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~
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.
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 pan
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.
