Vegan Seitan Chicken / Veganska seitan piletina

I’ve ordered a vegan chicken broth powder off of iHerb a while back and decided to make vegan chicken with it. I’ve already made seitan several times before, so I knew what to expect. The chicken flavor wasn’t as prominent as one would hope – I imagine adding more broth would help out, but I am still pretty happy with how this batch turned out. For a really delicious extra flavor I strongly suggest marinating the steamed seitan in soy sauce and briefly frying it up on an oiled pan.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 0.47 EUR per serving / 1.86 EUR for all)

1 cup gluten flour (0.80 EUR)

1 cup chickpea flour (0.67 EUR)

1 tbsp vegan chicken broth powder (0.13 EUR)

½ tsp garlic powder (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp smoked paprika (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.13 EUR)

2 tbsp sunflower seed oil (0.03 EUR)

2/3 cup warm water (–)

METHOD:

In a bowl whisk together gluten and chickpea flour, broth powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Just a fair warning – if your broth powder isn’t salty, add in more salt, but mine was really, really salty. Add in sesame oil, sunflower seed oil and water then stir to combine. Once the dough forms up, knead it for a few minutes and flatten into disc.

Wrap the dough up in aluminum foil, then place into a steamer basket and steam for about 45 minutes. After 45 minutes carefully remove and unwrap. You can eat seitan as it is, but as I already suggested, it will taste best when tossed with some soy sauce and briefly fried in a pan to crispiness. Leave any leftover seitan to cool off completely before tightly wrapping it up in cling foil and storing in fridge. You can also freeze it for a much later use.

Ima već neko vrijeme da sam preko iHerba naručila veganski temeljac sa okusom piletine pa sam odlučila od toga pripremiti što drugo nego vegansku piletinu. Pošto sam seitan već radila doma nekoliko puta, znala sam što treba očekivati. Aroma piletine i nije bila baš tako jako izražena kako sam se nadala – mislim da jednostavno treba dodati još više tog temeljca, ali sam i dalje zadovoljna sa time kako mi je seitan ispao. Za ekstra ukusno jelo toplo vam preporučam da seitan koji ste skuhali na pari dodatno marinirate u soja sosu, pa onda još kratko popržite na nauljenoj tavi.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 3,49 kn po porciji / 13,96 kn za sve)

1 šalica glutenskog brašna (6,00 kn)

1 šalica brašna od slanutka (5,00 kn)

1 žlica veganskog pilećeg temeljca u prahu (1,00 kn)

½ žličice češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

½ žličice dimljene paprike (0,25 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

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

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

2 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,20 kn)

2/3 šalice tople vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

U zdjelici pomiješajte skupa glutensko i brašno od slanutka, temeljac u prahu, češnjak, papriku, sol i papar. Samo malo upozorenje – ako vam temeljac nije slan, obavezno dodajte još soli, ali moj je bio baš jako, jako slan. Dodajte sezamovo i suncokretovo ulje i vodu, pa promiješajte da se sve sjedini. Kada se tijesto formira, mijesite ga koju minutu i spljoštite u disk.

Čvrsto umotajte disk od tijesta u aluminijsku foliju pa kuhajte na pari 45 minuta. Nakon 45 minuta pažljivo otpakirajte seitan. Možete ga jesti i ovakvog kakav je, ali kao što sam već napisala, meni je tisuću puta ukusniji kada se kratko marinira u soja sosu i onda isprži na tavi da bude hrskav. Sav preostali seitan ostavite da se do kraja ohladi prije nego što ćete ga dobro zamotati u prijanjajuću foliju i spremiti u hladnjak. Ako ga želite koristiti nekad kasnije, možete ga također i smrznuti.
