Cooking Time



To Make the Seitan:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 cups vital wheat gluten
  • 1/4 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • ½ teaspoon ground dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon marjoram
  • ½ teaspoon dried rosemary

To Make the Broth:

  • 4 cups water
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce


  1. Whisk olive oil and vegetable broth together; add dry ingredients. Stir until you have a tacky dough ball.
  2. Remove dough and knead thoroughly, then let rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Add broth ingredients to stockpot and stir thoroughly. Bring just to a rolling boil and lower heat to a simmer.
  4. Make three separate loaves out of dough and add to stockpot, covering it partially. Let cook for 55 minutes to one hour, stirring occasionally. Seitan will expand slightly.
  5. Drain seitan and let rest for 20 minutes before serving.

  1. I made this over the weekend. It turned out good, but tasted a little too salty in my Asian stir fry dish. I will definitely make it again, but might adjust the salt if using it in a dish with a salty sauce.
