Steamed Seitan Smoky Nuggets Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes
👩🍳Cook Time: 40 minutes
¾ cup vital wheat gluten
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons chickpea flour
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
½ cup vegetable broth
2 tablespoons tomato sauce
1 tablespoon tamari
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
½ teaspoon coconut oil
1Add the gluten, flour, and garlic and onion powders to a large bowl.
2Add the broth, tomato sauce, tamari, liquid smoke, and oil to a small bowl and mix well. Pour the liquid into the dry ingredients and mix. Knead for 2 minutes until elastic. You will see it pull back into a rounder shape as you knead. This is a firm dough and will not double in size while cooking.
3Add 5 cups water to a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Place a steamer basket inside the pan and turn down the heat to simmer.
4Use a pastry cutter to slice off irregular pieces. You can squeeze them into a ball, as best you can, or leave chunky. You can also steam as one log and cut into chunks after steaming and cooling.
5Steam for 40 minutes.
6Remove the seitan to cool and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 4 months.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
