Steamed Seitan Smoky Nuggets

Steamed Seitan Smoky Nuggets Recipe

By Veegs

🔪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.
