Seitan With Garlic And Ginger

The seitan recipes seem to be most popular recipes in our blog, so here’s one more. First I wrote a recipe for basic seitan that can be used for things like stit fries, stroganoff or stews. The second recipe uses only half of the basic seitan, so if you don’t want to eat more seitan in near future, you can freeze the rest or half the recipe. We had the seitan with rutabaga casserole and beet salad.


4 dl vital wheat gluten
2 dl gram flour
0,5 tsp smoked paprika
0,5 tsp regular paprika
1 tsp black pepper
0,5 tsp white pepper

2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp minced garlic

about 2 l water
1 vegetable bouillon cube
1 bay leaf
1 tsp whole pepper corns
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp red wine vinegar

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Combine soy sauce, vinegar, oil and garlic in another bowl and add water until you have 2,5 dl wet mixture. Pour the wet mixture to the dry mixture, stirr and knead couple of minutes. Make four balls.

Bring the broth to boil and cook the seitan balls in it for half an hour. You can leave the balls to the broth for another half an hour or longer to absorb flavour, but it’s not necessary.

Seitan with Garlic and Ginger

2-3 tbsp oil
2 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp minced ginger
0,5-1 tsp paprika
1 onion
2 seitan balls
3,5 dl seitan cooking broth
1 tbsp wheat flour

Cut the onion to half moons, cut the seitan to cubes or strips. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add garlic, ginger and paprika, stirr and add onion. Sauté a minute and add seitan. Fry, stirring now and then, until seitan is nice and brown on each side. Add 3 dl cooking broth to the pan and bring to boil. Mix the flour with the remaining 0,5 dl broth and add to the pan. Cook on low heat for 5 minutes.
