Ingredients

Method

1

Add all the ingredients up to, but not including, the vital wheat gluten to a blender and process until very smooth.

2

Measure the vital wheat gluten into a mixing bowl and pour in the contents of the blender. Mix everything together with a spatula until a well combined, soft ball of dough has been formed. Leave to rest for 10 minutes.

3

Add the additional bouillon powder, onion, garlic cloves, bay, thyme and peppercorns to a large pan and fill half way with water. Place over a medium-low heat to come to a simmer.

4

Turn the dough out onto a lightly oiled surface and knead well for a minimum of 5 minutes. Shape into a rough log shape and wrap in a triple layer of strong foil, twisting the ends to seal.

5

Place the parcel into the simmering water and cover with a lid. Cook at a gentle simmer for 1 hour, checking the water regularly and topping it up if necessary.

6

Preheat the oven to 180°C (Gas Mark 4, 350°F). Once the seitan has finished simmering, place the still wrapped parcel in a baking dish and transfer to the oven to bake for 30 minutes.

7

When the seitan is fully cooked, remove it from the oven and leave to cool in the foil wrapping. Chill in the fridge overnight before unwrapping and slicing.
