Fried Seitan Schnitzel (vegan) / Seitan pohanci (veganski)

This recipe is still a bit of a work in progress, but I’m so excited that I’m just going to share it right away and maybe do an update as I tweak it around more. Honestly, the meaty flavor and texture are so on point here that I am thoroughly convinced that the majority (if not all) store-bought meat products out there have various percentages of seitan sneaked into them as well.

But anyhow, without further ado here’s an awesome vegan schnitzel recipe for you all to try out. Also, please note that these are super filling and try as you may, a small amount of gluten flour yields huge amounts of seitan. Which means that is also a really great budget-friendly option.

I decided to fry the schnitzels in the oven to reduce oil and make them a bit healthier. Feel free to deep-fry them, or use an air fryer, though.

METHOD:

In a bowl, whisk together chickpea flour, gluten flour, salt, garlic powder and black pepper. Add in the oil, soy sauce and water. Stir for a few seconds until a shabby dough forms, then knead it lightly for a minute. Divide the dough into half and flatten it as much as you can. Wrap loosely in aluminum foil, then steam for about 40 minutes.

Once seitan is done steaming, carefully unwrap it and allow it to cool a bit. Preheat your oven to 200°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, if you’re frying seitan schnitzels in the oven. Cut each piece of seitan into quarters. In a bowl, whisk together flour and water. Dunk seitan chunks into flour and water mix, shake off excess batter and coat the pieces with breadcrumbs. Repeat until all seitan chunks are coated. Brush each piece of seitan with oil on both sides and spread them out on a prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes, until crispy and golden brown to your liking.

Ovaj recept je još uvijek djelomično u razvoju, ali sam i sad već jako uzbuđena sa rezultatom, pa sam ga odlučila objaviti i eventualno kasnije nešto prepraviti kako budem modificirala stvari. Iskreno, po meni su i tekstura i okus mesa odlično nabodeni, tako da sam sve više uvjerena da većina dućanskih mesnih proizvoda (ako ne i svi), imaju u sebi neki postotak podmetnutog seitana.

No, bez daljnjeg otezanja, evo vam odličan recept za veganske pohane šnicle da ga isprobate. Također, uzmite u ubzir da su ovi pohanci jako zasitni, a od samo male količine glutenskog brašna dobiti ćete ogromnu količinu seitana. Stoga je ovo jelo ujedno i super opcija za male budžete.

Ja sam odlučila pohance peći u pečnici da smanjim količinu ulja i da budu malo zdraviji. Vi ih slobodno ispohajte na tavi ili u air fryeru, ako ga imate.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 2,28 kn po porciji / 9,11 kn za sve)

Za seitan:

2 žlice slanutkovog brašna (1,00 kn)

6 žlica glutenskog brašna (3,00 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

2 žlice soja sosa (1,00 kn)

½ šalice vode (–)

Za pohanje:

1 šalica glatkog brašna (0,50 kn)

½ šalice vode (–)

1 šalica krušnih mrvica (1,50 kn)

4 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,40 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U zdjelici pomiješajte slanutkovo brašno, glutensko brašno, sol, češnjak i papar. Dodajte ulje, soja sos i vodu, pa kratko promiješajte da se formira labavo tijesto. Rukom promijesite samo minutu, pa podijelite tijesto na dva dijela. Spljoštite svaki dio najbolje što možete, pa ih labavo zamotajte u aluminijsku foliju. Kuhajte na pari 40 minuta.

Kada je seitan gotov, pažljivo ga odmotajte i pustite da se kratko ohladi. Ako ćete pohati u pećnici, zagrijte ju na 200°C i obložite protvan obložite papirom za pečenje. Svaki komad seitana razrežite na četiri dijela. U zdjelici pomiješajte brašno i vodu, pa komade seitana umačite u tu smjesu i onda obložite krušnim mrvicama. Ponavljajte postupak dok ne ispanirate sve komade. Svaki komad premažite uljem sa obje strane, pa ih raširite po pripremljenom protvanu. Pecite oko 20 minuta, dok pohanci ne budu hrskavi i zlatno smeđi prema vašem ukusu.
