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. ⁠

Ingredients

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

Steps

Method

1

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

2

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

3

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.

4

Whilst the dough is steaming, combine the marinade ingredients.

5

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!

6

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