Easy Vegan Seitan Pepperoni
I made this video a while ago. I was so addicted to eating this exact recipe of veggie pepperoni it was unreal. I was making these huge batches back to back every week until one day my mind said “dude, go find something else”. I was half way through a batch when the request come in. I put the left over pepperoni in the freezer. A million years later brings us to this week. I was in a rush and needed some food. I remembered that I had these seitan pepperoni in the freezer. I microwaved them for maybe 2-3 minutes straight out of the freezer. DUDE YESSSSSSSSSS
If you buy store bought vegan seitan sausage I’d highly recommend you trying to make your own. Super easy to make, maybe 10 minutes of prep time. If you can make cake batter then you can make seitan at home. A bag of vital wheat gluten is less than $6 and makes mountains of vegan sausage (multiple batched).
Side note: vital wheat gluten flour has almost the same macros as chicken breast. Dude, pure protein.
I have easy seitan recipe post: Vegan Maple Breakfast Sausage, Vegan Mesquite Brown Sugar Sausage, Vegan Italian Sausage.
This made almost 2 lbs of veggie pepperoni.
1 cup broth (or hot water & bouillon), 2 TB oil, can tomato paste, 2 cups gluten flour (240g), 4 ts italian seasoning, 4 ts smoked paprika, 1 TB garlic, 2 ts coriander powder, 2 ts crushed fennel seed, 1 TB sugar, 2 ts salt, 1.5 ts black pepper, 1.5 ts onion powder, 1 ts chili flakes, dash of liquid smoke
- Whisk everything together except gluten flour
- Mix in gluten flour with a spoon
- Divide into as many portions as you’d like. Any size will work.
- Roll foil around each pepperoni dough. Twist the ends of each foil.
- Steam pepperoni for 45 minutes
- Once cooked remove foil and store in fridge or freezer. ENJOY
