Seitan Recipe

Seitan is a vegan meat substitute that has been growing in popularity over the years. It is so versatile that nowadays, it is used to make vegan beef, fried chicken, ham slices, sausage, minced meat and so on. Apart from its versatility, seitan is also a great source of protein and various minerals, such as iron, selenium, calcium, phosphorus and copper.

What is seitan made from? Seitan is a product of the vital wheat gluten, which is the pure protein found in wheat flour. However, unlike wheat flour, seitan is low in carbohydrates and mostly does not contain starch. Seitan is made by hydrating this protein with a range of seasonings then cooking in a way specific to the final product desired. In our opinion, this meat substitute is more similar to both the appearance and texture of meat.

Without further ado, here’s one of our delicious seitan recipes!

Bon Appetit!

Penne Béchamel

Penne Béchamel is a delicious dish to unwind at dinner time with. This dish was inspired by the Egyptian Macaroni Béchamel. It consists of a seitan mince, a cheesy flavoursome béchamel sauce and penne pasta!

Seitan is a great protein source for vegans packed with protein, iron and a range of other nutrients. We will give a more in-depth description of it in the near future, with recipes included, as it is an ingredient we have been experimenting with for a few weeks.

We purchased our Vital Wheat Gluten (to make the seitan) from BuyWholefoodsOnline. The quality of their vital wheat gluten is great. However, their prices are lower than all other brands we’ve seen (even on Amazon). We will suggest purchasing it directly from them (using the link above) than from their Amazon store as, for some reason, it’s £2-3 more expensive on there. From their website, the price starts at £2.38 for a 500g bag and goes all the way up to a 25kg bag (we don’t think you’ll ever need that much). We purchased a 1kg bag costing £4.28. For a single person, this bag should last for about a month.*

Without further ado, here’s the recipe to our Penne Béchamel!

Guten Appetit!
