Sure, you can buy vegan bacon in the supermarket - but does it come with the sweet taste of success? I think not. Learn how to create your own seitan from scratch. ⁠


Seitan dry ingredients

Vital wheat gluten • 150 g
Bacon nooch • 8 tbsp
Smoked paprika • 1 tsp
Onion powder • 1/4 tsp
Garlic powder • 1/4 tsp

Seitan wet ingredients

Mushroom stock • 60 ml
Veg oil • 30 ml
Maple syrup • 30 ml
Liquid smoke • 1 tbsp
Dijon mustard • 1/2 tbsp
Tomato puree • 1 tbsp

Marinade ingredients

Oil • 1 tbsp
Light soy sauce • 1 tbsp
Maple syrup • 1 tbsp
Bacon nooch • 1 tbsp
Paprika • 1 tsp
Liquid smoke • 1/2 tsp
Tomato puree • 1 tsp




In a mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients for the seitan. In a separate, smaller, bowl combine the wet ingredients.


Add the bowl with the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients bowl and bring it all together. This doesn’t take long!


Shape the dough into a rectangular shape roughly 3cm thick. Place the dough on a sheet of greaseproof paper and in steamer for 30 minutes. If you don’t have a steamer, go and buy one. Don’t worry I can wait.


Whilst the dough is steaming, combine the marinade ingredients.


Once steamed and cool to room temperature, slice your bacon and coat it in the marinade. Now, fry it off in a pan to make a textbook vegan bacon sandwich!


You can also leave the marinade off and cut it up and use in quiches, pasta dishes and pizza toppings.
