Vegan Salami

Being a veg(etari)an doesn’t mean you can’t have a salami sandwich. And it doesn’t mean you have to buy expensive fake meats. You can easily make your own salami at home with this recipe. Tastes good on a slice of bread or can be used as a pizza topping.


Seitan Salami

Dry ingredients:
3 dl vital wheat gluten
1 dl gram flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp paprika*
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp black pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
(dash of cayenne or chili powder)

Wet ingredients:
1 onion
0,5 dl oil
0,5 dl soy sauce
2-3 tbsp tomato puré
2-4 garlic cloves
1 tsp liquid smoke*

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

Chop the onion and fry in the oil until it’s soft and maybe little bit brown too. Mince or finely grate the garlic. Mix onion, garlic, soy sauce, tomato puré and liquid smoke in a different bowl and add enough water to get total 3 dl of wet mixture. Mix dry and wet mixtures and knead a minute or two. Form into a sausage and wrap tightly in aluminium foil. Bake 75-90 minutes in 175 Celsius degrees. The baking time depends on your oven, if your salami is dry, you baked it too long (don’t worry, it’s still great on pizza).

*If you use smoked paprika, you can omit the liquid smoke.
