Vegan Meat in BBQ Sauce and Sundried Tomatoes (Beet Seitan)
Vegan Meat in BBQ Sauce and Sundried Tomatoes (Beet Seitan),
I am so excited to share with you this handsome piece of food. This is vegan beet seitan that I made, using the #washtheflour method.
I have written down, every single step that I did so I can share it with you. This was so much fun to eat! My husband, son and I absolutely loved it.
The process of washing flour can be intimidating because it is long, but honestly, it is very simple 💜 once you do it once you realize it is not as difficult as you might have thought...
Fortified nutritional yeast is a great source of complete protein, B vitamins and other nutrients. Nutritional yeast contains high amounts of vitamin B12 and just consuming a small amount of it daily, helps prevent deficiency in vegans.
Beets has one of the most beautiful, natural colors, they literally make every dish pop. Beets are also full of vitamins and minerals and they are low in calories and fat. They are extremely high in valuable vitamins and minerals. In fact, they contain a bit of almost all the vitamins and minerals that you need. Beets have been proven to help improve athletic skills and, decrease the risk for hearts disease.
Garlic is low in calories and rich in vitamin C, vitamin B6 and manganese. It also contains trace amounts of various other nutrients.
Whenever I go into the kitchen, whether it is for cooking or baking, I need to have my music with me. I thought it would be nice to share with you the exact song that describes my feeling towards each recipe. That way you can have a similar experience while cooking...
This recipe is so out different than anything I could imagine in the beginning of my vegan journey, the only song that fits for me is Imagination by Foster The People

Wash The Flour Seitan:
* I suggest separating the dough balls into different bowls because it is easier in my opinion to work with smaller amounts. Make sure to divide the water accordingly.
** The whole first part of the recipe (steps 1-13) is just "Wash the flour" method for basic seitan. You can use it as a base for many types of fake meat, the differences with the end result will depend on the cooking method and the spices you flavor it with.
*** My husband wouldn't allow me to use the phrase WTF (for obvious reasons :) while writing this manual, but I feel it is important for any seitanist out there to know. WTF is a very common way to refer to the Wash The Flour method.
Have you already tried it?
