Vegan Seitan Cheese Steak

Ever get hungry for a warm cheese steak sandwich? Here is a great vegan version, featuring an improved seitan.

Here are the ingredients and instructions, compliments of the chef’s You Tube channel.

Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients, then mix both together for seitan:
Dry ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup vital wheat gluten
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 cup garbonzo bean powder (or chick pea flour)
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp mesquite ( http://bit.ly/Hozrdq )
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric

Wet ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 2 cloves of shredded garlic
  • pinch of pepper

Add all ingredients together and form a dough. Cut in half and make two logs wrap each part of seitan in cheesecloth and place in casserole dish.

Stock to cook seitan in:

  • 1 1/2 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 diced onion
  • 4 smashed cloves garlic
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 2 cups water

Heat on stove 5-10 mins

Pour in casserole dish to cover seitan. Cover dish and place in oven 350 for 1 hour. Then flip seitan and continue to cook for 1/2 hour uncovered. If still too soft, then cook for another 20 mins.

Daiya cheese sauce

  • 1 cup Daiya cheese (cheddar)
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • pinch of pepper
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard

Stir it all together over medium heat and set aside.

Slice up your seitan, and saute it together with a diced onion and diced poblano pepper. Toast a roll of your choice and add Vegenaise and your seitan saute to it. Add Daiya cheese sauce.
