SEITAN GYRO “MEAT”

EARTH ANGEL VEGAN’S Seitan Gyro Meat is really good and really easy.  I promised I would post the recipe shortly after the Tzatziki sauce recipe!  Now you can make a killer gyro too~ img_2085

Seitan is a high protein vegan food made from cooked wheat gluten.  It is actually wheat with the starch removed.  Seitan was first made in the 6th century!  You will need a high quality preferably organic vital wheat gluten… which can be found in large grocery stores and health food or Asian markets.  I also use a silicone loaf pan.

RECIPE:

Preheat oven to 350

Wet/spice ingredients (place in a mixing bowl)

1/4 cup minced onion

1 clove minced garlic

1 tsp pink salt

1 teaspoon Wildtree Absolutely Onion

1 teaspoon Wildtree Garlic Galore

1 tsp black pepper

1 teaspoon Wildtree Worcestershire sauce

1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke

1 TBSP tahini

2 TBSP Wildtree organic ketchup

3/4 cup room temperature water

After mixing the wet/spice ingredients… add

1 1/4 cups vital wheat gluten

Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl except wheat gluten powder and mix thoroughly.  Then add the wheat gluten and mix until it comes together.  It will look like a raw meat mixture.

mix and knead it with your hands a bit and then press it into a silicone baking panimg_2346

Cover with foil and bake for 55 minutes.  Let cool and then slice into thin strips.  I re- heat the strips in a non stick skillet with a little water or vegetable broth until heated through.

To make the gyro… serve the Seitan strips on a warm pita with tomatoes, lettuce, and onion… top with the Wildtree Tzatziki sauce.

If you can’t order Wildtree… replace with your favorite similar spices.

You will love their products as they never use preservatives!
