans add a texture to this roast that's incomparable to anything else. The end result is a meaty, chewy roast with a crispy crust and sage and onion flavor throughout.

Sage and Onion Seitan Roast [Vegan]




  • 1 1/4 cups cannellini beans, drained and rinsed if using canned
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • A small bunch fresh sage
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and cut into a few chunks
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 1/2 cups vital wheat gluten
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Oil, for greasing


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Add the drained cannellini beans to a food processor, along with the garlic, sage, and onion. Pulse to form a chunky paste.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the bean mixture with the dried oregano, vital wheat gluten, vegetable stock, and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well to form a dough.
  4. Knead the dough for a few minutes; this will help avoid a tough seitan roast.
  5. Lightly grease a large piece of kitchen foil, and add the seitan dough. Shape to form a rough sausage, then roll tightly in the foil, and scrunch the ends.
  6. Place the foil-wrapped seitan roast on a baking tray (make sure to pick it up from underneath so you don’t tear the foil), and roast for around 1 hour and 20 minutes, until firm.
  7. Peel back the foil, and slice the seitan roast with a serrated knife. Serve warm.
