recipe at PPK.
This was delicious when cut into pieces, and fried up in olive oil, and the hot pieces put over a green salad with boiled potato.
Start a large pan of water on the stove and heating up for steaming.
Combine in a bowl:
1/2 C cooked chickpeas, mashed
1 C water
1-2 TB tomato paste
2 TB reduced sodium soy sauce (but then I thought thye maybe needed more salt??)
1.25 C vital wheat gluten
0.25 C nutritional yeast
3 cloves garlic, pressed
1.5 tsp crushed fennel seeds
0.5 - 1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp oregano
Now divide the dough into four chunks. Roll each into a sausage/tootsie roll shape in 4 sheets of aluminum foil.
Place foil wrapped logs in a steamer basket. Steam for 40 minutes (medium or low heat).
Unwrap, then enjoy immediately or refrigerate. I prefer my seitan sausage to be cooked again or at least heated through for serving- and I think it needs a little more grease/oil, so I like to pan fry it with olive oil. I've seen others bbq these like a hot dog.
