I’ve got your back for the next special occasion/celebration/holiday. Surprise any meat lover with this delicious vegan roast! This roast is protein-packed, moist, savory and surprisingly “meaty”.
I know seitan recipes can seem a bit intimidating but I promise this one is super duper easy. The prep work and actual labor only takes about 25 minutes. You also probably already have most of these ingredients in your pantry! You can also find helpful links below to the two less common ingredients; liquid smoke and vital wheat gluten.
Some highlights of this recipe:
Soy-free and protein-packed
Easy to follow method
Perfect for holidays and celebrations
Tips & Substitutes:
Vital Wheat Gluten should not be substituted. Click here to check out my favorite one to buy!
Chickpeas with cannellini, great northern and Peruvian beans
Walnuts with pecans or 1/4 cup avocado/olive oil.
Apple Cider Vinegar with lemon juice.
Soy sauce with tamari.
Maple syrup with brown sugar.
I highly recommend making this the day before eating it. The texture improves significantly overnight and gets even more “meaty”. If you plan to offer this to a meat eater, make it the day before!
Add gravy or one of your favorite sauces to make it even tastier. In the photo above I added some homemade bbq sauce.
Equipment needed for this recipe:
Twine or Floss
